Building Mosaic Images in PhotoShop

Assembling the Mosaic
The first step after acquiring your images for a mosaic is to assemble them in PhotoShop in their initial configuration. I generally open all the images at the same time and do an initial arrangement to make sure everything is going to fit correctly and nothing is missing. The image below shows 3 frames of a Moon image I have taken as they have been initially dropped onto the canvas for processing. This is the image we will work thru in this tutorial.

Getting Started With Photoshop: Basic Tasks to create Web-Ready Images

For purposes of this tutorial, we will be working with a number of image files located in a folder called Photoshop Class Samples. This folder should already be on your desktop if you are part of the Photoshop class. Create another folder on the desktop with your name. We will want to preserve our original photos in the Photoshop Class Samples folder, and store our working copies in this new folder. We only want to work on the files in the working files folder, which will later be saved for the web. Never work from your master images. That way, you can always start over from the original image if necessary.

Resizing images with Adobe Photoshop and Posting the Resized Image in Project Builder

Often times images are posted on the web and resized with HTML code. This leads to an image full of jagged edges. By resizing your image in an image editing program, such as Adobe Photoshop, you can utilize smoothing algorithms that will make an image look much smoother. Additionally, resizing the image will reduce the file size, allowing a web page to load faster than usual. This document will be written in the sense that you’re working on a CAE workstation.

Optimizing Your Images for the Web with Adobe Photoshop

When placing an image on a web page your image should be only as large as it needs to be to display correctly on the page. If your image is too large (800 x 600) and you resize it within the Dreamweaver application by dragging its corners, the file size is not reduced, just the visual size of the image. If you reduce the image size in Photoshop to display the correct size on the web page, you can save file space/size and allow the viewer to view the image much quicker. (For example: An image sized at 800 x 600 could be a 2MB file. If that file is reduced to the size needed on the page, e.g., 360 x 413, the file size can be brought down to 436k. This file is easier for someone to view on a web page through their network connection and saves space on the server.
