Does anybody know if the different JPEG options on Photoshop makes any difference when you use the "Save as..." command.
I have an Spanish copy of PS; but I'll try to translate the different options.
I'm not talking about "Image options"; sure everybody uses maximum quality (12-big file). My question is about "format options".
There are three options:
1- Standard base line
2- Optimized base line
3- Progressive. This one with a selection of number of passes
What is the best? Or simply... What is the difference?

I use std PS setting, not sure which one that is. I have tried the different settings, but I can't see any significant difference between choosing either one of them, so I don't bother changing it now.

I've tried different settings also. I don't see any difference (In fact it doesn't matter, cause I don't see differences between accepted and rejected pics ).
But I realised, with preview activated, that "standard base line" -first option- gives you a bigger file size. May I think the bigger the size, the better the quality?

The difference between progressive and baseline is the way the image is loaded into your browser. Baseline loads the image from the top down, progressive loads the whole frame, first with a low res frame then adding (progressively) a number of passes (that you specify) until the image is at full resolution. Different browsers will load these differently. The only important setting is the quality setting. This should be set as high as possible (keeping the file size under 1meg for a.net use). The quality setting determines the level of compression used when creating the file. Less compression = better quality.

- Calidad: 12 Maxima
- Opciones de formato: Progresiva Pases 5
- Tamaño: Doesn't matter, it just gives you aprox file transfer time according to connection chosen
We all agree Quality should be "12-Maximum" because it gives the biggest file size. According to this, as "standard baseline" option gives an increasing of size; may this option gives an increasing of quality?

I think you might have a confusion here. You set the quality of the file (that is information contained in the file) with the "Calidad" setting. With "Opciones de formato" you do not alter quality of the file, but you just tell PS how to compress the jpg file (and thus have as a result different file sizes).
Whatever you choose for "Opciones de formato", the quality will be exactly the same but the filesize might vary (and actually just little).
Hope this helps you.
Just sit back, relax and have a glass of Merlot...enjoy your life!
