Every time after i edited the raw file and Save For Web, the screen below takes awhile to finish loading. Although i have selected 50% in the circled areas but the selected value won't persist the next time i save for web again. Is there a way to configure Photoshop to save a smaller image size automatically each time i do Save For Web?

Save to Web is intended for small images - it will even warn you when you use a large image..

shrink the image in PS first

Um, yea, you should be re-sizing it before you get to that point.

I dont resize before I get there. I save what ever I need from that screen, only takes a couple of seconds to load with a 5D II raw image.

Re-sizing before allows you to adjust for loss of sharpening before export... and there is definitely a loss of sharpening from a full sized 21mp image down to web-ready size. ;)

Yup, if you want full sized files just use "Save As" and save the jpg.

Save for Web as has been said is intended for smaller images - most images on the web will be 1024 or less and <250K - just think POTN guidelines.

Yeah, my computer is not the fastest. It takes awhile to load up the preview (7D raw). I'll resize it before Save For Web. Thanks guys!

Yes there is. Just create an action. Resize the image first then use save for web. If you don't want to stop at the resize point use File - Automate - Fit Image. If all your images are 800 on the long side for both vertical and horizontal orientation the enter 800 in both places.

I ignore the warning - I consistently use it as my final output step.

Usually saving pictures in the size of 1200 - 1600 wide. Its not optimized for it, but it works just fine. If you have to resharpen after resizing, you didn't do enough/didn't do it right.

No real lag on a Macbook pro w/8GB and 7D files.

Resize to max say 1200 pixels on the longest side before you save for web. Anything bigger use save as.

Say what?! :lol: What about saving down to around 800px for, say, a blog... Or 720ish for Facebook? Anything changing that drastically definitely needs some additional unsharp to reflect what the final will truly look like. ;)

If you have to resharpen after resizing, you didn't do enough/didn't do it right.

If you don't have to resharpen after resizing, you did it too much and down-rezzing is taking the excess off (with a loss of quality). Or your taste runs to less than optimally sharpened images.

Facebook rapes all images anyway. Who blogs anymore?
