Quick question about output jpeg quality

Hi, I wondered if anyone could answer my query, it's probably basic stuff for photographers.

I am about to send some work to a publishing company..the work was created in SA at 3500 x 2400. I have saved as jpeg.. they require 'jpeg level 12' ..I am a bit confused are the ones saved from SA the same?..Is this something to do with 16 bit versus 8 bit?

You could save as png, tiff, or psd and then convert that to a jpeg if you need control over the amount of jpeg compression in the file. Preview should do it.

In general, saving as an uncompressed image for final artwork is a good idea, since you can then compress after the fact in different ways. While still maintaining an uncompressed master art image.

thanks, that’s definitely helped

"Do you want a paint preset? Or do you want to use interactive warp? There are some options in there that use an adjustable local sphere radius for the interactive warp effect."

Kai's supergoo..

John, a long time ago, years in fact, I asked if there was a preset that imitated the old 90s program 'Kai's supergoo". You put a really cool preset up which did just that, I've trawled my laptop and backup and cannot find it...any chance you or anyone could put it up again?thanksSee More
