  • Resizing images

    Why is it that when I tried to my friend computer and I tried to change the image size of a small image to bigger image size there appeared no blots or less pixels? I thought resizing it makes it less clearer? Is it bec. they use PANTONE? ALthough I have no idea what PANTONE is cuz i don't know use color management?In the attach letter pls. give me ideas how to change the white border around the first circle so that it will be same as the black one on the next circle? bec. I can't use air brush sometimes it juswt overlaps. Thanks for reading this.

    Pantone inks are inks that are used in Printing mainly garfield, really unless you have a deep interest in print media then I would steer clear of their uses. Rest assured that it has no meaning in relation to the increasing image size.

    As for your cirlce dillemma do the following:

    Press Q on the keyboard to enable quick mask, with a paintbrush cover over the white highlight in the centre of coloured circle.

    Press Q again and you will see marching ants appear around the white highlight, this means that it is now protected.

    Choose, Select>Colour Range. You will notice that an eyedropper tool is now selected. Click on the white border that you want to get rid of, and press delete.

    You may have to play around with the sliders in the Colour Range to get the desired result - but its only by experimenting and going wrong a few times that you will learn anything

    good luck

      This depends on how much bigger you make it. if you make it a little bit bigger, sometimes you don't see pixels. If you make it a lot bigger, you will see them.

      Also, sometimes if you make a picture bigger, it will still look good on your screen (monitor), but not if you print it.

        Image size - lack of understanding
        by Ambrosie
        I have been an infrequent user of Photoshop 3 for over 10 years. From time to time I become aware that I have never fully understood some of the basics. One of these appears to be the matter of image size (height and width).

        To do the simple jobs I generally use Photshop for, I don't...

        How do I make this image bigger without losing quality?
        by garfield
        I would like to ask a question. How do I make this image bigger but at the same time not lose the quality? I just found this at google and its background is good for the mastermind game that we plan to make, because if I resize it, it just blurs. Also how do i change the background here? I'm hoping...

        size and resolution
        by vickatter
        Hi!

        First Question:
        I'm a little mixed up with the way I can increase a file size.
        I had to do a few posters yesterday and I needed a final file of 70x100cm in 200dpi. The thing is that the pictures that I was using were a little smaller than that, so somebody at the studio...

        Image resizing vs image resampling
        by santoro80
        When should check or uncheck the "resampling" option in image size dialog box? If I'm chaning the document size for the print I should uncheck the resampling option, right?
