Resizing for web not holding size
Oct 23, 2011

When I save my resized image from my new Canon SX40 to ca. 8 x 10 res 72 in PSCS5 to post on my pbase gallery, it reverts to ca 2 x 3 at 240 res. I have tried saving directly from the original jpg (the camera does not shoot RAW), and also saved as a psd. file and then converting to jpg. Nothing seems to make the file hold to the 72 res at the

ca 8 x 10 size. What am I doing wrong? I have pp hundreds (thousands ?) of images in CS5 from my G12, 50D and 7D , and resized this way and never had a problem.

Now... I do admit I'm downloading into ImageBrowser on my Mac running OS 10.6.8, and then opening in PSCS5. I have not downloaded the latest SX40 software, because I was planning on working in PS. Is that the problem ?

Thanks.... carolyn
