What's the best size for images on G1? I just uploaded a few that I had to immediately delete because they were compressed so badly the images looked horrible. They were only 85K, so maybe it was the image size that triggered the compression. All I know is they looked horrible.

Thanks!

Sindy,

I confess I haven't gotten a full grasp of this yet as my images look so much better on my computer than when posted here. I put out a similar question and only got a couple of responses but one helped a lot (Thanks again photomart).

Make sure you are posting an image with an sRGB profile (use PS Convert function) and doing a "Save for Web".

Hope this helps since we'd love to see more of your images!

Cheers,
LSC

Sindy,

I don't think I've ever seen anyone say at what point the re-sizing begins, but I am reasonably sure that the portfolio software is resizing things to 600 pixels on the largest side. I just uploaded an image that's 800 x 533 and it did a fairly good job downsizing the image (not a whole lot of artifacts in the image) - it's a 93KB image, so I suspect that the filesize wasn't your problem, either.

Here's the link if you wanna take a look at the test image:
