    Hi friends,
    I am wondering what is your recipe for posting and saving your PL pages?

    I have tried several different "web-sizing" actions(PP, OLB, FDD) and often find that my layouts look either over-sharpened or soft at times. For the past couple of years, I have created 9x12 PL pages with a large white border around my pictures. This more than likely adds to the over-sharpened appearance because the pictures and journaling are typically smaller than on a 12x12 formatted page.

    Recently, I tried using the PSCC - File - Export - Save for Web (Legacy) process. This process allows you to optimize your page size and also choose your finished web size, 600 or 800. I think this process works well but at times my pages look soft because no additional sharpening is applied.

    So, what or how are you web sizing your PL pages? Are you satisfied with the end results? Please share, I would love to know!

    Thanks in advance!
    Happy Scrapping.

    I "Save For Web", Kelly. Both in PSE and PSCC and I'm happy with both.

    I use "Save for Web" and save at 600, and then after it's resized I run an unsharp mask on it. In PSE it's Enhance>Unsharp Mask, and my settings I use are
    Amount: 150%
    Radius: .3 pixels
    Threshold: 0

    And then save again with the unsharp mask applied. Hopefully that makes sense!

    That is super helpful @Lynnette! Thank you. I have been feeling like my pages were a little soft so I am anxious to try this out on my next PL pages. :)
