Photoshop is a powerful tool and for only $10/month, you can use this application to it’s fullest. I do not pretend to be a professional, most of what I learned about it is from a couple of weekend college classes and online tutorials.
I would love to hear from all Photoshop experts on best practices and tips for churches and Christians to implement.
In the mean time, here are some tips from this infographic on file types that you should know if you plan to work with images:
- JPEG compression for online use could be reduced to 60%-75%, but originals should be left alone. Flyers and posters will require lossless files.
- GIF filetypes only use 256 colors and therefore are very small, but not great for high res photos of faces or places.
- PNG images are perfect for logos, images with transparency, and complex image where filesize can be large. They are unsupported by older browsers.
