Re: Resizing a PSD-They're lossy!

There are a number of programs available to upsize an image that do a good job. I just switched to Blow Up by Alien Skin for use with my artwork. Of course the image has to be good to start. The old cliché "garbage in - garbage out" still applies.

Re: Resizing a PSD-They're lossy!


OK, I can easily start with a bigger image, they are huge files.

I think I know what happened now. I picked up some files to re-do. I was unconcerned with whether hey'd been resized previously, since I've never seen any degradation on the resized images. The reason I hadn't is because my originals were huge so I didn't notice the degradation, but it was there.

Is there any such thing as a non-lossy file type? Dang, I though PSD's were non-lossy. Silly me.

Nanls, I like that program. A lot of my stuff is bright on a white background.

Live Picture had a non-lossy file for anything that was created from scratch, but that's going waaaaay back...
