Post your photos, and what gear you used to make the capture if you want.
Went out innawoods for about 3 hours today. 3rd weekend I've had my new 100mm 2.8 macro.
Finally got a spider portrait that wasn't a goofy ass daddy longlegs

"OP here, got back from my hike less than an hour ago. Uploading some images as they're processed.
Noticing I'm able to get a lot of nice usable images compared to shooting wildlife, but a flash and being extra close to your subjects helps. Just gotta find them.
All shot with a K-3 and 100mm WR macro. Haven't yet experimented with extension tubes or lens reversal, just learning the ropes as I haven't done any macro shooting before getting the new lens.

Never used a flash before so not really sure, have no basis for comparison.
It lets me do high speed continuous shooting as long as my batteries are juiced up, works well enough for me for under 100 bucks. Wish it could get a touch brighter on occasion though.

Thanks, macro is fun. Birds and stuff can be frustrating but most of this stuff just sits there and lets you snap away
And yeah the K-3 has the same sensor as the D7100, the K1 same as the D810. The 100mm WR macro is super sharp. By far the best lens I own, but it's also the only lens I own that cost more than 250 bucks.
>>3474312
Yeah, had to tweak exposure comp and play around with the metering modes a bit today. It was overcast from the storms earlier and didn't have as much natural light as normal. Plus I'm still making adjustments to my macro settings.

If you print the two I guarantee you will like the first one better, shows more detail. You straight on removed detail in the second one.
You will notice detail more than noise, especially in print, that is why slightly off focus shots are better with a tiny bit of fine grain. Some of the printing oriented sharpening gives fine grain as well."

No, that's me who uses that type lens. The one used in >>3474389 is a reversed, "Zeika Cine 6.5mm f/1.9 Wide Angle." Photo of that one is >>3473326 That lens is originally a D-mount.

The one you posted the photo of looks like the reversed, "Tamron TV Zoom Lens 12.5mm - 75mm f/1.8" I used in most of the previous thread (pic related.) I put a ring on it so I can use the ring light, but I rarely use that now and prefer the light tube you see on top. To fit this lens onto a camera it just has a 49mm Reverse Ring that screws into the filter threads. The lens is originally a C-mount, but I took off most of the hardware so the rear lens could have more room. The cardboard thing on the lens is a lens hood with black flocking inside. It really helps reduce lens flares/glare.

Both lenses can have wicked lens flare and lighting issues because they are using the shortest focal length (6.5mm and 12.5mm). For the TV zoom lens, I can go up to 75mm and get some really good shots and have a moderate, but still somewhat short working distance.

If you can source a lens with filter threads, that means you can use it reversed using a Reverse Ring. Meaning ANY lens from ANY camera will work very easily as a macro lens. While this is true if you have a mount to mount adapter, the Reverse Rings are usually $3 or less on ebay.

One thing to keep in mind. short focal lengths reversed = super short working distances 10-20mm. That's fine if you can stalk living creatures easily enough or use a studio. You'll need to rig something DIY for better lighting.

>>3474932
That mod looks like a normal camera lens with the microscope objective attached using a step-up or step-down ring or maybe a reverse ring. Or, if it is a full DIY job then they probably just attached something to a UV filter ring with the glass removed. Which I've done in the past for other stuff.

Here's the Zeika 6.5mm reversed with a 2x Teleconverter and about 23mm extension. This is the eye of a carpenter bee. In each lens of the eye, you can see 3 of the LEDs from the flashlight I was shining on it (no flash tube for the teleconverter.) I think if I had more light, I'd have vastly better IQ despite the use of the teleconverter and its hideous CA. This is resized, but not cropped.

Yes, the black one fits over the entire flip-up flash while the gold one just butts up against the flash. Of all the flash solutions I tried, those were the best for those lenses used in that manner. I have an LED ring light but it is way too weak for this kind of thing, due to short working distances. A light that has those bendy lights which you can move into position would be better I'd assume. The real trick is getting enough light there without causing terrible glare. Like this image of the bee's eye that doesn't use the lens hood. The spike of flare in the middle can't be removed easily without a lens hood.

It would need to be something like this. That way it could be positioned to edge past the lens hood yet not be so far out as to cause lens flare/glare. So, I use the on-camera flash with a tube. For the Tamron lens it is perfect. For the Zeika lens I'm rigging up other stuff now. With some subjects I can take the lens hood off and put the LED Ring Flash over the lens since it is so tiny. That allows me to set it back far enough so there's no glare/flare.

