I've noticed that when making banner ads that need to be saved under 40K, i'll use save to web feature where i can do a 2 pane window to see the before and after results of my settings. If i need to crunch down the file size I adjust the compression slider and see the file size go down.  However If i get it to 38k or 39k after I save the file, I view the file on my desktop or server folder and see that the file size can end up being up to 45k or higher outside of photoshop.

Ive searched for articles on this but its a difficult thing to specify. Thanks for the help. I'd just like to know why and what the tolerances are so I can do this process confidently.

Thanks.

Jeff

Why are you still using Save for Web? It's a deprecated legacy feature and we've been using Export As for quite a few years. Try Export As, it also shows you the estimated file size and it should be better.

I don;t think adobe still develop Save for Web and they may remove it soon.
