View Full Version : Posting crisp line art on the web

04-19-2003, 08:22 AM
My question is: I have posted line art on another board set to 72 dpi. The reason I set it so low was since it was going on the web, the dpi wouldn't have to be as high as in print. However, the end product looked jagged and muddy. I tried to correct it via adjusting the levels in Photoshop, but I could only do so much with the low dpi image. Can someone give me a couple of pointers on how to post a crisp,clear image without it hogging memory ?

I scan the image in at 300 dpi and adjust the levels while it's still at a high resolution. Then I change the image size to 72dpi and 600 pixels wide for web viewing. Then I choose save for the web and make it either a gif or jpeg... which ever you prefer.

That's pretty much how I do it and they always come out clear and crisp.

also, the Unsharp Mask filter. Sometimes after having resampled to a low resolution, the antialiasing makes things a little TOO smoothed. This filter is like when the optometrist drops a lens in front of your eye and says "Better?" and you say "yes."
