When grading images for the web, we have to observe certain rules and best practices. First, the images can't contain layers or other excess data. Second, the images have to be physically small, rarely larger than a few hundred pixels in either dimension. Print size and resolution are irrelevant. Third, you are permitted just three file formats. JPEG, GIF, and PNG. And fourth, if you want your colors to survive with any degree of accuracy, the color space should be set to sRGB.
Fortunately, the Save for Web command takes care of most of this issues for you. It flattens the file, removes the access, keeps copyright and other important metadata, scales the image, directs you to the proper file formats, and converts the image to sRGB. I demonstrate each and every step in the process, as well as provide guidance for which file formats to use when in the following movies.
