Fabulous colourings and contrasts

Totally agree - great contrasting colours - great image
When I resized this image for uploading onto here, the quality went pretty bad I think, does anyone know why? Or how I can resize better in the future?

I resized on Picasa as my laptop adaptor is dead and my boyfriends laptop doesn't have Photoshop on, when I resize using Photoshop will the quality be better?

Thanks to anyone who answers!!

Hi Fran!

If you have access to PS then great, but if not there are loads of photo editing software programs about that will do it. When you save the image, make sure you set the quality to High (or as high as it can go)... BUT... as a none 'E2' member, I think you are limited to only 100MB uploads here (don't quote me)... so it's a balance between viewable size and file size.
In PS you can 'save for web' which will reduce the file size without making the actual picture too small. Select 'File' > below 'Save' and 'Save As', select 'Save for Web' your pic will open in a new screen and you'll be able to see what to do then. Lastly, when you finally close your pic in PS, you will get a little box pop up as a prompt... don't worry about this and just click 'No'.

Hope this helps
(and I haven't just made you loose the will to live!)

Hi, thanks so much that is very helpful, I now have access to Ps on my lappy as I have borrowed an adaptor so I shall get some converting done!
Thanks again!
