    Scanning for Gallery

    I don't know if this is the correct forum for asking this question but here goes anyway.

    I am having trouble getting my images I have uploaded to galleries to look sharp. I know the problem isn't my scan as the image looks very noticeably more sharp on my monitor, something happens to my scans after they have been uploaded. My technique is to downsize my original TIFFs in Photoshop to longest side 8inches at 72dpi monitor resolution. The image is the saved as a JPEG at a quality level of 12. The file size is typically 200 to 400K.
    I am guessing that some additional compression is taking place after the image has been uploaded and this is giving my photos the fuzzys.
    Any suggestions apreciated.

    Thanks

    Robert

    You need to dump 72dpi I bet.

    What I do is this. I resize in PIXELS with 550 being my longest side and keep the proportion. By dealing with pixels, I dictate the quality on the viewing monitor. I run my monitor at 1025x768. So 550 pixels is pretty good. Sometimes I run a bit smaller. Usually if I can't remember how many pixels APUG likes. Just resize in pixels (If you don't know how, I can tell ya....really easy), and keep the DPI untouched. I scan at 3200dpi so I know it isn't a problem.

    I use the "Save for Web" feature in PS, set image size to about 650 - 700 pixels for the largest dimension. Have "constrain proportions" checked off and set to jpeg max. Your file size will be 200-300K.

    I hope this helps,

    John

    Glad to help John. You can get a nice large image for display without scrolling and adjust the JPG quality to get the file size right.
