Re: Resized @ Photoshop CS2
deteriorate in what sense?...
as for compression, if the image is for web viewing, I would recommend going all the way down to 7 if the reduction in quality is acceptable... 7 provides, on average from personal experience, much greater compression than 8 but the reduction in quality is not much noticeable compared to 8... I find it the best compromise in terms of file size and quality for web images... but if the image is for print, I would try not to go below 10, which should still give a significant savings in space over 11 or 12...
and if your version of photoshop allows it, use bicubic sharper to reduce the image size instead of bicubic... if that option is not available, do remember to sharpen the image after changing image size...
