Re: November 17 Challenge--Autumnal & Seasonal Mists

The max size for a jpeg is 500kb. Seems small but works OK for what we are about.

I use the "Windows Resizer for Windows", and I need to use the medium size to get on the gallery. I know Lightroom will resize, as many editing progs...........

There have been several threads here a few months ago if you need guidance

Re: November 17 Challenge--Autumnal & Seasonal Mists

After processing the RAW file, and saving the photo at Max quality in jpeg, (usually about 7 or 8 Megabytes) I then resize them for the web. If you load up the originals in Flickr, they take an age top display, so all my web stuff in less than 500kb. On the screen its difficult to see any significant difference unless you pixel peep,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Have to say its been an exceptional quality month. I, certainly will find it difficult to choose No 1.............

Only one vote please. Offenders will be asked to remove one of their votes within a day or so. If not both votes will be discounted..............
