Resize Images Tutorial

artbiz-resize images for the webGood images are the chief asset on any art website. With the Resize Images for the Web tutorial you will learn how to optimize your images, while keep them looking great and loading fast using. We will be using Photoshop, but you can do this in Photoshop Elements as well. There is also information on how to use a free on line tool to reduce the size of your images.

Optimizing is a term used to indicate a change to a photo, reducing both visually and in file size. For an Artbiz website I ask clients to resize visually to 600 to 800 pixels, with a file size no larger than 50 to 100 kilobytes. This will create an image that fills the screen of most monitors and loads fast.

You will also learn how to embed our copyright and image information into our photos using Photoshop. By attaching copyrights, image descriptions, your name and or contact info, you are helping to protect your images where ever they go.
