PS CS3 Quick "Urgent" Question about Saving.
on Dec 4, 2007 at 11:24:39 am

Problem: I have a client who wants 2 icons. 1 at 50x50 and 1 at 25x25. The sizes have to be lower than 16KB and 4KB respectively and in PNG format. The problem is when I save the 50x50 icon it saves at "4KB on disk (3,836 bytes)" and when I save the 25x25 it also saves at "4KB on disk (1,867 bytes)"...

So, the 50x50 icon is fine (in size) but the 25x25 has to be lower than 4KB on disk (Is that possible?)...

My Saving Routine:
Save for Web -> [PNG-8]:[256Colors]:[NoTransparencies]

Question: How should I go about saving this so the 25x25icon would be lower then 4KB on disk?

I saved a 25 x 25 and it was 481 bytes. Size on disk is 4.0kb, probably because that is the minimum size of a packet on that disk.

So if you are runnign into the same situation, you woudl have to reformat yoru disk to a smaller packet size, or just drag this onto a USB shuttle .

When using save for web you will notice the estimated file size on the bottom left, use this to help you figure out what is the best setting and what is going on.
