    A bit of a problem with the House comparison... aside from a couple of artwork tweaks, the image is taken at such a LOW resolution that you can't really see any difference between the two. Better effect would have been to zoom IN on the house in both pics to show the lack of pixelation and distortion that the High Res update should be working on reducing or eliminating.

    The two biggest problems with the images: 1. The image is taken at "default artwork resolution" which does NOT show the problems that people are having with low res artwork, and 2. The images themselves are so small/low resolution that there's almost no differentiating between them.

    Differences I see in the two pics:

    - The Hanging Banner is more detailed.
    - The House sign is different (diagonally split in Low Res, vertically split in High Res)
    - Some higher contrast values in the shadows giving more delineation between touching objects (mainly the books on the tables)

    While I'm excited to see images of high res artwork updates... it kind of needs to actually SHOW the difference.

    I thought the whole thing looked a lot sharper, especially the windows. - but I'm no graphics expert.

    Looking good! But yes, Really need full 1080p images of the clients to compare. Small size still shows theres more detail throughout every tile though.

    Thanks Mapper... that actually shows things a lot better than two separate images.
