Well, there's no single answer or article for that.

All jpegs must be saved for a specific purpose.  It might be printing, or web posting, or selling to a client, or archiving, or sending to a graphic designer, or whatever.

So, can you tell me the purpose for which you are saving your jpegs today?

Sorry, I need more information so I can help you properly.

When you say "printing", can you tell me your process?  Are you sending files directly to the lab yourself?

Yes, this is correct.

To confirm, you don't include a resolution when you crop?

Terrific.

So, when you're saving those files for the clients, I recommend choosing Level 10 quality (on the 0-12 scale).

that's what I thought.. but did you have a article I can share with my friend? she thinks the file has to show a higher number of megabytes for it to be good.
