File size optimization for retouching : A study with a focus on fashion retouching (English)
Abstract [sv]

Under bearbetning av bilder idag förekommer ofta stora filer. Med den effektiva teknologiska utvecklingen har efterfrågan på kvalitet växt allt mer. I en värld där fotografens kamera har blivit mer högupplöst har även bilders filstorlek blivit större. Målet med detta examensarbete har varit att komma fram med en rekommendation för hur man arbetar mot en liten filstorlek. Rekommendationen är till för retuschörer som arbetar inom modebranschen och med bilder ämnade för print. Arbetet har försökt åskådliggöra vad under retuscheringens arbetsgång som orsakar en större filstorlek. Detta genom att kontakta retuschörer som ofta arbetar med modebilder. Fokus har legat på lager i Photoshop samt editeringsalternativ för retuschören. Det framkom att retuschörer gjorde liknande åtgärder för att få en liten filstorlek, och att en viss likhet kan urskiljas i deras arbetssätt kring vad som ökade filstorlek. Det framkom även att filstorleken påverkas mest av hur pixellager och masker ser ut, till skillnad från justeringslager.

Abstract [en]

During the processing of pictures today the file size often becomes large. An effective technological development has made the demand for quality higher. In a world where the photographer's camera has gotten a higher resolution, the image's file size has also increased.

The aim of this thesis has been to come up with a recommendation for how to work towards getting a smaller file size. The recommendation was intended for retouchers who work in the fashion industry and with pictures meant for print.

The work has dealt with file sizes associated with retouching and have tried to illustrate what during the retouch procedure that causes a larger file size. This has been done by contacting retouchers who often work with fashion images. The focus has been on the layers in Photoshop and editing options for the retoucher.

The results showed that the retouchers had similar ways of working towards a small file size, and a certain similarity is apparent in their way of retouching which caused a bigger file size. What also showed was that the file size is the most affected by how layers consisting of pixels and masks look compared to adjustment layers.
