Get A Trip Posted June 18, 2011 Share Posted June 18, 2011 (edited) I am still not getting clear images after I bought all these expensive high resolution photos from Shutterstock. I purposefully chose the largest sizes thinking there would be less resolution degradation once I down-sized them. Then tonight just on a whim I tried dowmloading a 72dpi instead of the normal 300 dpi and once I re-sized them to about 20% the original size, than the 72 dpi had the clearer image. How can this be possible? Granted the 72 dpi image started off much smaller, so had less way to shrink, as opposed to the 300dpi. Does this matter? Second question: Should I be first saving Jpegs into a different format like png.'s first beofre resizing smaller for maximum resolution? I heard they had better resolution, is this true or rumour? These photos are for a website where clarity comes first though load speed is all a consideration, though resolution clarity is first priority. Can I have the best of both worlds? Sorry, that's a 3rd question! I really want to get this resolution thing down, especially considering the costs involved. Thanks for the consideration.
