This is a copy from my post in the Gallery forum that turned into more of a question for the Q & A.  It started because I had some 600×600 layouts to upload to the gallery and they turned out to be too big.  I wanted to know what makes one layout bigger than the other yet all are resized to 600×600.

I need all the tutorials I can get.  I see the compression (quality slider), I had it at best quality I moved it off for a smaller size.  I do come from a printing background so the best quality is what I strive for.  I need to understand that it’s not as important for online usage. A tutorial explaining the difference between the print world and online world would be great.  And some suggested PSP settings would help.  I noticed in all my layouts how wildly different the sizes were, does that have to do with how much stuff (layers) is in the layout.  Does adding more photo’s that you add full sized and reduce with the pick tool make for a larger layout size than if you first reduced the size of the photos before you pasted them into the layout.   hmmm, that’s a question I was going to ask in the next Q &A.
