How To Resize Photos for Web - 3 Methods
« on: October 31, 2023, 12:51:34 PM »
The best practice for scanning your work is to always scan at a minimum of 300 dpi. For even crisper images, 600 or even 1200 dpi work best. But 300 seems to be the agreed upon minimum. Anything lower and you lose resolution.

However, this makes a rather large file size - usually over 1.5 mb. You can then resize for web viewing while retaining the sharpness of your work.

I resize in photoshop for web viewing and keep the size at about 1,000 px wide and then 72 dpi. Following are three other methods if you do not have photoshop.

You can use a free online image resizer like Adobe.

You can use a free app called “Image Size” that has excellent reviews and seems pretty straightforward.
Image Size for Apple
Image size for Android

If you have an iPhone or ipad, there is another great, easy option. This is to use the “shortcut” app to create a shortcut to create the web sized image. Shortcut App on YouTube.

Hope that helps!
