What is a Good Photo Size?
Jul. 31st, 2005 @ 04:03 am
When I first started to use Scrapbook I didn't pay attention to the size of the photo files I was downloading. My account was close to max in no time.
I now want to organize and maximize my Scrapbook photos for posting to my journal.
What is a good size to use when downloading photos?
Can I resize photos in Scrapbook? I couldn't find any resize tools.

I use Photoshop to resize my pictures at 4"x6" at 72 dpi resolution.
Personally, I use 500x375 pixels.
Thank you. Is that Washu from Tenchi?
I resize mine down to 640x480 in Photoshop before uploading anywhere.
Thanks for your help.
BTW, two of my favorite words are anachronistic and sinecure.
I use Irfanview to make my photos smaller before I upload them, if only because my family insists on keeping their computers at 600 x 800 resolution and my photos don't fit on their screen otherwise. I usually try to make it so they'll fit on a screen at 600 x 800.
Irfanview is good because it is free and does a good job of keeping the integrity of your photos. Plus you can do batch conversions, which I love.
Everyone else is talking about resolution because you mentioned resizing, but I'm gonna go out on a limb and assume that you didn't mean that.
Personally, I have to really like a photo for it to be more than 100k. Anything less than 50k is usually fine, as far as I'm concerned, and that still lets you have a fair few online. Of course, if you just took more than a couple of thousand photos while on holiday and planned to upload them all, you might want each file to be a little smaller in size.
That is a very good point. The size of the image and the size of the file are two different things. My question about maximizing the use of Scrapbook include both presentation and storage. I want to store lots of pictures that look good when I post them.
I looked at your photos and 50 to 100k look fine. My photos are anywhere from 50 to 1000K. Ouch!
