Reduction for Facebook


Recommended Posts

Damien,  

I read in one of your articles you say not to use Image -> Image Size to reduce a picture size, but to use the crop tool.

Given my camera creates images at 5472 x 3648 pixels - to reduce to 960 pixels wide, do you just use the crop tool with

Width set to 960 and the height and resolution left blank?  I'm finding using Image -> Image size degrades the quality a bit.

Thanks,

Andy

Yep, definitely the easiest way.

However ...

... this shouldn't be.  Can you describe what you're seeing?

User error on my part.  I'm so used to hitting Ctrl-0 to resize the image, I hadn't twigged that after making it 960px wide, Ctrl-0 is making it bigger than 100% on my 24" monitor.  

Just tried both ways and at 100% they are identical.  I'll get used to hitting Ctrl-1 (100% zoom) instead.

(also, whilst I'm here, these two pages aren't showing for me - tried two computers and same on both, so they may have gone walkabout https://www.damiensymonds.net/art_tscs2.html and https://www.damiensymonds.net/art_tscs000.html )

Thanks as always,

Andy
