(In PhotoShop)

Image>Image Size>

Make the long size ~800

72 dpi

constrain proportions

resize bicubic

Click OK

then File>Save As...

(.jpg, quality 6 or more)

<new filename> (as you don't want to overwrite the original…)


Hope this helps…
- Wil

Use the instructions Wil gave you, except instead of "Save as ..." Look for the "save for web..." command. This will let you look at the effect of differing compression so you can decide what is good enough for what you are doing.

One major difference in the output of the "Save for web.." is that the EXIF data is stripped from the image. That reduces the file size by something like 50k (major advantage for those of us on dial-up), but also means that folks cannot get the shooting info (f/stop, shutter speed, ISO, ...). If having that info attached is important, use the "Save as...".

Whenever I resize in photoshop elements, I do as Wil does. You are allowed max of 1024 for your long side, and the file size, determined by the quality slider should be set at or below 253.9 KB.
