|With the advent of high pixel cameras I have found that quite surprising jpg "quality reductions", as viewed on my 1280x1024 screen, are not discernable - even in the finest detail. Most folk print at no more than about 7x5 inches so it is fine for that. I found it possible, by this method, to reduce file sizes considerably when that was the requirement - an easy option. |
I previously reduced "image size" in order to reduce the file size. That was OK too, but a tad more fiddling, if I kept the image larger than the screen.
To some extent I feel that with modern high pixel cameras we are getting to the point of diminishing returns (unless you need to print huge pictures).
Whatever, as I said, repost on this because there will be all sorts of opinion and ideas on the subject. New posts usually attract more input which will be more focussed with a different title.
Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
