I'm still inside the Save for Web dialog box, still looking at a detail from that 1770x780 photo.tif found inside the 12_for_Web folder. Now you should know that the selected settings that is the selected preview is what gets saved when you click on a Save button. So if I want to save out a medium quality JPEG file in my case I would click the lower left preview and then click Save. If I wanted to save a high quality version of the image which is what I truly want then I'll click the upper-right preview and click on the Save button.
But first we need to discuss one last option and that's Metadata which by default is that the Copyright and Contact Info which is a great setting. So it goes out and saves that copyright information that you entered into the File Info dialog box as well as anything in that IPTC Contact Info panel. If you want to save less for some reason you can you could just save the Copyright up to you or you could get rid of everything, if you didn't want to have any Metadata associated with the file that would make the file a little bit smaller but not all that much smaller, and I definitely do not recommend that for a large image file like this one that you're putting out for public display.
Now you do lose a few things when you choose this option for example you lose the author and description info in the very first panel. And if you want to get those back you would go ahead and select All Except Camera Info and that will make sure you have everything but the camera except data by which I mean the aperture and the shutter speed and whether the flash fired and the ISO and all that information that gets thrown away. And the rationale is that you don't necessarily want to share that with other people. You want to keep that information to yourself if you want to share that as well you would go ahead and choose All.
Another thing that you save with All Except Camera Info is a color profile which is interesting. Even if you have Embed Color Profile turned off it goes ahead and saves out a color profile. I am going to go with Copyright and Contact Info which is the default setting. And I am going to click on Save in order to save out a version of the image. Notice that the space automatically gets replaced with a dash I am going to change this file name however to something along the lines of High quality pont, I guess would work out here, and I've got dashes as well.
Very important that you don't enter space characters it's not necessarily going to break your Web page but it is getting get replaced by the equivalent code, when that space gets called and it can cause problems. You may run into problems and there is no sense in letting that happen. So either use dashes or underscores and then click the Save button in order to save off that image and close the dialog box. Now, I want to go ahead and open it up so we can see what got saved and what didn't get save. I'll choose the Open command and I'll hunt around for high-quality- pont.jpg there it is click on the Open button and let's go ahead and zoom in on the image just a little bit.
And I am going to File menu and choose that File Info command once again. And sure enough there is my document title that's good it's marked as Copyrighted there is the URL so that's awesome. If I go over to IPTC I should be able to see my contact info but I didn't enter anything there. So I'll go ahead and scroll to the bottom and there is my title and there is my copyright notice. So retain the most important information Camera Data as I said is now wiped out that's all gone. And Description, notice that I lost the Author me and I lost the Description.
But they still know to go to deke.com and if I'd been more forward thinking I would've gone ahead and filled out the IPTC Contact info. Anyway I am going to cancel out I just wanted you to see what it is you do save and what you don't save. But here's a question why does my image look the way it does, this is the way it auto look with some brilliant but muted colors were the bridge is concerned. And now it's all super hyper saturated I'll explain what's going on there in the next exercise.
