Re: red wedding

the only limit is on FILE size, not image size. and generally, for the art stuff, somewhere between 640 x 480 and 800 x 600 is usually pretty good, but there's no hard and fast rule on this.

Re: red wedding

I am not sure of the best procedure here. This file starts out at 288mb. So, i reduce it to the max allowable to upload ....100kb. Thats it ?

That's it...

If you're using Photoshop, File > Save for Web enables one to specify max file size via the Optimize to File Size dialog. (Use 99KB.) Works great.

Re: red wedding

Is it , perhaps, because you changed your pixel dimensions before you went to Save for Web? If your pixel dimensions were 32k before you took it into Save for Web, Optimise will not enlarge those. How could your pixel dimensions have gotten smaller? Well if you had made your image smaller using Image>Image Size that would have affected the pixel dimensions.

My suggestion: take the original image into Save for web. You can size the image there using Image Size. For a picture like yours I would use an image size of about 600 pixels in width. Check 'Bicubic' then hit the "Apply" button. Now go to the optimise tab and fill in 100 for the desire pixel dimensions.

Hope this helps.
