recommendation.. shoot at the highest quality you can. then use an editing program (like paintshop pro) to lower the size for posting online.

wehn decreasing pixel size. go in stages.

for example. i always shoot at 1280x1024. bu i post at 400x300

you dont want to do one huge jump and resize down to 400.

i resize to 800x600. then i run the sharpen filter, and edit the brightness, contrast, and curves. then resize to 400, and run the sharpen filter again.

this ends with a much clearer end photo, than if you were to jump straight down to something small, then try to sharpen it. too much will be lost.

fwi: a good size for posting online, that is big enough to see good clarity, yet small enough to be 56k friendly, is 400x300 jpg format with 10% quality reduction.
