Resizing in CS5

Running CS5.

I have a jpeg file of 1,394mb and I want to upload it here. However if I try to save the file,as "file save as",the file size goes down to about 385kb with the quality as medium. The save option is greyed out and therfore not selectable.


In order to upload the the picture needs to be 80 x 80 pixels

can someone explaine as how I can achieve this from the original
thanks

Re: Resizing in CS5

Create a smaller copy of the image via the Image - Image Size function, adjust the size to how big you want it to be then select the best Bicubic method

Then do a Files Save as to a new name and then you should have a file you can upload. You may have to play around to get the size to be what you want.

Never ever do a File Save without ensuring you change the file name - otherwise you may lose your master file (most likely will )

Re: Resizing in CS5

Phil - here's a quick 1 min screencast I did to show you how to do this. Please note that you DO NOT want your image to 80*80px - this is way too small!!

Hope this helps... ps: sorry about the fan noise towards the end of the video, I didn't use my external X1 mic and used the built in mic so it picked up the fan coming on!!

Re: Resizing in CS5

John - you really are a diamond geezer. You didn't have to go to this trouble,so many,many thanks for that.

Now that I have done that how do I uplift them on to the forum - there used to be sticky on there but it seems to have disappeared

Thanks again
Phil
