I'm pretty new to digital processing so this may have been answered many times before. How do I get the best image quality when converting a NEF file to a very small JPEG file for web posting? I use primarily Capture NX2 but I also have purchased DxO.

I guess my question is more related to sequence than anything else. Is it preferable to make any and all modifications to a NEF file first, then save as a small JPEG file? Or should I downsize first and then make changes, proceed with sharpening, etc? Maybe it doesn't make any difference.

Anyway, I notice that while my NEF files look great on my computer screen, but my web sized jpegs generally look awful, so I'm definitely doing something wrong.

I posted 4 photographs under Wildlife Photography, under my name of course William Rounds and perhaps someone with a sharp eye could critique them for me, letting me know how I might be able to obtain better results. Thanks for your input.
