Saving For Web

After finishing your master retouch and you want to showcase the image on the web, what is the best/correct process to save it out as a JPG to make sure that it looks consistent across platforms?

It's all about monitor a proper calibration.
But considering everyone has good, calibrated screen all you need to do is save for web and check the box "convert to sRGB" plus assign profile. Or you can manually convert to sRGB and save as with "assign profile sRGB..." checked
If you want you can also avoid tweaking your image too bright but this will affect to the quality.

I think that's it.

You will also note, that images which are scaled down heavily still need some sharpening because they are often blured too much with bicubic interpolators while scaling down by the exporters in many cases.

Ok, check the size of the photo in facebook after you upload it and compare it to the photo before upload. Facebook resizes photos to 604x604 and compresses in JPEG A LOT locally, and then uploads (preparing photos for upload...).

If you have a 1000x1000 image that needs to be emailed, unless you bring the jpeg quality down to say 60-80, you are not compressing it and will have a file larger than necessary. Jpeg is what it is for, it's a web format and it should produce small files. For example, when attaching images in this website, you need to make them 100k, and in that case, 100% jpeg quality will not get you there.

When you use the save for web command, make sure you have a clear idea of what the image is going to be used for and use the setting accordingly.

Re: Saving For Web

For Facebook, I'll resize so that the width is 604 or height is 604 depending on whichever is longer, but I keep the JPEG quality 100. I can understand if I'm uploading on this forum, or when sending email attachment when there's a 100kb limit, but for Facebook they don't give you one. The only limit they place is the 604 maximum length, in which if you pass they will resize it themselves (and since their resizing algorithim is pretty shitty, it ends up looking pretty bad).

So I understand if you want smaller file sizes, but I've never had to go through that.

No man, facebook will compress the photo, change its name, delete all exif....it will compress no matter what file you give it. It's a good thing to resize it yourself so that you can use bicubic sharper and all that, but nothing will prevent them from compressing more, you can give them a 604x604 1000Kb image, but after upload it will not weigh more than 60Kb or so.
