Save For Webs on Retina Screens

Hi there,

 

I've seen this issue come up for years now and I don't see any resolution (no pun intended). I had a workflow on earlier iMacs when designing for web that went like this:

 

1. Open photoshop document at needed dimemsions at 300 ppi.

2. Increase image size to 300%.

3. Design / import graphics.

4. Save for web at 33.33% (This would get me back to needed dimensions at 72ppi).

5. Rejoice at crisp and sharp website and online graphics.

 

Using this method - designing in high resolution and compressing to lower resolution - used to give me crisp and sharp website imagery. For years now since Mac went to 4K - 5K screens, this has not worked. Instead I get a pixelated nasty image that is unusable. I've actually noticed a trend recently where websites often just don't have crisp raster images. Why? What can I do to offset this?

 

Please advise,

 

Brandon
