Optimizing Photos for Web Presentation

Posted By Ian Plant
(© Ian Plant) I’ve just released Series Two of my Creative Digital Processing video tutorials. I’ve also released a new free video tutorial called “Optimizing Photos for Web Presentation,” which discusses techniques for resizing, sharpening, and color optimizing photos for display on the web. I’ve embedded a low-res version of this video here; you can download the high-res version from my website, along with my other video tutorials. I hope you find this free tutorial helpful!

    You can skip the step where you change the resolution from 300 to 72 PPI. There’s no difference between an image that is 750×549 pixels @ 72 ppi vs 300 ppi.

    Thanks Marcus, this is true – for me it is just a holdover from the days when web pundits used to recommend 72 dpi as the web standard. You are correct, either way gets you to the same place.