Do you have a recommendation for a flash that goes above GN30 which can get in tight like that?

"I just hooked the Zeika lens up to my NIKKOR 35-200mm using a reverse ring. It looks like the setup in >>3474932 only without all the extra work. I think 250mm-300mm would be better. There's a tiny amount of physical vignetting from the aperture blades at f/8.

Here's a pic taken using that stacked lens setup along with the ring flash. The magnification should be over 31:1 and the IQ is really pretty terrible. I can't measure the magnification exactly because there's a good bit of gap between the two lenses which I neglected to didn't measure. Plus, the it is magnified so much that you can't see the 2 lines on the mm metric measuring stick I've been using. It just takes a pic of what's in between. You can actually see holes and crevasses in the plastic. It looks like a sponge.

Anyway, here's the bee eye again with new IQ problems which comes from using the second lens coupled to the Zeika. I'll just be sticking with the reversed Zeika alone from now on. I've been down this rabbit hole with other lenses and the IQ just gets worse the further you push it. Which makes for shitty images for art, but neat for just seeing what's down there.

I rotated it so the mm lines could be seen on the ruler, but that space between them is smaller than 1mm which doesn't help me measure it.

">>3475155
Yeah, learning to pull back enough to get a good composition is much harder in macro than other stuff. 1:1 on a crop will be even more difficult since there's less space on the sensor. The one thing that may help you is to think, "How do I tell a story with one photo?"

>>3475157
A good working distance always helps. Remember breath control. Arthropods are very sensitive to air movement, vibration, and overhead movements. While maneuvering for photos move slowly, hide your breathing, don't cross through any light that will cast a sudden shadow, and don't make vibrations. Since it is a captive specimen, repeated encounters will help desensitize it to your presence. That will allow an easier workflow for you to get increasingly closer shots or even to stage shots.

Remember, they are far more afraid of you and they usually only bite when pinned, trying to hang on in a hard wind, or trying to fling them off (the bite to hold on better).

>>3475158
Just tape a paper tube to the lens and body. Don't wrap the tape over any lettering/numbering on the gear. Don't for once think the tape will hold it together. Pretend you are free lensing. This just allows you do it at a set distance without light interfering. Cut the tube to the desired length and only use light tight tubes."

Thank you. You can get great shots without a flash as long as you have plenty of light, but stopping down to get enough depth of field eats a lot of your light. My flash setup is pretty cheap, and desu I could probably get away with just using my camera's pop up flash in a pinch.
And yeah, all my shots are handheld

True, but it also has an extra piece of glass which will affect quality. Cheaper ones are usually worse than the expensive ones. It is much the same as using a Teleconverter. extra glass = worse IQ.

"Oh man, I got another 8mm Cine lens, "Wollensak Raptar 1.5 Inch f/3.5 Cine Telephoto." 1.5" is about 38.1mm and I'm using it reversed with about 20mm of extension. This thing is quite amazing when compared to the TV lens from >>3474954 and other 8mm Cine from >>3473326 There's pretty much no flare or glare even when there's a ton of white and bright stuff in frame or just downrange. The rear of the lens has quite a distance from the mounting threads to the rear element. That acts as a large narrow and perfect lens hood, so contrast is quite good. Even with that, it has about 40mm of working distance. It is also clearer than the other lenses and barely needs any corrections.

I just have to really up my manual-focus-stacking game, because errors in the automation really stands out well now. Here's some samples. f/3.5 is the middle and f/8 is the top right, if you want to see what bokeh it has. The only focus stack is the carpenter bee (6 photos) and everything is 1.36:1 magnification.

Oh, and the kicker is, I paid $5 for this lens.

All you need to do is use anything that achieves 1:1 or more for macro. If you have a SLR/DSLR you can use a dedicated lens or reverse a lens, use extension tubes or bellows. Just don't put extra glass in the mix to get to 1:1 or the quality starts to go down sharply. It is always better to have a purpose built lens instead of using reversed lens, bellows, or tubes.

As for your location, that shouldn't be a problem for inspiration. If you need subjects and want insects, go out at night and pick up insects under street lamps to take home."

