Chapter 22. Output > Web and Email Output

Web and Email Output

Web output is very simple. Unfortunately, this is partly because there are no color management controls for the Web. Since there’s nothing you can do but post your images and hope your viewers are using decent monitors, you don’t need to spend time trying to tweak your final image to look good on a particular monitor or paper type.

Your main concern when you prepare an image for the Web (or for email) is file size. You probably already know what it’s like to wait for a large image to download, either from the Web or from your mail server. Don’t inflict the same data glut on other people by posting or emailing really large files. Obviously, if you and your recipient have high-speed connections, you can probably get away with creating larger files. Be aware, however, that the mail servers provided by many Internet service providers put a limit on the maximum size of an email attachment. If you absolutely have to email a large image to someone, consider segmenting it by using a file-compression utility.
