Save for web, amazing variations

Mar 6, 2012 8:05 PM

I'm well aware that there are variations between images, but this new project is just baffling me.

 

On medium setting I have image that are 400mb, and others that are only 50mb.

 

This last one that is 50 mb is color, with a lot of dark, blacks, I would have thought it would have been on higher end but is 50, very low weight.

 

Others are very large and I have no idea why.

 

 

What's the logic behind this? thanks.

    Your post contains almost no information, and can not be answered.

    Hi,

     

    The problem you are facing, I guess it is due to image resolution. the images which are 400mb are of very high resolution and the images that are 50mb are of low resolution. For reducing the size of 400mb images change it to low resolution.

     

    Here are the steps to reduce the resolution of images:

     

    - Go to image menu in the top navigation menu and select image size or press ctrl+Alt+I.

    - This will open a new dialog box with the image size settings.

    - Change the resolution settings to reduce it.

     

    An then try to export it, size will be decreased.

     

    Hope this helps,

    If these images are identical in physical size (same # of pixels) then variation in file size can be attributed to the content of the image. A barren, snowy landscape will have a smaller file size than a photo of Times Square in NYC.

    You might try sharing a desktop snapshot to explain yourself. Lundberg02 was on to something.

    72 is meaningless in this discussion. There is no dpi or ppi on the web. The only thing that matters is the pixel dimensions of the image. Sounds like you need to learn the fundamentals of image sizing. Image sizing is done before saving for web.

    You sure it's not "kb" as opposed to "mb"?

    This thread is not about anything meaningful because we can't see the images theselves or any of their dimensions or modes.

    Agreed, the OP seems unable to describe the problem, or provide enough information.

    Kevin, it would be well to list the actual pixel dimensions of your images.

     

    You seem to have a lot of trouble providing specific information when you post here...  Why is that?  Details definitely matter.

    Upload them to the web and post a link then we can all see them.

    This thread was moot because no information was ever provided. The moderator should have intervened. Why waste everyone's time?
