I am sure this has been answered here before but I am unable to find the thread. If I am starting with a 2875 X 1971 RGB/8 JPEG image, what is the best way to make this image ready to be presented on the web? I currently do have a consistent way of doing this; therefore I do not get consistent results. When I use the “save for web” function, my image is still pretty big. If I shrink the image down before using “save for web” it seems as though I loose some of the sharpness. I am using Photoshop Elements 3.0. A step-by-step, this is how to do it would be most appreciated. Thank you in advance for your help.

Most of us use CS3 -- and those of us on Elements are likely vers 4,5 or 6. Does version 3 allow you to change the size in Save for Web? Here is an Elements 3.0 tutorial you might find useful: http://www.photoshopsupport.com/elem...-tutorial.html

As for sharpening, using Bicubic Sharper on the resize is usually sufficient -- but sharpness is a whole topic unto itself.

go to image size and change your resolution to 300, then pixel dimension to 800 in the width.
then go to edit convert to profile and choose srgb.
now save for web, and adjust for 600kb or less.

When saving for web you would never want to change the resolution to 300. A high quality JPG image using save for web will almost always be less than 100k in size. You should have the color mode set to sRGB and usually that is the best default color space for the camera (as well) if you do mostly web output. Elements 3 is an antique and really needs to be upgraded. Naturally, if you shoot RAW you can change your color space at anytime in the RAW converter (if for example you later need Adobe RGB, etc). Also keep in mind that any image with a height larger than 600 pixels will not be fully viewable without scrolling on the "average" browser (1024 x 768). G1 will resize the "large" preview image to 600 pixels high for portrait mode.


Here is a typical look at the Save for Web Interface:



This example would produce a file size of 50 to 60 K on average.

Cheers,
rfs
