2.5.12 Saving an Image in Compressed
Format (JPG/JPEG) for the Internet
After you finish editing your image, you can save it for use on the Internet
(Web page or e-mail attachment). Here are the steps:
Adjust the image size.
Reduce the resolution to 72 dpi (or 96 dpi).
Save the image in a compressed format.
The example image miami.tif has a resolution of 300 dpi. This resolution

Image dialog box and set the values. Change the values for the resolution
first and the image size second. 72 dpi is recommended for the resolution,
