erica_ericacatherine84 Posted July 9, 2019 Share Posted July 9, 2019 Hello,I’m wondering what the ideal method would be to compress my jpeg files, without losing quality. I’m an illustrator who created my illustrations 30x24 inches on Apple’s Procreate software. I wanted to ensure they wouldn’t lose quality once printed to this large size. However, they’re now 7200x9000 px (65MP) and 172 MB. Much greater than the recommended size of under 60MP and between 500KB-20MB, for Squarespace image uploading requirements.I’ve tried photoshop (following suggested steps, listed under my signature), but could only compress an image to 6.2MB. Smaller but still larger than recommended, given I plan to display multiple images per website page, and the recommended total MB per page is under 5MB (ideally under 1MB), to ensure efficient loading times. The pixel dimensions were also still unchanged (7200x9000px/65MP). Is there another method, aside from photoshop, I should be using, or did I use photoshop incorrectly?Hoping I can find a solution to decrease both my MB and MP, and still preserve my image quality. I’d like to avoid having to re-illustrate every single one of my files, just to share online... Please let me know if you require any further information/attachments to better assist. Many thanks for your help! Photoshop steps I used:-save file as a jpeg (click “save for web” under “file” menu)-compress the file to between 60-80%-click save Link to comment
