  • File size too big?

    I've been trying to post new entries but three or four times now I get a message that the file is too big.
    According to the Image Size reading on my Photoshop 6.0.
    the one I just tried to upload said it was 1.71kb. Others that didn't go through were all under the 200kb limit.
    Do you think I'm getting faulty readings from my program...or am I mistaken to think Image Size and File Size are the same?

    right click on the actual file and go to properties...see what it says for file size compared to what Photoshop says.

      OK, I'll do that. Hopefully I'll have some new pictures up today...Thanks, Greg

          Well, here's the thing - I tried that and can't get a Properties reading when the file is still in Photoshop.
          We do that to images displayed on the web all the time, but while it's still open I can't find where "Properties" resides.
          Any clues?

          Aint insomnia wonderful?

            oops ...I meant within Windows (or Mac) go find the actual file icon and right click.

              Yes. Went there, did that.
              Turns out it was 247kb.
              Tried to opitimize within Photoshop - $!##* - so went over to Net Mechanic and used the Gif Bot.
              The result is now up in Retouching Challenge # 22 - Ken's Wife Tammi.
              Thanks Greg for pointing me in the right direction.

                Now we just need to find out why Photoshop was displaying it wrong!

                  Recently, I tried to upload pictures to Snapfish (an online photo printing service) and got the message that the file sizes of all the pictures was too small. I know this is a very basic concept to understand when working with photos but I'm clueless. I'm hoping there's no formula to this. I'm hoping...

                  Attachment file size increased for Patrons
                  by Doug Nelson
                  As an additional "thank you" for the Patrons that pay our server fees, I've increased your file attachment maximum size to 1MB.

                  See the attached 3216x2844 doodle for an idea of the difference this makes....

                  What is the true image size?
                  by sirrduke2010
                  I recently downloaded a photo to some software to shrink the photo which worked. The program was "Imagewell." After editing the picture to 106 kb in size I transfered the photo to Aperture and iphoto. Both programs agree with the size of Image well. I then transferred the image to photoshop...

                  How to reduce PS file size (old trick)?
                  by Lucile Davis
                  Can anyone remember the old PhotoShop 6 (undocumented) trick to reduce file size? It was something very quick, easy, clever, and simple like saving the file with a different name, creating a new filename, and reopening it. (But, of course, that is not it.) Suddenly, the overgrown file would be rid...
