PSD jpegs

Hi,

I am using PSD 5.0 and I open a psd file that is 7.4 mb.

I go to save it as a jpg max res (12) etc and it is 272 k. I have also exported from pixelmator and the same thing. It is a larger picture.

The client is trying to put it on his fb fan page and it keeps coming in very small.

any hints of what i am doing wrong and what I can do to correct it?

thanks

Julie

Is the resolution something other than 72. Like 300 perhaps?

The over-simplified version: For the sake of argument web images are displayed at 72ppi (don’t ask about 96ppi). By using a higher rez all you’re accomplishing is sucking up bandwidth and potentially slowing load times.

So open the image in your editor and under “Image Size” (or similar) change the resolution setting to 72 pixels/in. Now, if you want to maintain the same dimensions as the original then deselect “Resample Image” and hit OK. But if you want to scale the image down to roughly 1/4 the original size, e.g., going from 300ppi down to 72ppi, then select “Resample Image” then hit OK.

Without going too much into the details, by setting to 300ppi, all you
are doing is changing a header that tells applications that care
about ppi
how to display the image. You’re not actually altering the
pixels themselves.

The key point to remember when dealing about the Web is that browsers
DON’T CARE about ppi. At all. You send any browser a 300ppi image that
is 600px wide and next to it a 72ppi image that is 600px wide and they
will appear identical in every way. Pixel == Pixel.

Freeway, on the other hand, is a DTP application, and it does care
very much about ppi. If you have a 900ppi scan of a 35mm slide, you
have an approximately 1276px wide image. That means it can be about 17
inches wide on a browser without any loss of quality at all.

So if you bring that scan into a normal graphic box in Freeway, you
will initially see a very tiny (but high quality) image. If you scale
and resample that image in Freeway, you will see that you can make it
ridiculously large without any loss of quality. At no point, however,
is Freeway going to output a 900ppi image and make it a part of your
site. Instead, it will resample the original and make a 72ppi version
of it at whatever design dimensions you choose in your layout.

I’m not sure which image you are having the issue with, all of the
five images on this page appear to be high resolution, and they
enlarge when I click on them. Is there another image I should be seeing?

He wants to be able to have the thumbnail bigger to have on the page- I am guessing for the profile picture and unsure if he wants to have it as the page picture…

Here’s what I see when I go to the URL you sent me:

It’s not at all clear to me what you expect to see larger or smaller.
The thumbnails are being resized by Facebook, so it’s nothing you can
control or change. This is one of my many beefs with Facebook as a
“web” platform. It’s on the Web, but it is definitely not the Web.

I think you are stuck with the size thumbs that facebook provides, not sure just always seemed that way to me. If you want a better quality make the thumbs fit those dimensions.

Are you using checking ignore resolution, and/or passthrough - That drove me crazy (in the finder after you select the image to use and before you enter/return)

Thank you to all.

He finally showed me what he was trying to do, and basically I needed to add a border so that the logo fits in a bigger box and looks bigger.

ugh.

Frank, I am not using either.

Walter - I totally agree with you.

Try hitting Apple-Option-Shift-F, then double-click the picture and choose ‘Resample’.
