Is it a sin to down-res?
I've suddenly realised that I can down-scale the image by a third or more, and it'll still be more than print-quality for a magazine spread. And I cut my work load in half. He says he trusts me, and that I must do whatever is best for workflow.
IS THIS A BAD IDEA? I mean, these images are never gonna be billboards, and I'm flying though them now.
Re: Is it a sin to down-res?
I think it just depends on how the skin or the whole picture looks like after downscaling.
I never did anything like that, but I guess I would just downscale the picture and compare it with the original HiRes in equal Zoom-Stages or crops in Photoshop, just to find out if (and which) details are lost.
My guess is that with fine details, like hair, it could be a problem if there isn´t enough resolution or pixels left to display them clear enough.
And I could imagine that downscaling has some kind of sharpening effect on some details.
If there´s no difference in the result, I´d downscale, of course.
