Image weight adds up fast if you have a lot of large images. I don't do print media so someone else would need to talk to it, but I commonly here that 300-600 dpi is requested whereas for the internet resolution is much less of a factor.
If all I've been given is a .jpg I'll typically save it as a .png along the way. _______________________________________________ Gimp-user mailing list Gimp-user@lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU https://lists.XCF.Berkeley.EDU/mailman/listinfo/gimp-user
