Can you reverse "Save for web"?

I lost the full res version of this file. All I have is the "Save for web" file that I uploaded here. What is the best way to "reconstitute" the file to as close as original as possible?
The original was a 10mp file and I dropped it to 600 pixel on the long side when I saved for web. Is there any hope?

Re: Can you reverse "Save for web"?

Any editing you do to an image will reduce it's quality, especially with a JPG. If there is no hope of finding the original that you lost (and you have checked Recycles Bins etc?) then I'm afraid the best version you have is the 600px JPG. You can make it bigger, but it will rely on the computer interpolating (guessing) at what the rest of the pixels should look like.

There are a number of utilities out there that will let you search the disk for deleted and even in some cases overwritten files, that may be your best bet.

cheers

Dan

Re: Can you reverse "Save for web"?

Sorry but Dan is correct, once the file has been altered down you can not bring it back.
Real shame as great pic.

Re: Can you reverse "Save for web"?

This just empahises how important it is to archive your final edited image at full resolution, preferably in a wider gamut such as Adobe RGB(1998) and preferably in a lossless format such as TIFF or PSD. You can then go back to the archive to make copies for different purposes such as printing or the web.

It is a very good picture but I suspect that you could take this one again. You will have to look hard for a leaf in such good condition.

NICHPR, goto this site

Resize and enhance your favourite pictures with ease.

and download the fully functioning 15 day trial of Sizefixer XL.


I ran your small image through my own copy of XL and got a good A3 at 300 dpi.
trouble is I can't send you the file as it is 108mb.

Save your jpg as a TIFF first before processing through XL

Re: Can you reverse "Save for web"?

Doug,

I just can't thank you enough. Sizefixer worked!
I can now put that shot back in my portfolio. I thought it was lost for good.
I do have a question - I got better results without using the "Super Resolution" feature and my file size was only 53 mb when done (using the Default A3 Preset output size). How did you process it and why is your file size so much larger than mine?
Thanks again,
- Paul

Re: Can you reverse "Save for web"?

Glad to be off help Paul, I suspect my file size was because I used Super Resolution.

Process steps:-

1. First save jpg as TIFF.

2. Open TIFF in Sizefixer.

3. Use preset A3 @ 300 dpi.

4. Select "Super Resolution".

5. Select "Unsharp Masking".

6. Select "Use Edge Enhancement".

7. Process

All above were used on their default parameters.

Doug

Re: Can you reverse "Save for web"?

Interesting - when I used Super Resolution and Edge Enhancement the results were noticeably poor - Much better without.
Thanks again for the tip.\
