Photoshop apparently uses different algorithms (at least up to version 8) for "Save As" and "Save for Web" actions. If you save your images via "Save As", they are generally bigger in filesize and worse in quality at the same quality setting than if you use "Save for Web".

- Interesting info. Do you have sources that we can point to? -- (T) 10:00, 23 September 2006 (EDT)
- If you mean the photoshop thing, I tested it myself in a comparison between photoshop, irfanview, ms photo editor (was bundled with ms office, not anymore I heard) and ms paint (:P) and discovered it accidentally when I clicked the wrong entry in the menu and was too lazy to cancel and click again... (or something like that, I don't remember exactly but it sounds like me...) This was back in 2000 or so, and I checked again casually when I got access to a new photoshop version because I was just curious. The test itself I posted on a forum and got so "much" feedback that I decided to spare the writing time. Sorry. -watchout 10:42, 23 September 2006 (EDT)
- Irfanview certainly is one of the best (and free) image progs, but I don't have a source for it either :) -- (talk) 10:19, 23 September 2006 (EDT)
