Challenge: Book Cover II (Extended Editing)
Collection: Portfolio
Camera: Canon EOS-6D
Lens: Sigma 50-500mm f/4.0-6.3 EX DG HSM for Canon EOS
Date: Aug 23, 2019
Aperture: 5.6
ISO: 800

Taking the photo was easy.

Making the bookcover was tough.

Uploading it was the hardest part.
*sigh*

The 1200pixel image was over 900kb so I went to Save For Web and that was only 540kb.

Nothing I tried made it higher quality in SFW.
I ended up saving it with 11 quality in regular "save as" instead of the highest of 12.

Any suggestions for next time?

I love the font and the shadow that it cast, how did you do that? Also I often “save for web” and not at maximum quality, I don’t think it makes much difference does it? I’ve won plenty of ribbons doing it that way.

Seems like a shoehorn to me, but I'm giving you an extra point for the spine.