The lens I have is the Zuiko 80mm F4.

http://www.coinimaging.com/oly80bel.html

It is a bellows lens designed to be optimum at 1:1 but it can be pushed last that to 2:1 using the included first party adapter.

Will I need a tripod just out in the field? I could easily take it to one of the many gardens in London for this sort of thing but I've been put off by risky handheld shots"

Handheld macro needs good technique, expect a lot of missed shots from moving a bit and leaning out of focus. Practice makes perfect."

If you use film, use a tripod. If you use digital, you can do handheld or tripod. Just take a few more shots when doing handheld and have enough light to get faster exposure speeds so motion blur won't be a problem."

I have an older film era version of the AF SP 90/2.8 (72E) and it is very nice, the optical formula is the same up until the most recent which also has stabilization. If you want a cheap one, look for the Tamron 72E or 172E, shuld be available in EF mount on ebay

"I have a "Neweer RF-550D" ring light (GN 49.21'/15m) that uses LEDs. I've used it for more than a year. I recently got a, "Vivitar VIV-DF-586" ring light (GN 59.06'/18m). Holy shit, the Vivitar light is ultra bright. It is so bright that I'm having trouble using it at f/8 so I'll need to fix that soon. It works perfectly for f/16 but I need that clarity that f/8 gives. It makes me think that the Neweer light has its GN rating faked or something. The Vivitar light doesn't use LEDs and that's a huge difference too. The Neweer light is good for continuous lighting at least. The Vivitar sounds like a Gauss rifle charging up and firing with an ultra high pitch whine that never goes away even when it is ready to fire. Which is kind of annoying and loud.

I guess that's the difference between a $30 LED light and a $65 light. The difference between them is like 10 whole stops of light for macro/super macro. I can't wait to get things settled with its use and get some good shots. I'll probably build an adjustable arm for off camera use and some diffusers for it."

"Okay, I took the lens from >>3477002 & >>3476987 and added the ring light from >>3481292 then I made a quick and dirty diffuser using a couple sheets of white paper. Here's a few results. I can go all the way to 9.54:1 at exp200 f/8 (extreme close up of the carpenter bee eye) and still be handheld easily with no other light source at all. The rest of the pics are at varying levels of magnification. I was swapping tubes on and off.

You shot it at f/16 so you're losing sharpness to diffraction.

Also, macro shots are usually done with focus stacking because of how thin the depth of field gets at that close of a focus."

Honestly it depends on conditions. You may need the extra depth of field if the subject is moving, so losing some sharpness to diffraction is better than missing focus. Like everything else with photography, it's all a bunch of trade-offs."

Agree, but I'm really curious to see if the aperture will have an effect on sharpness."

">>3481523
Oh and something people don't really think about regarding extension tubes and sharpness is that they make your aperture smaller than what you have it set to. Remember, it's not the physical size of the diaphragm opening that determines the f/#, but the apparent size (how large it appears). With extension tubes, you're moving the entire lens farther away from the sensor plane, so that makes the aperture appear smaller to it.

Dunno the math or any rules for figuring out what the effective aperture is with rings, but it does change things. You might also want to try out reversal rings before taking the plunge into a macro lens."
;


if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==3481570 && dateTime=="05/18/19(Sat)18:55:01")

">>3481480
Motion blur and nailing the DOF are the biggest enemies. Also, with tubes, while not adding extra problems like teleconverters add, still add problems to the final image. The glass of the lens you are using has its own "resolution" so to speak. This is due to microscopic imperfections among all the lens elements inside the lens. When you spread out the image using extension tubes it also spreads out these glass imperfections. The longer the extension tube the worse this gets. Some lenses are just not good for extension tubes.

48mm isn't too much for a nice sharp lens, but may be too much for a lower quality lens. The vintage manual NIKKOR 50mm reversed does really well, as does the same lens using extension tubes to reach 1:1. What 50mm Nikon are you using? You may want to simply get a reverse ring instead of using tubes. You can do "free lensing" with it to see how it would look with a reverse ring. If you are already reversing and using tubes then you may have reached the limit of that lens.

Making sure you are using f/8 is also a big thing for macro. Otherwise, you really won't like something like f/16 which will look fuzzy. While wider apertures make it blurrier and reduces the DOF a great deal. Another thing is, you really need to stop pixel peeping for all these various reasons. It isn't healthy.

