I don't know Carol, but I do know that I never ever resize recipe cards or ATC's -- or even my Project 52 layouts which were in 5x7 size. They always uploaded ok in the original jpeg size, maybe because the file size is smaller?

I use PSE12 and this is how I save for the Web: With the PSD File saved I then go to 'Flatten Layer', then 'Image, Resize, Image Size and change the resolution to 72dpi. The pixel width and height will change automatically. Click on OK. The image will appear smaller than your 12x12. Then I 'save for web' a page will pop up with two images of the layout. Click on 'Save' and another page will pop up where you can name your layout to save. That's it.

I use PSE 9 And I do almost the same:

 

1. save the psd as a jpg

 

2. Open the jpg file, then click 'resize'

 

3. When the dialog pops up I first change the resolution to 72ppi, then change the size to 600 x 600

 

4. save-as, and add "web" to the name ("layout-web.jpg")

I do exactly what Becky does. Saving as a jpeg gives you a flattened image, so you really don't need to flatten first.

 

Just so you know, if you add the EXIF data to your images using "File Info" in your program, using the "Save for Web" option will take the info out so we can't access it from the gallery.
