Step 2 – Resize Your Layout

Select Image > Image Size

Change the Resolution to 72 pixels/inch

Change the longest side of your layout to 600 pixels.  Most layouts are square, so your finished sized would be 600 x 600 pixels, however, sometimes layouts are rectangle.  In this case, the longest size should not be larger than 600 pixels

Your optimized file format should be .jpg and the quality high.

You can change the quality to reach your desired file size. The file size is usually around 150K, Gotta Pixel’s gallery size is up to 200K.

Save your web file with a different name so you don’t overwrite the original.