>>3481509
I never sharpen my stuff. If you shot it correctly you won't need to and sharpening is usually pretty evident. A dedicated macro lens with good reviews will be very sharp.

>>3481533
For sharpness use f/8 on the lens aperture. For calculating light then you need to know the things you are referring to. Using another aperture than f/8 with tubes will only make things worse for sharpness."

Also, remember that it is really only extreme amounts of extension tube that totally tank IQ. Like this bee fur taken using a 171mm extension tube and reversed 6.5mm lens. The lens IQ isn't all that great to begin with and this amount of tube makes it even worse. So, a typical set of extension tube rings won't affect your photos very much.

For extension tubes you need to do tests and figure how each lens performs. With tube your aperture opening is smaller than stated. But each lens and even extension dimension performs differently."

">>3481578
While true, that only matters for exposure. The lens geometry for f/8 is what matters most for sharpness. The difference is drastic. Going from f/8 to f/5.6 or f/11 can amount to going from sharp to watercolors. But, yes the amount this occurs differs between lenses. You need to remember, you are not changing anything other than the size of the image projected. So, all the problems with sharpness are merely magnified. If you change the lens from the lens' normally sharpest settings then it will just make things worse with extension tubes."

> What 50mm Nikon are you using?
I'm using 50 1.8G so no manual control of the aperture. This is why I bought kenko tubes with contacts.
Tubes are just a transition step for me. I wanted to see if I like macro at all or not. So far I really like it and want to buy Laowa 25mm f/2.8 2.5-5X macro. Maybe even save up for their probe lens.

>>3481572
Sorry. This one I made with a Moment macro lens attachment for Iphone.

Well no wonder it isn't as clear as it could be. I have two G lenses and they've been the worst purchases I've made thus far. Even the Laowa one has manual aperture and everything I've seen from it has been excellent. You can still get good shots with the G lenses, you just need to work around their problems. For yours, I'd recommend getting a reverse ring and reverse aperture adapter. That will allow you to control the aperture manual when reversed. It should also be right around 1:1.

>>3481613
You select f/8 on the lens. That's all. The lens' physical bladed aperture must be at f/8 position.

All e.tubes affect sharpness. It is just worse if you stray away from a lens' f/8 aperture setting.

It really isn't as simple as that. Curvature of the lens plays a part as well. Extension tubes biggest problems are caused by light bending the wrong way towards the sensor. Native lenses are designed for optimum light transfer toward the sensor, extension tube changes that with most visible defect of noticeable corner softness. f8 often is safe bet, it'll be close enough to sharpest setting, even with tube disturbing light, but it's not optimal for every situation. When you need corner sharpness you'll find surprising results by closing aperture considerably. Even going way past what you'd think are diffraction limits! Coupled with forelens that reverses effects of tube, fortunate characteristics of native lens, and just right focal ranges, you can go and shoot at f18, f22 with same sharpness that you'd get at f8."

You wouldn't want to shoot anything macro without at least a flash or a more controlled and diffuse lighting setup.
The people you see with a naked camera doing "macro" handheld are doing 1:3-1:4 kind of close ups that can be hardly called macro shooting, you don't really need a flash for that. If you want stabilization, you use a tripod anyway. Motion blur mostly comes from wind and movement of the subject/environment and you leaning in and out and no amount of stabilization can help you in that."

That's wrong it never, "gets sharper". What you think is happening is actually just fuzzing things up. As the physical aperture gets smaller the diffraction gets worse. As the extension tube gets longer, the circles it casts to make the image get larger, which makes IQ even worse. Because, of the physical aperture, this is more like a discussion about pinholes. Tightening down to f/22 just makes everything a hot mess.

Go ahead and test it out yourself. Use a bellows."

To person who suggested me to use f8, thank you! Not sure if that is the sole reason, but it made everything sharper. Here is an example, shot at f8 firs, then f16. Had to make f16 one a little bit brighter, other that that no adjustments.

It looks sharper to me.

Another quick spider shot.
Any advice on how to keep your camera steady? Especially when you have to hold it above your head, or in other uncomfortable positions.

I needed just a little bit more depth of field for his eyes to be in focus.

Tripod, monopod, etc. Sometimes all you need to do is hold the camera with your hand and a walking stick.

