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.

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? If so leave a comment below!

You can help me by clicking on any other article. Google have started penalising this site because it is so good! People read an article, get the answer they want, and leave. I think this is a great thing, but Google have a different view. They call it a 'bounce' and have started penalising sites that people only visit one page on. They perceive it as 'you didn't like what you saw, so you left' when in fact it could have been 'you got what you needed so you left.' So please, if this article was helpful, just click back to the front page or to any other article on this site. This says to Google you like this site. Thanks!
