I am trying to upload images around 40k to a website but it tells me images must not be less than 200k and to upload higher quality images instead. I have tried everything including save as and save for web, etc., to no avail.
Your help will be much appreciated.
This is a curious requirement, but if your photos are 40k, increasing the size to 200k most likely will not increase the quality; it will decrease the quality.
Perhaps you could tell us more about this 40k image: How did you capture it? What was the original size in pixels? Did you crop it at all? What is the final size in pixels when it is 40k?
It looks like some of the original images are doing ok in that I am able to adjust their quality by using the Save As slider if the images are big enough to begin with. However if they are already under 200k, I am out of luck. These images were sent to me by a friend to upload for her at the Zillow website. I am afraid she is out of luck as she did not save the originals that were bigger.
I just tried the Save for Web feature and much to my surprise I was able to increase the size from 40 to 208 by increasing the width from 500 to 800, contraining the proportions. It looked too big at that screen, so I thought I lost some of the image. I went ahead and saved it with a different name. Then I closed it and reopend it. Much to my surprise I had not lost any of the picture, and it is at 208k.
Yes, I agree and was concerned about this. But for this purpose the image is not too bad. Check the birdhouse in snow image out at http://www.zillow.com/homes/10661-w-falcon-ridge-hayward-wi_rb/#/homed etails/10661-W-Falcon-Rdg-Hayward-WI-54843/105102284_zpid/. Please be free to be honest with me and tell me what you think of the quality. The birdhouse and another one are what I had to "blow up." The others were ok in that their images were already too big.
After all this is not a photo contest! Grin. However I did learn a valuable lesson here, so many thanks for your help.
