p.1 #1 · Re sizing image for this site in CS6


I am trying to start and put some images on the this site but I am having major problems. I am new to this so please be patient with me. I have my images on the desk top in high res j peg and I drop a image into CS6 go to image size and change the pixels to 640 across the longest length and press ok. I then save the image to the desk top and then open up FM start a new tread write in the subject and some text upload the image and it keeps telling me image is too big it has to be 750 KB max. If I then go back into CS6 and resize it again then try and upload it to the site the image comes out at 240 KB and it is small and and looks to put it quiet blunt crap. As you can see I haven't got a clue what I am doing please can you help me. [KISS] Keep It Simple.

If you want a free program that is "quick and dirty" try Irfanview. The learning curve is about 2 minutes and 22 seconds

Three clicks are you have a re-size!

You're fine with resize @ CS6 for longest length of 640 (assuming for the WA/MA), although you can post larger also (just not for the WA/MA). Just watch for file size in your jpeg options screen. If it is over 600KB (750KB now ), I simply lower the quality from 12 to 11, or sometimes I need to go to 10 to get it below 600KB ... no need to resize smaller, just use a bit of jpeg compression.

I have done what you suggested in CS6. Do you un tick any of the boxes in the image diolque box when you change the top line to 640.The bit that is doing my head in is when I Go to choose the image in the message box it comes up to say that it is only 235 kb why. Also the image looks small on the site. I have just put a image on the motor section.

Images look fine.

You can post larger than 640px if you like, just so long as your file size remains under the threshold (jpg compression as needed). I typically try to keep my vertical around 800px or so (+/-), some will post larger/smaller. You'll get a feel for what works for viewing / etiquette as you post in different forums.

Bring on the pics.

To be sure, in 'image size' dialog box, set to 72 dpi, then make sure 'resample image' is checked, then select one dimension for your image. Then use Save for Web and pick a quality level usually between 60 and 80 and save it. Done.

Jeffrey, Don't want to jump down your throat but why on earth are you suggesting anybody worry about ppi when saving for web? and why 72ppi when in this day and age monitors are closer to 100ppi ? Just trying to understand, people who should know better cling to this 15 year old standard when it is meaningless.

Doug, I thought monitors (at least using a Mac) was still 72 dpi? Maybe I'm not up to date and don't know it? Still, doing that gives the person a 'general' idea of what the viewable size will be. Even thought we know it is the actual pixel dimension that creates the displayed size, in PS it will look smaller at a higher dpi.

p.1 #11 · Re sizing image for this site in CS6


The 27" Apple monitors have the lowest ppi being 109ppi other brand monitors the worst about 90ppi and go up from there, my Dell U2711 is the same as the Apple monitor 109ppi for instance. So 72ppi is at least 35% out of wack in today's world.

I agree you can get a idea of screen size specifying a ppi a more modern # would be more helpful but its hard to break old habits. I believe most people converting for web just want to post a reasonable download size and as large as possible while conforming to the guidelines and don't particularly care about the on screen measurement (I by no means know if I'm right with this assumption though).

Charles, as a person struggling with jpg issues and ppi being largely irrelevant do you find the size in inches during conversion necessary or helpfull?

...Show more When I am doing normal stuff with CS6 I like to use inches and I find it helpful. As from now I think I am going to make my images 1000ppi on the long side and 72dpi. These sizes are being use by some one how has replied to my question.

Not that it matters in any grand way but ppi is not really meaningless outside of an approximation of on screen real estate. 72 ppi being at least 30% larger than what is correct.

This is a picture at 1ppi





the same at 300000ppi






You don't really have to worry about it.

Guess its really a just a pet peeve of mine, ppi being irrelevant on the web can we at least use a figure that has some relevance today 1000 pixels on the wide side @ 100ppi

Sorry if I was an ass-hat.

I've seen a few web pages which consider the embedded PPI value - tho usually custom coded commercial sites. If that top image were displayed using that code it might cause a browser crash or display plug-in - it would be massive whatever happened! The bottom one I guess would render as a single pixel.

My internet EXIF viewer for example frags up on that 30,000 PPI one:




Notice the one-pixel image in the preview display of the left panel.


Just lucky that the code for displaying it here and in most forums I guess, looks something like this:

    <img onload="if (this.naturalWidth === undefined) { var img = new Image(); img.src = this.src; naturalWidth = img.width; naturalHeight = img.height; } ris(this,src,naturalWidth,naturalHeight); width=naturalWidth; height=naturalHeight;" width="800" height="532" border="0" alt="This image is copyrighted by the owner" src="http://dougieville.us/ppi/300000.jpg" style="cursor: default; ">
