Part 11. Preparing to Publish > Optimizing a Picture for the Web

Optimizing a Picture for the Web

Preparing an image for the Web involves converting its file type to JPEG, GIF, or PNG; restricting its colors to 256; reducing its size to a few inches wide; and limiting its resolution to 72 pixels/inch.

With your finished picture in the active image area, choose File, Save for Web.

In the Preset area, choose a picture format and quality, such as JPEG Medium.

Optionally, check the Progressive box.

Click OK.

NOTE

Control File Size

You can use the Image, Resize, Image Size command to size the image to the computer screen (typically, 2-4 inches wide), with resolution of 72 pixels/inch.


Click Save.
