JAA Posted August 24, 2022 Share Posted August 24, 2022 I want to save a 4000x4000 pixel graphic. Very detailed. Since this is for the web, I want it to be as low memory as possible. I have tinkered with all the saves. 1. JPEG gives me loads of artifacts with higher compression. (The picture needs to look clean looking as it will be viewed at higher magnification in the web page.) 2. GIF does the same. 3. 24/32 bit png are waaay too high memory. (Over 20mb) But the good thing about this save is the pixels in the result can be made to look clean. However, the 8 bit png save with 0 dither (whatever that is) looks great. For me its 4.75mb. Its a bit higher than I would like. If I resize the pic to 2000x2000 some of the detail is lost so does not look as good, but could be considered acceptable. The 8 bit, 0 dither save comes in at 1.39mb. The best CLEAN resizing is Nearest Neighbour. However, 1 px lines can sometimes disappear with the 50% resize obviously. Are there any addons that give other options for resizing? 1.39mb would be a great save size, but as I say the 2000x2000 loses some of the detail which will be viewed under magnification on the web page where it will live. The Questions So how do I define the palette in the 8 bit save? At the moment I have 32 colours in the colour window. Is that the palette that is being used in the 8 bit save? I think I can see how to create more palette entries. How do I get a consistent palette with multiple picture saves? Are there any better Resize addons to result in a CLEAN (less blended) results that do not hide 1px lines? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
