Does anyone know of a photo app for mac that will show you a preview of what your file will look like after it is saved?
I want to write an article on how to save an image to use on a webpage…
For this you need to save an image as a jpeg, but it needs to be as small as it can be without affecting the viewing quality.
I use photoshop for this. There is a function called ‘save for web’. You can choose the jpeg quality (on a slider from 0% to 100%) and on the screen you see a preview of what the image will look like after it is saved at that quality. So you can slide the slider to the lowest setting while making sure the image still looks OK.
It’s overkill to buy Photoshop for just that one feature! Even photoshop Elements is $85.
So I’m looking for a free app that simply saves an image as a jpeg but gives a preview first. I’ve just downloaded about 10 free photo re-sizing apps but none of them show a live preview.
