    Re: Resizing photos for online viewing only?

    Every time I think I get it, I get confused.
    So, which color space does the camera need to be on?

    As usual... It depends.

    If you shoot JPG and you're in doubt, shoot in sRGB. That's my advice in a nutshell. This will simply make life easier all the way around.

    If you shoot raw, it doesn't matter what color profile you set your camera to since raw files don't have color until they are assigned a color profile. Your raw files open in color on your computer, but only because the software you're using has a default color profile (probably sRGB) that it applies when you open a raw file to view or process it. I shoot raw and I choose to open my raw files in Adobe RGB, as well as process in Adobe RGB, because Adobe RGB has a much larger palette than sRGB does. However, in choosing to process in Adobe RGB an extra step is required so my final image displays correctly on the Web. That extra step is converting the image from Adobe RGB to sRGB before saving it as a .JPG for online viewing. Some browsers and such do not display Adobe RGB correctly, hence the extra step. My full-size, full-resolution TIFF files I leave in Adobe RGB. Most printing labs prefer you use sRGB as well.

    Clear as mud?

    If you ask 10 people you might get 10 different answers. I have found out through experience that publishing images on FB will reduce their quality noticeably. I don't know what they use to resample photos but images published on FB look over-sampled and over-sharpened to me.

    I would not bother to go above 1000px on the long side and if you are using Photoshop, save them with 72 dpi quality instead of 300.

    Great tips here! I usually used photoshop when resizing photos. But glad to hear some suggestion about this question.