I think you're not following the conversation. First two samples are regular samples. Diffraction past f8, and all that. You correctly identified that. It's the third one that uses advanced calibration. Obviously, it's use is very limited, but I'm just using it as an example of what tubes actually do to the lens.

I though, labels alone would make it understandable. To clear it.
>>3481934

Leftmost sample, just a lens. Expected diffraction past f8, noticeable at f22.
Center sample, extended lens. Logical diffraction past f8, noticeable at f22. Should also see some image degradation, but I fucked up on compression, and used sample of a high quality lens, so it's hardly visible.
Right sample, extension optimised for small apertures. Similar setup as >>3481871 Sharpness at f22 is better than f8.

I hope that's clear enough."

It isn't though, there's just more DoF for f22 while the f9 one is missed focus with the DoF barely on the cartridge in the first place. When you do stuff like this it is better to be looking down a ruler length so you can see where the DoF begins and ends. Then you can accurately compare without any issues.

I don't have f8 for that sample, but it really doesn't matter. Image only starts stabilizing around f11, and becomes best around f18-f20, then slight degradation.

Because faglord, field curvature is very much a thing and if you are using a lens that exhibits strong field curvature while doing macro, you can make it effectively impossible to get anything at all into focus at wider apertures because of the shape of the focal plane. By stopping down, you're just increasing the depth of field enough to where you can get shit into any focus at all.

Gearfaggotry is stupid, but there are times, especially when pushing to the extremes of performance, when gear absolutely matters. This is one of those cases.

But you're just lying out your ass trying to spread disinformation, so you can just fuck off."

>By stopping down, you're just increasing the depth of field enough to where you can get shit into any focus at all.

You essentially get so "small" relative to the length of extension tube that the aperture opening starts to become a pinhole f-stop where, "circles of confusion" come into play and everything gets fuzzy. I get that all the time with my gear. There's really no trade off when you want sharpness, unfortunately. A lot of that has to do with how sharp the lens is in the first place, but only to a certain point. Basically, use a more powerful lens if you are getting past x amount of extension, instead of using anything past that amount of extension.

One of these days I'll get some paper tubes and make a huge telescoping extension tube to see exactly where lenses start to crap out at. As example, with this image there's 171mm of extension with a reversed 6.5mm lens. It far overshoots the mark for fuzzy, it gets worse the further I push it, but f/8 is the clearest f-stop it seems. At least with it I'll be able to put it on the bellows and find out where its acceptable fuzziness max extension is. The subject is a ruler and the white line is a mm mark.

You don't know what "valid" means, do you, especially in terms of something like technical measures. For any of this to be "valid", you'd need to provide raws of each image with exif intact, use the same target at the same orientation across all trials, and have in frame some way of knowing the scale/distances of the setup (like as was pointed out earlier about using a ruler). All you've shown are images that you put some text on. Shit doesn't prove anything.

"Hey lads. First time poster here. So I have been getting into macro photography since I am a watchfag and I like to take photos of watches. Started of with my phone and a little lens taken out off one of those film cameras.
Bought a canon 450d with two lenses and now waiting on a sigma mini-wide bc it has manual aperture ring and cheap af. Got a set of extension tubes and a reverse ring for it and going to get close-up filters too.
Currently using a 18-200 on reverse but it's a pain in the ass.
What are type of lens is the best to get in as close as possible, but on a budget? Are reversers or extension tubes or close up filters the best to work with? Are there any /mpg/ approved set-up?
Thanks. Pic related: my first bug pic

I have little experience myself, but I've been reading a lot. I think in terms of image quality it's
dedicated macro > reverse > tubes > filter
You can combine some of these of course, and lighting is also very important, there's a lot of variables."

I don't recommend you getting close-up filters unless you don't mind the far lower quality images they make. Though, you can take a set of them and make some artistic things using the extreme degradation they cause to IQ. That's all I did with them (see pics). A reverse ring and/or tubes is really all you need and you'll get much better images using them instead of using close-up filters.

Amazon has really cheap bellows. They are the same as an extension tube, only you can adjust them as needed. You can couple them with extension tubes and a reverse ring to get the most out of a lens (with diminishing returns on IQ). A lens with a short focal length will give you more magnification, but at the cost of a far shorter working distance. 90mm to 100mm lenses give a comfortable working distance. Vintage manual lenses are really good for reversing since they are all manual. You can buy literally any lens that has filter threads and get a reverse ring for that filter size for your camera mount. Meaning the lens can be for other cameras and it won't matter. That will open up a great selection of lenses you may not have previously thought of. Ebay is a great place to get cheap vintage lenses.

