Hi! I am starting with a 6 inch by 6 inch 600 pixel TIFF image. When I use Save to Web to create a JPEG, it decreases pixels to 72 which is what I want--but the image size of the new file shows as like 20 inches by 20 inches. I know that the original is untouched. Should I be ignoring the image size here? Here is my concern. I want the viewer to see the complete image. Is Save to Web truly jumping up the image size here? If I email myself the image---I do see the whole picture. I am concerned that the new file says 20 inches by 20 inches. Will a recipient be receiving a 20 inch by 20 inch file that might not be viewable on their screen. Hope this makes sense--confusing to me! I have read a few websites that say when using Save to Web just focus on the pixels--not on the image size. Why is image size showing as much bigger than original? Thanks!!!
SaveForWeb is just removing the resolution value (600), and the image loads at the default (72).
Web browsers don't care about resolution, just the number of pixels - which remains the same.
So is it safe for me to assume that they are seeing a whole image that appears like my original except it is now at 72 dpi?
Unless you made specific changes to the size - then yes, they're seeing the whole thing.
