    Damn, it worked the first time, but then I edited to fix a typo and some grammar. I'll try to fix it. I think the links are working, though - they do on my end.

    You were probably editing things when I checked - they are working now.

    No, I double-checked after your post (after I'd edited), and I only saw the links as code.

    I've searched in the past, and never could find the size limits for attachments - which is why I've not uploaded before. Where can I find them?

    When you click on the Paper Click on the "Advanced" page it takes you to a page labelled "Manage Attachments". If you scroll down that page, there is a table lower down with all the format choices, and the file size (expressed in terms of pixels).

    Ah, I just used the little picture icon. I'll check it out. I had expected something in the FAQ.

    And as for your problems with focussing, I'd suggest practicing in better light until you get used to the camera.

    It would be a good idea to find a subject to use for focus tests that makes it easy to tell when you are front-focussing or rear-focussing.

    OK, just checked my post again. I'd thought the software would reject something too large. Should I resample my images and replace them?

    Yes - the software resizes in a strange way (when it doesn't reject them outright).

    I'm sorry, I'm being especially dense tonight. My images are jpg and within the limits. I was looking at the limits for jpeg. I'm a computer tech, and normally don't differentiate between jpg, jpeg and jpe.

    I prefer png for web graphics, but jpg is what I got from the lab and I didn't feel like converting.

    Those don't look as bad as I expected from the original post---focus is placed a little forward or back of where you wanted it, but nothing I wouldn't expect from some struggles dealing with the shallow DOF of a large aperture in a large format.

    It seems like that nice vertical pipe should have been an extremely easy target to focus on with the horizontal split prism, though. I wonder if you aren't shifting your posture a little bit back or forward after focusing---the kind of unsteadiness that you can get away with if there's more DOF, but in these examples it would be pretty easy to lean just a little and get this amount of shift. A heavier camera might exacerbate that; so might some little things that people tend to do while focussing, like holding their breath (don't do that).

    I'm also led to compare to guitars, but I have the opposite experience from you. On the old dreadnought that I've been playing for the last 25 years, I'm a badass, or at least I can get myself into that playing space where I *feel* like a badass. When I got a really good, really responsive fingerpicking guitar, I seemingly became a much worse player, because all my bad habits were audible! Just so with focussing in larger formats---the little bit of slop that you wouldn't have noticed on a 35mm camera suddenly matters.

    The largest format I've ever shot is 8x10, but I'm told that the Absurdly Large Format people---20x24 and so on---basically need to go over the ground glass, micron by micron, with a loupe, deciding *which* eyelash is going to be in critical focus. Phew.
