Trying to create a portfolio here, but cannot shrink my photos to fit under the 150k limit without having them appear as postage stamp size! What gives?

Well the system is new and sometimes a bit hard to navigate but it is getting better. The flip side is that there are a lot of features.

If you look at my recent response to BigTimeBiginner 's shots from this weekend, you will see that my response displayed a fairly large image.

I just checked and that image is 137k. All I did was use PhotoShop's "save for the web" button and stipulated the maximum pixel dimension as about 1024 while preserving the same ratio and saved it to a folder to be uploaded. (I imagine any other photo processing software could do the same.)

Then on Glamour1 I clicked on my portfolio and uploaded it and filled in a few details. At that point a thumbnail appears in my portfolio and on the recently uploaded set of images.

If I wanted to paste it into a response such as this I'd look on the right side of the reply box for a box entitled "my pics" and click on open. Then I'd find the image I want but BEFORE CLICKING ON THE IMAGE look to the options at the top of the photos and select something that is like "original image" (rather than thumbnail) and the full size image should be added to your reply and probably any other function.

Hope this helps. Someone recently told me how to do this so I'm now passing it along.

Steve

Ok, previously if you were a "registered" (free) member you were only allowed 150K file size, largest side 1000 x 1000 pixels max. Lifetimer's had up to 250K.

What I've done is changed registered users to 200K and Lifetimers to 300K and all sides 1024 max in pixels.

Now, with that said, if your images are larger than 125K you're just doing it all wrong and don't understand the web and Photoshop.

The main reason there is a "save for web" is for the "WEB." Why? When you do a save for web, you get the image tagged with the sRGB color profile tag--but what saves in file size is the following:

1. EXIF (metadata, camera info) is stripped--don't need it on the web.
2. No desktop thumbnail preview is generated.
3. You're using a 216 color-pallet as "cross-platform" web browsers use this function. R x B x G (216x216x216= 10.07 million color combinations)

If you do a save, save as jpg, then you get your working color profile (if you don't know what that is or don't practice color management, then chances are by default it's sRGB.)

What you also get is this:

1. Exif data which takes up file space.
2. Desktop thumbnail preview(s) which take up file space.
3. A 256 color pallet. R x G x B (256 x 256 x 256 = 16.77 million colors (ring a bell).

And you also get a file (jpg) usually about three to four times larger than "save for web" jpg. When you save for web at 70% and "save as" jpg, they are the same except for color pallet, EXIF data, and thumbnail previews and sometimes color profiles--the main result in the end is file sizes!

Now, with that said, your images should be no larger than 600 pixels on their longest side--most people don't like to scroll--besides, the larger the image, the higher the chance it gets stolen for other uses. I make most all my images no larger than 500-600 pixels on their largest side, save for web, and save around 45-75 percent jpg quality and at 72 ppi (not dpi).

I guarantee you , when you practice the save for web (45-75 compression), no larger than 600 pixels as 72 ppi, your files on average will be 45-85K, rarely, and I mean rarelly 100K or higher. Remember, not everyone has broadband....and the larger the image, the more bandwidth "hosts" like G1 and others pay--and when members are "free" we limit you to smaller limits--though at 200K you should be able to post images with the save for web parameters even at 1024 pixels on the longest side with no problems.

Thanks, hope that helps, wishing you the best, rg sends!

Resize the images to be 4x6 @ 72dpi and save for web (which takes out the exif information). That should leave you with 35-46kb per file. On the save for web dialog, click the arrow at the top right corner and select "uncompensated colors" to keep your colors the way you want them.
