    Hello Friends,

    can you help me please?

    How on earth do I resize an image in PSP, in order to allow me to upload a photo into my EPZ portfolio?

    I can set the resolution at 72 pixels and set the image size to 600 or 700 wide, but I'm afraid I don't know how to figure out how to enable my image to be at the recommended
    70k - 100k file size.

    I know how to do all this in phtoshop CS, the first edition, but the software is so old it's developed a fault " cannot save for web ".

    If PSP has a similar function, I'd be very grateful if someone could help an old geezer such as I. Smile



    Many thanks, Frank.

    I have noticed that if you 'forget' to resize before uploading to the site, EPZ automatically resizes it before opening it on the gallery.Wink

    thank you so much for your reply.

    Hello Cattyal,

    thank you for your superb reply.

    As far as software is concerned, and photo enhancing in particular, I'm really useless at this sort of stuff.

    I aim to learn as much as I can - if my brain is in 'helpful' mode!Smile

    after resizing to the recommended pix size 600 pix longest side (or 1000pix longest side E2)

    press the [ F12 ] key for 'save as', then at the bottom of the popup click on the [Options] button

    on the next window which opens click on the [Run Optimiser] button.

    this will give you a 'Compressed' filesize which will change as you adjust the 'Compression Value'

    HTH

    You're welcome Frank - I figured pictures were somewhat easier than trying to explain Smile

    It'll all sink in eventually - lots of trial and error and you'll get there in the end!

    snapbandit,

    thank you for your help in this matter. I'll have to print off this thread, then it might sink in.


    Cattyal,

    once again thank you. I really DO want to understand how to enhance my images. My family believe I can sell my photos as is. I know that I can't - they need some polishing up, that is all I require.

    Trial and error is what I'm usually afraid of, but I must knuckle down, with the wonderful help of my EPZ friends.


    I've just uploaded my first photo for many, many months!


    Frank.
