The Salt River by TrentLarsonphoto The Salt River by TrentLarsonphoto
It's been almost two months since i've gone hiking. Partly because it's sooooo hot (110 everyday) and partly because the last time I went hiking, I almost stepped on a rattlesnake. This was taken in the Lower Salt River, just downstream from Saguaro Lake, north of Phoenix, AZ.

Action scripts don't work so well in Elements, so these pages that people keep linking to may not work, no matter the version. There are some things you can try. What everyone is trying to say: barring action scripts, you will need to manually sharpen prior to saving for web. See something like this for a brief guide on how to do that. Whenever you resize, you make the image soft and applying subtle sharpening makes it crisp again.

Love the scene though. Beautiful weather and gorgeous light. In all my years in AZ I've never actually made it down to the Salt River. Beautiful spot! Looks very inviting, knowing how warm it is down there. I like the warm colors in the atmosphere and reflected in the water.

Thank you very much for the kind words and taking the time to help me out. I'm sorry it's taken me so long to respond, but i've been really busy. As for the action scripts; I looked at that site and different places, and couldn't find anything that worked. I guess i'll just have to wait until I have the money to buy the real photoshop.

Thanks for the link, but it didn't work. I tried to save it for the web, and I think it looks a little better, but i'm sure it could still be better.

Great shot, I was thinking of heading that way to do some shooting. Love the colors throughout the image. I do agree however it is just a tad soft. You can save it for web as a jpeg which I find usually keeps everything in tact, though you will lose the exif data from the image.

Thanks. It's definately worth it to go out there, and it's right below a parking lot! I tried saving it for the web, and I put it on here, so hopefully it did something.

I was out there last week tubing across it, but I would like to get some shots in this summer. It looks a bit sharper, but it looks like there is a color cast above the rocks. Was this HDR by any chance?

I ended up just re-doing the whole thing. I still can't get it as sharp as I want, but oh well. I've never tubed the salt...is it fun?
