Saving your Photos on to Jpeg

Posted by jan1 on 19/2/2016 at 03:07

Hi
I am not sure what quality of Jpeg to save my Photo''s ?
Baseline Optimzed was thinking of this option or
Baseline Standard
at a Baseline Optimised setting difference size ( ) I then have a choice of info taken from a random picture
8 High ( 146 K )
9 High ( 171 K )
10 Max ( 203 K )
11 Max ( 247 K )
12 Max ( 317 K )
wanting to display pictures on a 42 inch TV screen as a slideshow and maybe print one or two pictures out size 4 inches by 6 inches
Also I am not sure what is the Max size of USB that 42 screen TV take up to ?
and how do you change the size go your pictures to fit the full screen on a TV or by changing the size do you lose quality as my pictures only fit part of the screen the rest is black
going to be buying a new TV but not till later in the year
what would be my best option
I use a Mac and photoshop
Hope someone can help me out here
Many Thanks Jan

hey jan, i do not use photo-shop, so do not understand some of the terminology you have used. how do you have your photos stored now? ie. what format are they? eg. all the photos on my camera are in jpg format. all the aforementioned sizes seem rather small to me... my understanding is that you should take and keep photos as large as you can for display or print purposes. if you wish to display on the net, then you save a copy for 'net use', which will be smaller than the original photo...

10 max ( 1.3 M )
9 High ( 973 K )
8 High ( 731 K )

hey, i checked some of the sizes i have and the jpg's vary from 3 to 6mb and raw images about 15-18mb. obviously you would only use the jpg's,.. but since storage devices for photos are so cheap i can't see why you would need to minimise their size, just keep them as is... you will have the quality and not have to waste time reformatting all your photos?

Hi
Yes you have a point there I guess I should try and keep them as they are,

I am having to photoshop a lot of them anyway

so this is why I have come up with the question how should I save them as it gives me these different options

I guess best keep them on a high setting

Thanks Jan

hey, one other thing, keep a set of the original photos separate, so if anything needs to be photo-shopped, make sure it is a copy of the original, i've read (rightly or wrongly), that every time you save a jpg, the quality is reduced...

Yes I did that I have kept a copy of the originals thanks

I also read that opening and closing a jpeg is fine - but opening and saving it a second time will reduce the quality

I have busy few days as I have 10 years of pictures to go through LOL

Aren't png files better in terms of maintaining quality?
