Hi there, I've been looking around online but can't get a satisfactory answer. The issue is this -
I use Lightroom and I export images as jpegs at 100% (I know 95% saves space etc but I have terabytes to spare not an issue). I also know dpi means squat for web. Now, when I first started out I wasn't resizing mainly because I wasn't aware I had to. I'm still not sure! I always upload to flickr and facebook, never print
. I understand facebook applies some kind of compression to the images and modifies them to fit. I don't know what flickr does. I've been experimenting with the megapixel resizing and even 2mp looks fine. My question is this - Should I just upload full size and let facebook and flickr deal with it? Or is there a way to calculate the optimum resize setting (1280 x 720 etc). What do you guys do?
I shoot RAW with a 7D / 5D mkII.
I appreciate any light shed on this, thanks!
