Photoshop :: How To Retain Text Clarity When Reducing Image

Nov 4, 2013

I need to use a couple of screen shots in an e-learning course. The screen shots contain text and when I try to reduce the sizes of these images the text becomes fuzzy. I've just worked out how to reduce an image size in Photoshop.

(I'm not the most proficient user; I bumble through processes when I need it.) I've used 'bicubic' and 'bicubic sharper' in the reduction process, but both produce a fuzzy appearance. Is there a way that I can reduce these images while retaining as much textual clarity as possible? images have not been created in Photoshop. And I'm not sure if it makes a difference, but I'm using SnagIt for my screen grabs.

Illustrator :: Reducing File Size Without Loosing Clarity?

Apr 6, 2012

I have two designs for labels that have to be approved by the government for type size regulations.  The current size of the illustrator files are 133.3 MB and 24.7 MB I need to provide these at no larger than 450 kb AND the type must be readable and measurable for approval.
I have tried everything I can think of to provide the artwork small enough yet still retaining enough resolution to not make the type fuzzy and not able to be measured for size.  I've tried making the files from within illustrator, I've tried taking everything into Photoshop to make the JPEGS with no luck.  They want either a gif, jpeg or tiff no larger than 450 kb that is viewable at the print size of the label with no loss of resolution...

Photoshop :: Clarity On Printing Text

Jan 22, 2009

I have issues with clarity on printing text I have created in Photoshop. All looks clear on the screen but when I print it, the images are nice and crisp but the text is almost blurry?

Latest issue (need HELP ASAP): When creating text in a separate file and copying the layer to another file... why is the image so small? I created some chrome text and when I copied the layer to my file with the image it was like the size of a pin! Is this why I am losing clarity when printing?

Photoshop :: Export PSD To PDF And Retain Text

Jul 4, 2009

I know that you can export a PSD to PDF by printing the document with something like NovaPDF, however, doing so will result in a PDF that has no text - it appears the text has been rasterized and the PDF document is just a series of images. Is there a way to export a PSD to a PDF and retain the text blocks?  This would be very helpful in that the PDF can be indexed, or so that the Find feature works on the document in Adobe Reader.

InDesign :: Clarity Of Image Colors Is Distorted When Placed In Doc

Apr 8, 2014

I have an EPS file that I am placing in Indesign doc. The image looks great in Illustrator, but in InDesign once placed there is a wave pattern to the colours (like an old tv) – not a smooth gradient. Is this a color profile problem? Or issues with how to maintain a vector image quality when importing into indesign? Upon export to PDF, again the EPS file exports fine, but  InDesign export the colors aren't smooth (see sample images). The color is formatted for print (Fogra 39) for both.
 changing the working space to setting for print in InDesign. Under “placed content” should keep existing  assignments, enable all profiles, disable all profiles be selected?

Photoshop :: Reducing Image To Less Than 30k

Nov 1, 2013

For a website, my avatar must be less than 100px square and less than 30k of page weight. I'm having a terrible time doing this without the photo being a blurry mess once uploaded. The first two photos are relatively heavy because they've been edited, so I thought I'd try a photo that hasn't been messed with. I notice that even that photo, at 72ppi and 100px is still over 100k in weight. It will probably also be a mess

Photoshop :: Reducing Using Image Size

Jan 10, 2009

I read somewhere that in Photoshop you should reduce images in steps, but never in one big step. For example, if you had an original 3200 pixels wide, you should first reduce it to 3100 pixels wide, then 3000, then 2900, and so on, down to about 2000; then, if your target is 800 pixels, you may increase the interval.

Does this rule of thumb still hold true in CS4? I've tried one-step reductions, and these tired old eyes could not tell the difference ...

Photoshop :: Reducing And Enlarging An Image

Mar 26, 2009

I've got a sewing pattern that was drawn by hand. It's larger than a standard sheet of printer paper (maybe 14"x20" or so). I scanned it in two pieces and matched those up, then used the pen tool to trace around the original pattern and stroked the path. Now I need to reduce the whole thing in such a way that if someone else were to download the file and enlarge it by the same amount (or trace around it with X amount of added space all around) it would match my original pattern. (Gee, does that make sense? I hope I explained it right.) I have tried changing the image size, saving it as a new file, and then opening that new file and enlarging the image size by the same amount I reduced it, but when I print it (just allowing the lines to go off the edges of the paper since it's too big), it doesn't match my original.

Photoshop :: Reducing Multiple Image Sizes In One Go

Oct 12, 2004

I have a whole directory of images which I took with my digital camera. I want to post them on my site, however I would like to reduce their size to fit the html pages. I know how to perform this task for individual photos, but since my directory consists of many images, this task will be very time consuming.

I was wondering if there is any way to have photoshop make the same image
size reduction on all images, by running some sort of script or any other way.
If there is such a way, does photoshop also save the new smaller images?

Photoshop Elements :: Reducing Image Size Loses Sharpness

Jan 3, 2014

I have a background that has 8.5" x 11" external dimensions.  In the project bin, I'm also showing a layer (with transparent edges) that I've resized to 1" x 1.5".  When I double-click the background to put it on the screen, and then drag the layer  onto the screen, why doesn't it look like a small picture on top of a big one?  Instead, it's huge, and I have to drag it down to size with the move tool!
And now, the entire story:
Running PSE9 under Mac OS X 10.6.8 Snow Leopard.
My project is a montage of stamp-sized images on a letter-size background, as in the attached -- commemorating the woman in the centerpiece.  I've stumbled though this kind of effort before with great success.  This time the small photos are coming out blurry, and it's because this time I've done one thing differently.
In prior efforts, I recall somehow reducing the outside dimensions of an open file to about 2" x 3" before editing and finally adding it as a layer to the big background (using Move Tool to size it to fit), although during editing I was working with a reasonably-sized image and not a stamp (probably using command +).  The images in the final version were all sharp.   On this effort, however, cannot remember how to do it the same way, and I ended up working with the original photo, and then when I added it as a layer, I reduced it using the move tool -- very clumsy in view of the fact that the edited layer's image seemed to be larger than the canvas I was building, and the final images were blurry.

GIMP :: Indexed Mode Is Reducing Image To Only 2 Colors

Jul 13, 2012

I created a new palette in gimp using my original RGB image (containing shades of yellow and black) which gave me about ~200 colors (with interval=2 in Import dialog). Then I changed the mode from RGB to Indexed using the palette I created above, but the resulting image contains only 2 colors - black and yellow. All the dark-greys, light-greys and different yellows are absent.

I want my indexed image to resemble the RGB as much as possible but the result looks disastrous.

Photoshop :: Resolution And Clarity...

Feb 7, 2006

I have been doing a lot of work on posters (24x36) and banners (usually 96x24). Both the banners and posters are viewed closely (within 5 feet) and need a good resolution for viewing and clarity. However, I have been working at full size with these images (24x36 @ 300ppi) and it can become painfully slow to do this. Do you have any suggestions for reducing the file size (or resolution size) to make the work process quicker without losing quality?

Photoshop :: Thumbnail Clarity

Dec 25, 2007

I am resizing images for thumbnaills. They need to match existing thumbnails in a little gallery. I sized them exactly like the existing thumbnails, but the image content looks smaller. I looked at every setting I could think of and couldn't figure out how to enlarge the content of the thumbnail. I have attached both images so you can see my problem. I am not artistic so I don't know how to minipulate perspective.
