Task 5 How to Build JPEG Files for the Web

The JPEG format works well for continuous-tone images, such as photographs. Even though the compression format creates artifacts that pixelate the image, these snags are hardly visible in photographic-quality images (although they can degrade the quality of hard-edged graphics). Photoshop has a blur function built in to the JPEG dialog box that is helpful for many images. You can smooth over many of the artifacts that surface when the quality level gets too low.

1. Open File in Photoshop

In Photoshop, select File, Open. In the Open dialog box, select the file you want to compress with the JPEG format.
