We'll begin this training by learning about a few ways that we can scale an image in Photoshop and discuss how this can affect file size and quality. From here we'll spend the remainder of our time working in the Save for Web Dialog in Photoshop optimizing images to be saved as Jpeg, GIF and PNG file formats. Along the way we'll discuss how we can make a compromise between quality and file size as we explore the Save for Web Dialog and some of it's settings. These lessons will help you gain some insight into the different file types when optimizing images for use on the web and allow you to choose the appropriate optimization for your own images. Software required: Photoshop CC 14.2.
