This is driving me absolutely mad.
I save for web at 100%. I open back up. I save again at 100%. It is bigger than the last time. It keeps doing this over and over and over it could be infinite filesize but still only exact same quality image.
What I need to do is make one sigle aspect of the image 100% resolution (my logo) but make the rest and NOT my logo a smaller filesize. What SHOULD work, is to save WITHOUT the logo, and decrease, say 70%. Then open back up the SMALLER image, add the logo and move back to 100% quality and should be SMALLER THAN THE FIRST IMAGE.
1000KB image (1010KB with logo)
save without logo at 70% Open the now 700KB image in photoshop.
Add 10KB logo, save at 100%
IMAGE IS NOW 1310KB!!
BUT THE FIRST TIME IT WAS ONLY 1010 KB WITH LOGO AT 100% QUALITY!!
What it SHOULD be is:
Do you get it? THIS MAKES NO SENSE! I HAVE WASTED 5 HOURS ON THIS SH*T!!
WHAT THE HELL??
feel free to edit this question to remove my emotional frustration. Right now I can't think clearly I am so mad right now.
