What I am wanting to do, on my web page.
Is have a smaller photo, and then being able to click the photo and another page open up with a full size photo on it.
I want to be able to put 8-10 "see-able" thumbnails on a page at once
What would that size be?

Well if you keep in mind that most users only have 1024 x 768 screens then you are limited to about 200 pixels or so to still have some space around the thumbnails. On my Pbase account (link in my sig) they use 160 as the max. On my 1024 x 768 screen at work that shows 3 rows of 3 thumbnails. I could extend that to 4 rows of 3 but I haven't just yet.

Hi Scottes. I use PS Elements 2 and tried following your save-for-web resizing instructions but couldn't get it to work. A few of the menu headings are different in E 2 though. For instance, after moving the quality slider to get the photo below 100K, it offers "OK", Cancel, or Help, so I clicked "OK", assuming it was the same command as your "save", correct?

Then I renamed the file (which was now [SUPposedly] downsized to 97K and 800X600) and clicked "save", but when I then try to attach that pic. to a post I get the msg. "Your file of 552.2 KB exceeds the forum's limit of 100KB."

Any suggestions as to what I'm doing wrong? I'm not very techy, so please explain in layman's terms if possible. Thank you.

I would have to assume that "OK" would be the same as the "Save" button. Does it appear to save the image at this point? After clicking "OK" do you still have a version of the image on your screen? If so, do you save that? (If so, use yet another new file name...)

As to the file being 552KB, something seems seriously wrong. But as a very wild guess, I'm thinking that you saved a 97KB version and then somehow saved a "regular" JPG version and over-wrote that 97KB version with the 552KB version. ???

Maybe someone with PS Elements 2 can help? Anyone?

Is that your response to my post?

Yes, it is. And Scott is correct with his definition of a 100% crop. :)

Here's what the equivalent PSE 2 functions are:

Resize The Image
Use Image > Resize -> Image Size.

Sharpen The Image
The tools in both PS and PSE are very similar. Use whatever suits you.

Convert to sRGB
PSE 2 does not give you the ability to convert color spaces on the fly. You will need to be in the sRGB color space before you start editing. To do this, go into Color Settings and select Limited color management - optimized for Web graphics.

Preview the Color Changes
Not applicable

The Save For Web Dialog
PSE 2 uses OK instead of Save.
You automatically get "2-up" with PSE 2.

Compare The Changes

Save The New Image
Click on OK, instead of Save.

Post a link to an image:

Try Photobucket, or another free site.
1/ Upload the pics.

2/ View the 'full size" pic. If there's a (+) in your mouse pointer, click the image again so it's at full size. (Max 1024 pixels on either side.)

3/ Rt-click on it & select "Copy Image Location. Come back to your thread, click on the yellow icon at the top of the "Post New Thread" box, just to the left of the Quote Box, & paste the link into the dialog box. You'll get something like this:

IMAGE NOT FOUND
IMAGE IS A REDIRECT OR MISSING!
Content warning: NOT AN IMAGE


If you're linking to more than one image, hit <Return> once to put some space between the images:
IMAGE NOT FOUND
IMAGE IS A REDIRECT OR MISSING!
Content warning: NOT AN IMAGE


IMAGE NOT FOUND
IMAGE IS A REDIRECT OR MISSING!
Content warning: NOT AN IMAGE


Thats it. Except for Flickr.

Flickr users:

It seems that some people like to let the site do the sizing of their images, and violate the forum rules by choosing the wrong size to upload.

DPI/PPI doesn't matter for web viewing, only for printing. Let's say for demonstration purposes that your image is 800x533 pixels. This image at 72 or 300 DPI/PPI will still be 800 pixels wide when viewing the image on your screen. But if printed, now the image will change. 800x533 @72 dpi will be 11.11 x 7.4 inches. That same image at 300 dpi would be only 2.67 x 1.78 inches.

So i have a newbie questoin about this.... If you are trying to protect your images, and the DPI resolution does not matter for web, why not set the DPI to like 400 or more? This way if they try to print the photos it will not work out for them...... do i have this wrong? What is the drawback?

Have a read of the printing and enlargement FAQ in my sig. In short dpi is usually only important to commercial printers, ppi is what photographers care about. PPI is irrelevant for images on the web, set it to 1 or 1 million, it makes no difference. It's the number of pixels that matters.

Great tutorial! Doing this strips the picture of the exif data, how can I re-attach the data? Or not lose it in the first place? Thx in advance

Use Save As.
Save For Web tries to make the file as small as possible.

http://bluefive.pair.c​om/pixresizer.htm (external link) All that bother to resize for the web is a pain. For ease of use, all I use is this little freebie application. Works like a charm for what I'm sure most need for posting web images. Only thing is that my copy has damaged help files. Didn't re-download as it's so obvious in the workflow what to do. Might be of some help to someone.....

Could I just check, When Im editing my images, should I always make sure that proof color is on and set to monitor settings? I seem to be losing color whenever I upload my pictures
