Hi. I'm designing a web site for a friend in FP 2003. He has sent me his picture in jpeg format. It is way, way too big when I open it so I have modified the size to get it down to where it is usable but....the quality is terrible. So my question is how do I get the best quality picture I can. Does it start with the scan or is it what happens after that and how it is saved etc?

Thanks for the help

its a copromise between size of file and size of picture/compression.
have a play around until you get the compromise acceptable.
approx 60K file size.

however if the picture is poor quality to start with - you may struggle

what does terrible mean - maybe post the example

sharpening - etc

Hey, guy. How did you resize? In FP? Dont' do it there. Do it in a graphics program. If you don't have one, PM me for my email address, and I'll resize that jpg for you to whatever size you want, with good res. :)

I think maybe the picture quality of the original was poor to begin with. When I think of it, I've used other pictures in the past which have been fine. I've just been sent some new ones so I will try those first before posting it.

Thanks for the confirmation that I wasn't doing something wrong, anyway.
