Best way to reduce size without reducing quality?

As Pixalo limit to a 200k size file limit can someone tell me what the best method for cutting down size without reducing the quality?

Re: Best way to reduce size without reducing quality?

There'll always be a reduction in quality with reduction in size even tho 200k is a very good compromise. However, if you find you do have quality issues, then stick to a max 800px instead of 1,000px size

Re: Best way to reduce size without reducing quality?

By reducing the nuber of pixels you will lose quality but choosing the best interpolation method can help. If you are reducing the number of pixels (e.g. for Pixelo) use Bicubic Sharper. However, if you are increasing the size of the image by interpolation use Bicubic Smoother. These re-sampling options are available in recent versions PhotoShop or Elements.
