  • Downsizing image in photoshop without sharpening

    What is the best resample method for downsizing picture for web if I want to sharpen the image by my self? Bicubic smoother or Bicubic smooth gradients? Is there a difference between these two options?

    Bicubic Smoother is for upsizing. Bicubic(smooth gradients) is probably better for down sizing without sharpening included.

      I noticed Joey L uses bicubic smoother in his tutorials.

        Bicubic (smooth gradients) is the default, and should work fine. However, much will depend on how much reduction you plan on doing, and how that reduction is accomplished (what method is used).

        Save for Web works well for most images.

            Photoshop's 'Bicubic Sharper': good for you?
            by kkamin
            I've been trained to use Bicubic Sharper when reducing an image in size. What I don't like is that is seems to over-sharpen my images, especially when I am going to a web resolution of around 500x333. I have been sticking with Bicubic (the default setting), and doing the standard, last step sharpening...

            Hello everyone,

            Does anyone have any experience using Photoshop cc 2017 and the the filter Shake Reduction? I need to start using it for a restoration job I am just about completing.

            USM Filter Basics: Sharpening increases the contrast at the edges of an image, ie, makes the dark pixels darker and the light pixels lighter. USM has three controls...

            Sharpening Images

            I recently posted a thread asking for advice on improving contrast within materials in architectural retouching. I was given some good advice and recommended some plug in filters as well as the high pass filter in conjunction with overlay. This was all very helpful and I have implemented some of these...

            Sharpness/Resolution/Resizing/Confusion
            by keliot
            Hello.
            I am getting conflicting and confusing information regarding resizing software being able to increase resolution of the image. If the image is resized up and "new detail" is extracted but then downsampled then the resolution will increase and will this new detail now make an...
