This point is important in case the image quality is not lost when it is saved on our computer.

How many times are images smaller than 1024 and which are still of poor quality, because perhaps those images have been retouched and changed their original quality.

In order for this not to happen when your images are saved, you need to follow these simple steps which will teach you how to change the resolution and size of your Photoshop-edited images.

  1. Click Save As… in the menu "File".
  2. It opens a small window where it makes us evaluate the image quality with a number and based on these it also shows the weight in KB of your image in question.
  3. You must observe that your image has an acceptable resolution but the weight of your image is not excessive.
  4. The weight can affect the fact that when you want to upload it to a social network, send it by post or via a WhatsApp chat or any other platform, it prevents us from doing it because our image file is very heavy.
