Kind of a dumb question.....

MM, you can simply go to drag-down menu and select "image" and then "image size" in ps and select 800 pixels on the longest side. Don't bother adjusting the resolution, because for posting online or transmitting to another computer resolution doesn't matter, pixel dimensions do.

In ps, make sure the "resample image" and "constrain size" boxes are checked before actually typing in the long-side pixel dimension.

Then use the "save for Web" feature in ps, selecting jpeg and 100 percent in the quality box. This strips exif and other unneeded data but preserves as much quality as possible.

As a side note, if you're sending digital images for review and ordering, unless you are very good friends with the recipient, you should put the copyright symbol, the year and your name across the digital image in large semi-transparent characters. They'll still be able to see the impact of the image but no one will want to steal them. By sizing to 800 pixels you get a good impact, but the watermark is protection from casual theft and online misuse.

Thanks guys.

These are some farm folk I know well,later on I will copywright to the strangers.

If I'm going to crop,should I do that before selecting the 800 pixels?

Yes, crop first for the comp you want. Then resize for the Web. That way your final image will be 800 pixels on the long side. If you size to that first and then crop further, it will get smaller.

Another method that I use is an external program for resizing. I prefer IrfanView, free download. You have a ton of control over the resizing options and I run a lot of batches such as 100 shots at a time for quick resize.

Worth taking a look at for free. Pretty much fool-proof to use as well. Perfect for a guy like me.

Hmmmm, Mac version?

I'll have to check it out. I do a lot of e-mailing of small proofs to portrait clients.

    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme. 
    • New Ice shelter coming this fall from Otter and Polaris specifically made for full size Rangers.  This will be available through Polaris Dealers.   https://fishingminnesota.com/forums/topic/210952-new-ice-shelter-from-polaris-and-otter/    
    • Sure I do Dave. You take a lot of nasty old rotted left over wood from torn down houses or where ever else they scrape it up from?  Sweep it up off the floor and turn it into little compressed pellets usually for heating stoves, then Dave makes his food with it! 😜    
    • Because that's the technical term. I can't help it if you don't know what a pellet grill is or what it can do. I'm more than happy to educate you though.....     BTW, those St. Louis spare ribs were a 5-1/2 hour smoke.
