uncompressed sizes problem

Recommended Posts

Hi there


I'm new to Alamy and just nervously uploading my test. It accepted 3 of my images happily but has rejected the fourth and I don't understand why. The file was a tiff of 195MB uncompressed. I then compressed it and changed it to jpeg, as I had all the others. But when I uploaded it the computer stated that it was not a big enough file and that it should be over 24mb uncompressed. What have I done wrong? Or is it a technical error on the computer's part? 


thanks so much

Not sure what you did wrong, but that sounds like an awfully big TIF. Are you sure you converted it to eight bits before saving it as a JPEG?


Alamy SizeCheck is a useful little program. You can download it here.


Newer versions of PS don't need conversion to eight bits before converting to jpg - done automatically in the process.


Can also recommend the SizeCheck programme for a quick check.


Are you sure, Fiona, that you have saved the jpg as Baseline (Standard) in Format options??
