NO
Use sRGB.
Have a read in the link from my sig.

sRGB is a standard, your monitor is not.

For batch re-sizing for web and e-mail there is a free download from www.faststone.org (external link)
Very fast and simple.

Convert to sRGB
To make sure that the image's color display properly on the web you will want to convert to the sRGB colorspace. (If your working colorspace is already sRGB you can skip this.)

How do you know if you can skip this step or not?

Thanks!

The information about controling the file size when compressing to a jpeg using 'save for web'! My only problem is that the largest file size it allows is 2 MB and I need to be able to get a 6 MB JPEG for an online submission. Does anyone have any thoughts?

It saves something like 1.8K, and the ICC info is useless to almost all browsers out there. AFAIK Safari is the only one that makes use of it.

First of, why leave it at 300ppi? and second other than Safari, so does the newest version of Firefox.

Not to put a damper but resizing to 800px W or H and leaving at 300ppi is not what works best for having many pic on a website.
Best resizing to a 72ppi image resolution and then to 800px is a 2 step process for maintaining a high quality fast loading image,
then simply use the "save for web" command.

If need be I will give the step by step, but I can get an excellent image at 72ppi at 800pixels (w or h) and have the same file you show at less than 1MB!!

Save as! leave quality at 12 even.

Firefox assumes sRGB if no profile is attached. So an untagged sRGB image will look good.
Safari assumes monitor profile if an image is untaged. So *any* untagged image will look off.

dpi is *100% irrelevant* for screen display. 3, 72, 96, 300 or 30,000 won't make a lick of difference for web.

I never said it was relevant other than if i wanted a web image at any size , resizing it at 300ppi would not be appropriate for file size management in general.
If you understand how Photoshop best resizes you'd know this,
but thanks anyway.

Also Firefox has to have it's color-management engine enabled (it's off).
And your mention of any image being "untagged" will look off I agree, I am all for icc profiles. From a selfish point of view I can't think of browsers that can't handle icc.
BUT if you use FF on Mac or Windows you need to enable color management via the config:filters

Might be I misunderstand what you are saying here, but I don't quite follow...

If I resize an image to 800px * 533px, it won't matter what DPI I set. a 300 dpi image will look, upload, and be identical in all other aspects on a web page as a 72 dpi image.

So, either I don't understand how Photoshop best resizes, or we don't understand each other... (I'd suspect the latter)

I know about CM being *off* by default in FF3, but since you were saying:

and second other than Safari, so does the newest version of Firefox.

I felt it safe to assume we were talking about FF3 with colormanagement enabled :rolleyes:

Also, just to make sure there are no misunderstandings, an untagged sRGB image will look good in FF3 (with CM enabled), since FF3 assumes sRGB if no profile is embedded.

You can use a light box html that enlarges it on the same page. It is great
