    You need to do file-save as.....then save it at highest quality, there will be a selector that you can slide from 1-12, set it on 12 for highest quality

    Here is a way to show:
    #1 File Save as:
    [​IMG]

    Then select JPG as the format, if you have flattened the image in PS already, it will show up as a JPG, but like this had numerous layers in it so it default saves as a PSD....change it to JPG, and then name it your file name
    [​IMG]

    THen when you click save, this is the slider bar I was talking about, make it maximum.....if you are going to just share the photo here, or on other online forums, make it like 10 that way load times are quicker!

    10 should be fine for web.. also check your resize is set to bicubic or bicubic sharper.

    When resizing you should also resize to an even % rather than by pixel. If you resize by 50%, for example, you will get fewer jagged edges than if you reduced 1200x800px image to 1000x700px.

    Also, when you resize, you lose sharpness. Use USM at a fairly mild setting (I use 80%, .4px radius, and threshold 4) to resharpen the resized image. You can also get a better web prep actions from fredmiranda.com: http://www.fredmiranda.com/software/

    Also, iirc, Photobucket will resample the image to save space on their servers. Many online photo hosts do the same thing, so you are at the mercy of their quality settings.

    I always resize by pixel just becuase its easier.
    Is there a quick way to have photoshot figues out what % of what = 600 pixels or close to it?
