Reduce file size from 80MB to 5MB - jpg


Recommended Posts

I'm sorry, I can't hang around any longer.  I have to dash to get the kids.

I'm asking for the 100% crop because I want to be sure you've removed all the noise.   Noise is a HUGE factor in file size: https://www.damiensymonds.net/2015/08/about-jpeg-file-size.html

As long as it's clean, then all you need to do is choose a low enough quality level for the save, so that it's below 5MB.  It shouldn't be any trouble at all.

Just a follow up question  - you are right 12 is ridiculous...how should i be saving these then in photoshop.  I just started guessing on the pixel lengths for the above picture.  Is there a a place to look for what standard sizes are for each size?

 

I am off to bed but will check back in tomorrow morning.

I sell digital images to clients.  The above client just happened to be making a graduation card on Minted.com.  How I can I be saving smaller files with still great quality for my clients.

 

Would I do it in bridge through the “image processor” or in photo shop?

The digital files that you're selling shouldn't be over 5MB anyway.  What quality level did you end up choosing, to get it under that mark?

Whichever suits your workflow.  They're the same in terms of quality.
