    Hi all,

    I've put together a website for my wife which displays photos of her craft
    items. I take the photos and edit in Photoshop CS3. The photos are 72dpi
    when opened in Photoshop. I'm not sure if this is right, but I've been
    cropping each photo as needed and saving as 300dpi, and then resampling down
    to the max allowed by the website host...which is 450dpi on the longest
    side. This results in thumbnails on the website which can be clicked on to
    get a larger version. I'm thinking that I don't need to resample to 300dpi?
    Is this correct? The file size of each thumbnail is around 40kb or so. Any
    advice appreciated.
    Cheers,

    Paul

    The website is www.littleextras.net

    Stuff yourself. You couldn't tell the difference between 72 and 96 DPI
    if you tried.
    Yes, I know that.
    Which is why I said it didn't matter. Perhaps you missed that in your
    desire to pontificate and lecture with great pomposity. How do you and
    your ego live in that same small skull?

    You may need to see eye doctor cuz even at the age of 72 I still be able
    to see the difference without trying.

    Or it may be acceptable for web, but getting me to look at low-rez image
    is kinda hard.

    You can see DPI, which only applies to the printed image, on a monitor?
    You're Superman! Or you're a liar... which is it?
