    It uses bad FXAA by default. No way to enable or disable it.

    Just like every game that has Nvidia written all over it.

    That explains why sharpening makes it look a ton better...

    I like your colors but it seems too bright at day.

    so I'm back to search for another resizing software... I'm not satisfied with IrFanView. It kinda blurs them when I resample (resize option is awful). Maybe I need a plugin?

    BTW this game has the most insane detailed graphics I have ever seen. Coupled with SweetFX + Downsampling is just incredible if you ask me. Increased sharpness is worth every fps lost if you ask me.

    Try Bell or B-Spline+Sharpen with InfraView

    Thanks.
    MSI Afterburner Overlay was the problem.:)

    Sorry if it seems like a bother but could you explain what resize and resample talk is going on? I'm not exactly a image/graphics expert or something. I just post full res screens.

    I've been using Fastone Imageviewer and Photoshop cs6 batch resize. Fastone lets you batch resize using lanczos2\lanczos3 filters. Photoshop typically comes out the sharpest, but sometimes Fastone does a better job at removing aliasing when I resample from 2160p.

    full shots are big for some users but if you use some good software for resizing shots looks much better without lost quality. Full res. shots are ok if are not too big. I prefer big shots but for this page are not necessary. I use Zoner photo Studio but best is Photoshop. From free programs are good Infra View or Paint.Net.

    Agreed nice shots everyone. I admit that these MW shots are great! Thanks for the resizing recommendations I'll check it out.

    Now I need to make that first person camera mod work in Sleeping dogs. >.<

    Never use Resize - use Resample instead.
    It offers many algorithms - I use Lanczos myself.
