| | How to reduce file size on large images with little loss of quality!
We've all experienced atleast once where we work so hard to obtain a new avatar or signature, only to find out that its file size is too big. Today we are going to discover a way to reduce file size with out the loss of quality! All we need is a starter image
and a program know as gimp.
First of all, save this image to your computer by right clicking and hitting "save image as". Enter something along the lines of "image.png" (the .png will help hold up the quality for a bit).
Next we open it on gimp by clicking on file, then open, then lastly clicking on the image from where you saved it.
Moving on, we go back to the file menu, but this time we will click "save as", when the window comes up title it something like "image.jpg" (the .jpg is really important, so don't change it).
Now we must hit the save button.
upon saving, you will notice a little window with some words on it, just click export.
After you hit export another window will show up. Click advanced options and make sure the window looks exactly like the image below.
hit save to save it for the very last time, and voila, you're finished.
You may lose a little bit of quality, and when you use a larger image the file size goes down more, and the effects are less noticeable.
