With Photoshop the trick is to use File > Save for Web... then adjust the Quality sider until you get the file size you want. Works like a charm!

Keep 'em coming.

I never used the save for web. I never felt the need, or wanted to do anything to lower resolution, even though it doesn't matter that much online.

I hope to learn something, and maybe someday, pass on what I have learned.

I prefer SFW over File > Save as (.jpg). The file size displayed in the SFW dialog is accurate, whereas in the .jpg Options dialog, the file size value is generally low by 5-6 K.

giving it a shot.....

i did a bunch of things that ended up getting an effect that i am not really too thrilled with, but i am going to go at it again tomorrow. it is late now, and i would explain all that i did, but it was just a lot of upsetting experimentation with a sub par result....but hey, my first post~! (oh yeah....talk about new to this!)....and i probably posted a picture that has a low res, so we'll see here.

another one that's well worth re-visiting! I used Trimoon's watercolor tutorial for this one. And now, I need to quit for the night and get some sleep, this stuff is waaaay to addictive!

Neb:

Considering what I had to pay for Photoshop, Painter, my replacement monitor, etc., I sure wouldn't call this hobby "free" anything! But I sure like how yours came out!

Shivan:

For a first time at bat, you done *GREAT*! (I especially like the BW background.) Don't worry about the low-res attachment. They gotta be that way in order to make it under the 100KB size limit.

Welcome aboard.

P:

Absolutely lovely. Wonderful application of Trimoon's tutorial (www.Trimoon.com - "Artistic Expressions"). The color choices really make it.

Free@LOL

I have to say i must be luckier than some then cos most of my programs i have was given to me.

Apart from the computer, printer, camera i paid for them, but the programs all free.

Great renditions here everyone, keep up the good work!!!

Danny i think your the bestest moderator on the whole forum!!!

I like yours Neb. Told you it was fun. Here's mine, and I have absolutely no idea how I got to this because I started it late at night and finished it today and I was in and out of all of my programs. i do remember starting off by inverting it. If anyone asks me specifics, I might be able to remember some.
