Hi All- I can't recall where but I heard or read that resizing eg a 300ppi file to 72ppi for net use is not necessary anymore, but I don't remember the reason why. Can anyone tell me if that is true to a certain extent and why? I can say for myself that the two (a 300ppi file & a 72ppi file) will download at the same rate on my system. But, I know there are times it may not download a large jpg as fast as other times, yet infrequently. I know your sending more file then the monitor uses but if a 300 vs a 72ppi pic opens at equal speed is there reason to re-size images every time you send one? I have been told, "lets not pollute the Internet with large ,jpg files that are meant for hi-res Printers. More detail is just a waste of bandwidth." Is that a true statement? Is sending eg. a 240ppi pic to someone misuse of the internet? polluting it? Thanks for your comments.
