Re: photo looses quality pls help

Hi Helen, it does not matter if you are a PS expert or a brand new user, the subject of Color Management is probably one of the most fundamental and important concepts you should learn before working on any image files. You need to be especially careful when your working color space in PS is different from the color space of the file that you are opening. There is an very good tutorial on color management at the link below. Just scroll down and select the one for the version of PS that you have.
Regards, Murray

Re: photo looses quality pls help

I agree totally with what everyone else has stated. I have one thing to add that I have tried on my own work. Sometimes it helps, other times it doesn't. With a final image ready to be made into a jpg I use photoshops ability to downsize the image as I see it in photoshop, like zoom in or out can do. After it is the size I want to final image to be I take a screen shot of it. Then I can open the screenshot to see what it looks like. Most of the time it is fine. But you need to look at the "Image size in -photoshop to be certain that it is the correct dpi, also making sure that you set the color space to that sRGB with a lot of numbers after it. I cannot recall the exact sequence right now. I hope this helps some.
