After each photo editing a very important step is the final one: saving for web. This is a very important passage to upload photos for web and social networks in a small format. Below the passages to create a final sharpen and resize photos for web.
Take the photo already finished to save it for web, first thing let’s resize it.
Go to Image>Duplicate this will create a copy of the photo in a new window, then go to
Image>Image size and change the resolution in 72 Dpi. The width/height width will change automatically, once that’s done change below in Bicubic Smoother (enlargement).
Once resized, let’s continue with the sharpening . In the new window duplicate layer, rename it “Sharpen and Resize” and go to Filters>Sharpen>Unsharp Mask. Set a smaller radius (0.5) and higher strength (100/120), you can change theese values as your personal taste but usually theese values works the best.
Once sharpening applied we need to resize again the image, this time as the final width/height desired, go again to Image>Image size and change the width or height (it depends if you have a orizontal or vertical photo) for the final size of the photo, for web I usually set it on 1000px on the long size.
The final step to sharpen and resize photos for web it to save the photo. Go to File>Save As and set the your desired final quality. And that’s it. Just choose a name you want and save it 🙂
