Holiday season and photography

It's that time of year again when the family gathers for the holidays.  There are always enough cameras, ready to take the perfect photo.  Camera phones, point and shoots and DSLR's.  Which
takes the best photo?

Well, they all take great photos if all you are going  to do is upload them to social media or email them.  I have found that Facebook compresses the photos into a really non sharp image.  I have experimented on the proper setting to get a sharp photo on Facebook.  I have borrowed information from the Internet and have added a little of my own.

After post production, if you do that, of the photo, I resize to 150-200 dpi.  730 pixels on the long side.  Sharpen then save to the web with no other changes.  It seems to work for me.
