Default photo question (lol, attention Razzo)

I was so excited when I got my new phone. I got an HTC1 m9. The camera in it is posed to be insane, something like 12 mp or better. I was hoping to be able to post pics of my fish half as nice as razzos. I went to my prettiest fish and took a nice picture of it. But here's my problem, when I tried uploading the picture it kicked back saying the file was too large. OK better picture, bigger file.... Makes sense but how to I post a high quality picture?

OK, I just double checked. It has a 20 mp camera.

After you load them on your pc, use paint or some other program to resize them.

And resizing them won't cut down on the quality?

It would cut down the quality, but you can't tell much. Open it in paint and resize 50% then see how you like it, if the file still too big then shrink it down to 60% ... I think Razzo is using photoshop to shrink his pic.

Check the resolution. Print resolution is 300 dpi but a monitor can only resolve 72 dpi, so anything above 72 is pointless for the web. Then check that the size of the image is no wider than say 10" (ample for here) and your file size should be hugely reduced. More Megapixels does not necessarily mean more quality, just a bigger file size. Lenses and processors are what make a difference. Razzo uses an SLR - much better quality lens/autofocus etc.

Hey guys, been on vacation down in the keys. Just getting back to reality.

My post workflow includes several steps - below is a summary (items that may help you are in bold):
  1. The initial image is in RAW format .CR2 extension (camera RAW).
  2. The RAW image is converted to a PSD file (Photoshop) in Adobe Camera RAW
  3. Format: Adobe RGB (1998); 8 bit, 300 ppi
  4. The PSD image is saved.
  5. The image is edited (as desired) and is resized to either 900 or 1200 pixels wide (bicubic sharpening reduction is selected). If that is not an option, you can sharpen after resizing to restore any sharpness lost in the reduction process.
  6. The image is then saved as a jpeg.
Hope that helps!

Russ
