Preparing Images for the Web or E-mail
Since the ﬁ rst edition of this book, the World Wide Web has become an even greater part of our daily lives, and as I mentioned then, it is no longer sufﬁ cient to concentrate solely on the process of making great prints from digital ﬁ les, as knowing how to output your pictures so that they are suitable for the web is not just a nice idea, it is now an essential part of the image-
making process. In fact, there is a growing band of professional photographers whose work never
becomes a print and only ever exists on our screens. Therefore, over the next few pages we will look
at the skills you need to become a web-savvy image maker. See Figure 10.1.
