Photoshop :: Resize (reduction) Image And Maintain Sharpness

Jul 5, 2013

hat is the best way to resize (reduction) an image and maintain the image sharpness. The image I have is a high resolution 500 x 500 pixel logo with a text which I have the Adobe Illustrator (AI) vector file.

I need to resize the image to as small as 130 x 40 pixels and export to gif.

I have tried the following methods:Photoshop Resize > Resample Image > Bicubic Sharper (best for reduction)Create a 130 x 40 pixel Photoshop file and copied object from AI to Photoshop as a smart object and export as gifCreate a 130 x 40 pixel AI file and export to gif . However, I tried to view the image from my mobile phone (iPhone), it is not sharp even though I have created from the vector ai file.

I research on the internet and find out that I can actually create a double size image and use CSS to control (divided dimension by 2) so that the sharpness can be maintained. However, I do not have control of the site html/css hence I can't use the method.

Any other way to resize (reduction) an image and maintain the sharpness.

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.

3ds Max :: Image Sharpness In 1080 25P Area?

Jun 10, 2013

Normally i do camera work and edit in Pre, Ae with all the trimmings. I recently got into 3d work with the plugin that video copilot provides and now that my colleague is on holiday i'd figure i'd play around with his 3dmax and plugins. So i made an explosion in FumeFX and in itself it works fine but the "Kaboom" needs to move towards the viewers at home. This works but the smoke loses its sharpness as it progresses towards the camera.
What do i need to do here? In AE i can adjust the DOF of the camera layer and also the aperture. i'm not finding this in 3dsmax. I have positioned the camera within the area of the explosion and it should be inside the bounding box but i'm not sure. I used the standard track camera with the little target box. Didnt change a thing to the default settings.
I'm gonne try and cheat by exporting it twice as big as normal HD and the scaling it down.

Photoshop :: Combine Monotone Image Onto Gray Scale Image To Use In Indesign File

Nov 13, 2012

I'm trying to combine a monotone image onto a grayscale image to use in my Indesign file. The whole job has to print two colors.
How can I easily make the diaper a PMS color and add it to the grayscale baby and still maintain two colors (PMS + K)
Right now, I'm cheating and combining the PMS diaper onto the grayscale baby in Indesign..... but I really need to have this in Photoshop so I can add shadows to make it more convincing. I tried converting the grayscale to CMYK and deleting all channels but black, didn't work as it took away all the information from the image. 
See image below.

Photoshop :: Noise And Sharpness When View Files In Bridge?

Apr 9, 2013

I am a CS6 user, good but not advanced.  I recently upgraded from a Nikon D3 to a D4.  When viewing D4 files in Bridge after downloading the images (files) appear to contain a lot of noise and to be unsharpe; they appear sharp on the LCD screen on the camera.  I believe I have set my preferences properly.  When the files are opened in CR or CS6 the noise seems to go away and sharpness is normal; the images print up tack sharp.

Lightroom :: 4.1 (64bit) Loss Of Sharpness?

Sep 20, 2012

I have converted to jpg some .nef from my D800 with Lightroom 4.1 at max sharpening, 150, with Capture NX 2.3.4 with max sharpening set in picture style settings only and ViewNX2 2.5.1 with max sharpening set in picture style only. Have played with other settings in "details box" of LR4.1, radius, details and masking, but the result is about the same. Please, look at this two photos, converted with CaptureNX 2.3.4 and LR 4.1: at bottom the loss of details is noticeable(the palm, the street lamp). With ViewNX2 have the same result.

Fortunately, it does not happen with all the photos, but happens. Happens in particular with the dark photos and night shots. That it is not a matter of contrast.
Converted with LR 4.1, only sharpening and camera setting picture style:[url]......

Photoshop :: Scale An Image To Actual Size?

Jan 29, 2009

I often use the Crop Tool to get part of an image to print at actual size.

For example, Crop: Width 7cm @ Resolution 600 pixels/inch (same as my
printer), then select a known width of 7cm then crop and print.

I figure there must be a way without actually cropping the image, perhaps by selecting the known dimension.
