Resizing Images While Keeping Resolution

Apr 30, 2008
When you resize a large, sharp photo to a smaller size you may find that the new image has lost its sharpness. This is a common problem with changing the size of large, clear images. The blurry look can detract from the quality of the image.

Fortunately Adobe Photoshop has the ability to fix this issue with its advanced editing tools.

To perform this function you must own at least the CS version of Photoshop. If you don't have this version, you may want to get it as it has far advanced features. Buying the software will get rid of the limitations you may have when editing your pictures.

To make an image smaller go to Image> Image Size> Resample Image. Choose Bicubic Sharper from the resulting menu. This setting will minimize any blur that occurs when resizing the image.

If you want to enlarge a photograph without losing too much resolution select the Bicubic Smoother.

This method is extremely effective in keeping the sharpness of the image. You can set this as the default to make things easy for you by going to Preferences> General where you will see Image Interpolation. Select Bicubic Sharper as the default choice and it will be set as the default from now on.

Remember that performing more than one resize on an image will give it more blur. To experiment with the size that you want, use a duplicate image as multiple resizing will ruin the original image. Once you've found the size you want, you can apply the dimensions to the original image.
