Re: Photos-resizing

For photoshop

First step is to resize is to change  resolution from the 300 dpi  
(dots per inch) which is good for printing, to 72  or 96 dpi, as this 
is all moniters can display.

Then set photo size to about 6" in width.

Save as a  .jpg file with attention to quality setting, usually in 
upper right portion of screen.  For most pictures a settin of 6-8 works 
well. Quality setting can be as low as 4-5 for a flower that is a self 
or bitone. The lower the setting the smaller the file.

If you have "Save for Web" feature use this, but after setting 
resolution and size.

Using these steps I can get a 6" photo down to 14-23 K, without loss of 
critical detail. Originals at about 750 K

Be sure not to overwrite original file. Save with another name, such as 
word "small" or "web" at end of name

Hope this helps
