Thanks for this Dave but I think I got it sorted out in Corel....instead of saving, I have to "post it to the web" which give me the compression option.

Thanks for all the kind advice everyone!! Very Happy

It's similar in Elements Joan, you can resize the picture in the Editor then "Save for Web" and you then get the option to adjust the file size whilst retaining the same picture size. Most sites seem to want a file size of either below 100K or a few under 150k.

<< resize to 800 on the longest size and set your resolution to 72 >>

Isn't the resolution setting irrelevant in this instance, Sue?

Bigger pic much better, btw, Joan Smile

I have never bothered with setting the resolution in Elements. I first open the image in the RAW Converter, then into the Editor where I crop, then re-size to 800 pixels for the longest dimension, then do any manipulations required and finally sharpen. Then I save for the web and simply alter the file size to suit the sites requirements, usually 100k or 150k.

This brought the file size down from 536k to 183k with just a slight loss of clarity Dave. I am so glad I eventually worked out how to do it. Smile

Thanks Paul...it does look better now but still not quite as sharp as it is on my screen at home. Thanks for the comment.

Did you sharpen it after re-sizing Joan or before? It is always best to first crop if needed, re-size and then after any further manipulations do a final sharpening just before saving for the web and adjusting file size.

If I do sharpen an image I usually do it first Dave. I will change it to last from now on. Thanks for the hint. Smile

Welcome Joan! Very Happy
Very nice photos. Lovely creature. Where is Mike? I think he would be pleased. Cool
We have two species here, Tarentola mauritanica (zidni (wall) macaklin) and Hemidactylus turcicus (kućni (house) macaklin). Our word for geckos is macaklin.
By the way, what cat is on your avatar? Cheetah? Very Happy

Not really. 72dpi is the standard for web publishing and if someone "borrows" your image, the print out will not be that great.

Thanks for the welcome Nicola. I love your photographs, they are fantastic. It is a leopard which I am using in my avatar. They are beautiful creatures.

Thanks for help with this re-sizing problem Sue. I have had people "borrowing" my pics....found them posted on a site in India of all places.

I have found my images all over the internet, but the best one yet was when I recieved an email with one of my images as the "stationary". Seems somone made an email stationary of one of my images and it went around the world for a while I suppose and eventually ended up in my mailbox Laughing

I dont see how someone can take an image and use it when it does not belong to them Shocked There is just no accounting for what people will do now days!!
