Photoshop :: Reducing An Image...

Aug 12, 2005

I have a .bmp file that is 20mb that I want to size down for ease of use with SketchUp.
The file is 3223x2200 pix
96 pix/inch

How would I do this without the image distorting radically?

I have only tried to resize the image by changing the width/height.

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 :: 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.

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 :: Reducing Colors?

Jun 3, 2009

I've been working on some pictures that will be printed on T-shirts. The problem is that I've got alot of different color in the pictures which would result in a very expensive print. What I would want to be able to do is to reduce the colors in the pictures to only 4 specific colors (plus black and white). The colors must be very specific. for an example:  "ff2600".  To be totally clear: I need the ALL the different types of yellow into be transformed to just one type of yellow. So my question is am I able to do something like this in photoshop?

Photoshop :: Reducing Resolution For Web Use

Dec 11, 2008

i'm just learning some basic 2d (i work mainly in 3d) and am in the middle of reducing/cropping some of my images so that they fit neatly on a web page. i have a couple of questions:

1. when i reduce (resample) an image, in the resample dialogue there is no easy way to just reduce by a given multiplier (e.g. 0.5) and at the same time, see what the resulting size will be.

for example - i have an image that is 2592*1944 pixels. i would like to be able to enter a multiplier and see what the resulting resolution would be /before/ i commit to the new size. this is possible in a very old version of corel photopaint that i have and so my first question is can this be done in photoshop or do i have to resize elsewhere?

Photoshop :: Reducing Size Of Pic

Nov 23, 2006

I have a cybershot and have it set to 1280 x 960...Fine. The pictures look great but sometimes when I upload to walmart or shutterfly them become pixelated. Or when I use irfanview (PC only program) to resize to something smaller and pixelates them as well.

Should I change the camera settings, if so, to what? Should I use PS to resize them?

Photoshop :: Reducing Levels

Nov 4, 2007

I want to reduce the colour levels in a picture to four, or limit the amount colours of an image to 4 colours.

I have many black and white images and I want to remove all but 4 scales of colour so that I have


Light Grey

Dark Grey


The closest thing I have found is in the filter gallery bu using cut out and reducing the number of levels to 4 the problem is this tends to blurr some of the details as part of the effect whereas I want to maintain the crisp edges of my image so that it just looks flatter

I would also like to know if there is a method to do this and have it somewhat scaleable so I can decide on the range of colours in the current image that would fall into each of the new colour categories so that I can adjust itcase some details are incorporated into say the dark grey layer and they should be black ect?

I'm sure I have seen a very simple feature to reduce the colour range of an image, maybe that was in paint shop pro it was a long time ago.

Photoshop :: Reducing Images

Jul 24, 2004

I've got a 20X20 gif image (72dpi) that I wanted to use as a "logo" on a website. When I post it, however, it expands to an image that is about 1" X 1" and it very pixelated. I've tried converting it to jpg, save for web and just physicially reducing the image to 10X10 etc. and nothing works. It just keeps showing up on the website as a larger pixelated image. What am I doing wrong? I'm just trying to get an image about the size or our emoticons on this site.

Photoshop :: Reducing The Size Of Acrobat PDF

Oct 19, 2013

I have these PDF catalogs which are about 20 - 50MB each.  Some of my customers are not comfortable browsing online so a digital catalog (here) works better for them... The same people generally have bad internet connections so I need to re size these PDF's so they can be downloaded rather quickly.
Starting with a 20MB PDF, I open all slides within Photoshop.  I batch process the images from 300dpi to 96dpi , and shrink the size from 24 Inches across to 15... All the images are saved in a new folder, opened back in Photoshop and a new PDF is created.  Considering both size and dpi has been clipped by a fairly large amount, you would think that the new PDF would be smaller... But its not, the 20MB version ends up around 60MB afterward.
I don't feel like purchasing Acrobat Pro because I know this should work within Photoshop.

Photoshop :: Reducing Size Of Canvas

Sep 22, 2012

I have designed a billboard and used various photos. Due to changes in the positions of the layers, I ended up with a canvas bigger than the photo. So I need to remove the extra canvas. How do I remove the extra canvas?
I can use the marque tool to copy/cut and paste the photo unto a new file, and hence get rid of the extra canvas. If this is the way forward, is there a precise way to get the marquee tool to the edges of the photo? Is there a function to snap the marquee to the edge of the photo?

Photoshop :: How To Save As PDF Without Reducing Resolution

Sep 23, 2013

My card is ready to go at the specified resolution (300 dpi) and dimensions, but whenever I save it as a pdf, it reduces the resolution immensely. The dimensions of the photoshop file are 1062x615, whereas the pdfs (no compression) are always 254x147. The photoshop file, again, is 300 dpi.
The dimensions in inches for both files: 3.54 x 2.05 Obviously 254 pixels across 3.54 inches is not 300 dpi, but I cant figure out why it would do this.

I have been told that you can reduce the number of pixels in a picture, but keep the size of it.I am unsure about this, so I thought I would ask the experts as it were.I do know the JPEG image compression when saving, but is there any way you can specify the number of pixels?

Photoshop :: Reducing Picture Size

Dec 24, 2008

wanted to put all my holiday photos on a picture-sharing site (Photobucket), but it seemed they were too big and it took forever. It was suggested that I reduce their size on Adobe Photoshop and I have downloaded it (Starter Edition 3.2). However, I can't seem to find a facility to do this. What I would really like to do is reduce all of the file sizes at once. Is this possible? Otherwise I will reduce them one by one, but don't know how to do this either.

Photoshop :: Reducing Film Grain

Jul 28, 2004

When you've got a photo which the resolution isnt that great on, you tendt to get this grainy effect. It seems to happen mainly on dark colourslike black. When you zoom in close you can see its made up of various colours. None of which generally tend to be black. Is it possible to get all these coloured pixels roughly the same colour so that you can get a smoother finish.

Ive tried various things like the heal brush, few filters etc but nothing really seems to do the trick.

Photoshop :: Take Away Blurring Effect When Reducing Size

Jan 17, 2013

I created a 1318x358 PNG (300DPI, Anti-Aliasing - Type Optimized) from Illustrator. Now I reduced the image in Photoshop from 1318 to 800 pixels, and it is creating some edge blurring. Look at the image below.
How can I take away that blurring effect when reducing the size? Even if I save it as PNG-24, with highest quality settings, it still does that effect.

Photoshop :: CS6 / Reducing Poly-count Of 3D Models?

Sep 12, 2013

I'm using CS6 (x64, windows), and I'm extruding vectors by a few points to make 3D models of decorative walls for our modelers. They've constantly told me that there are far too many polygons in the models that Photoshop generates (mine are averaging between 20,000 and 30,000) and that even 3DS Max's "optimize" tool can't take it down to a really managable number (generally they only get them down to around 10,000).
Is there a way to reduce the number of polygons in models generated this way in Photoshop? Even the super simple ones that I extrude (with no curves at all) end up containing around 8,000 or 9,000.
