I am new to photoshop elements and have a question...
After editing what quality setting is most popular for re saving jpeg images?
The original size of my images are around 5mb, if I edit and re save at quality 10 they save at around 5mb, if I choose to save at quality 12 the size jumps up to around 12mb -15mb.
The file size jump between quality setting 10 and 12 is pretty big, after looking at the image quality I personally could not really see any difference between 10 and 12.
Should I save all of my photos at quality 12 or am I just wasting space? Is quality 10 just as good?
All of my photos are personal photos that will just be viewed on a computer screen and TV.
Any advice/feedback from the experts here would be appreciated.
There's extremely little difference visually between a 10 and a 12, and I would say go to 10 (or even 9 or 8).
If you want to read more, there is a description of what happens when you change the quality levels here (written for Lightroom, which uses a 0 to 100 scale, but applies equally to the PSE and Photoshop 0 to 12 scale)
Iagree. Using 12 will just result in a larger file size.
