    Why is Save to Web greatly increasing my image size?

    SethSimon

      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!!!