The anon here >>3485837 is correct.

I actually buy "FUGUS!" lenses for dirt cheap so I can clean them. A lot of the time the fungus doesn't seem to affect the lens. It is those lenses that you can see actual "haze" in them when you peer through them with your eye that are uncleanable. Their lens coatings have been ruined by something, maybe heat, maybe cleaning fluid, etc. The worst that I've seen fungus do is to make a couple lenses discolored in that area, but the photos are unaffected it seems.

Yes, that was my plan too, but I fucked up the coating on one of the lenses inside. And as you can see on the canon pic fungus affected the image. The lens repair dudes told me that there are types of funguses which start "eating" the caoting effectively causing cracks on it."

While that is true, it is pretty rare. Most are eating microscopic dust particles on the surface. After cleaning enough lenses you can pretty much tell which is which."

Cleaning lens is not fun so far. have to be said that the mini-wide is somewhat complicated, it seems so. Canon fd mount as well. Eventho I repair watches which are usually made of 100+ parts I still had trouble with it. Well, no experience didn't help.
Are there any diy mods I could sacrifice the broken lens for?
Are these zoom tv lenses any good for macro?"

Cleaning lenses just means having the right tools and not opening them up too much. Some are just not meant to be worked on and opening them means you'll never get them back together again. Those are cheaply made in the first place. The good lenses will be a cake walk to clean. You just need to make sure you put the elements back in the right order and facing the correct direction.

>zoom tv lens
Primes will be better, but if the lenses are good in the first place then yes they will be good for macro. It will depend on what working distance you can get and how that may affect putting a lens hood on. Some lenses have their rear element very recessed into the mount. Those work well if the working distance is outside that, since the recess acts as a very good lens hood. The ones with elements rather exposed can be very subject to glares/flares from bright object downrange or flash. The same happens with normal lenses. In this case it is usually about using a lens hood to stop that.

>diy lens parts
That is a whole other world of photography. You have to play it by ear as to what they will be good for. Like some will work great for macro while others will only be good for portraiture. If you have a bellows, which usually start around 90mm of extension and a lens element that is 90mm or longer focal length, you can just slap it on the front of the bellows and have a new lens to play around with and be able to focus using the bellows.

Also, you should be resizing your images, unless there's something specific that needs to be seen in the full size for part of a conversation or whatever. I think your flash is too bright so you could probably bump up the speed to 1/120 or close to that without much loss. It should still sync.

Well, this sigma shitter lens was designed to be repairable but I started from the wrong side. The mount side.
>lens hood
Alright gonna get(make) one of those.
>Bellows
I had a look yesterday. Are there any prefered models? I found some old Olympus auto extension tubes at my sources those look like a good option for a tenner but those would need to adapters and that would cause some light loss, I suppose.
>Resizing images
That's a good idea actually, thanks. I, however, basically only post my images on insta and sharpen everything as much as possible, as one does on insta. Mostly watches and try to make even the sides and stuff have interesting motives or whatever.
>Flash
Yep gonna get a proper external thingy. Honestly, I am using my phone, desk light and a flash light currently and it's sad. Tried using the camera's flash outside but the lens is too long and catches the light.

>Bellows...Are there any prefered models?
Cheap ones ($25-$30) will start to break apart after a fair amount of use. This usually happens where the slide's tightening knob is. Thus, you get what you pay for. Something around $100 should be a lot better. One thing to look out for is the distance from the bottom of the mounting ring of the front of the bellows and the rail it sits on. That distance will determine what size lens and ring flash you can use while the bellows is in shorter lengths.

>flash
Put white paper over it. Use extra layers as needed to tone it down as much as you like. You can either use a flat piece right against it or have a loop that sticks out a ways and makes the flash's point of light much larger(paper diffuser.)

>lens is too long and catches the light.
Make a paper tube from the light to where the subject will be. Like >>3474954 & >>3474957 White paper will work fine.

>Malicious code
I was getting that for the image I was uploading. It happens randomly due to an old bug in the website's parsing of image files. Changing the file's dimensions or saving in Paint fixes it. It is a false positive that has nothing to do with you.
