View Full Version : Photoshop Help!

Aug 18th, 2006, 07:02 PM
Ok so I know there are some Photoshop geniuses out there, and I need some help. :angel:

How do you reduce the size of an image so that it meets the 11.7 KB requirement? :o

I can make some nice avatars, but they all are around 38 KB. :tape:

Help please! :help:

file> save for web> and then you can lower it to 60%

I am a photoshop guru ;)

what size is it going into the document (100%, 50% 25%)
- there a number of ways you can reduce the file size:
crop it, flatten it, reduce the resolution, reduce the image size.

are you outputting it to anything fancy?
he just wants an avatar...

save for web @60% is fine. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thanks Wigglytuff, but it's still not small enough. :(

I went all the way down to 1% and it still wasn't enough. :mad:

It's stuck at 12 KB. :fiery:

Why can everyone do this, but me? :bigcry:

Yay finally! :D

I got it! :banana:

I had it set as .gif and once I switched it to .jpeg it worked! :woohoo:

you need 2 resize it to 140 pixels tall and no more. THEN save to web at 60% it should be about 9kb well under the 11.7kb size limit.
