Resizing walkabouts using PS CS4
«: September 04, 2009, 05:03:40 PM»
How do I make an avatar/walkabout smaller using Adobe Photoshop CS4 without distorting the lines and colour scale?
24 beers in a case, 24 hours in a day -- coincidence?... I don't think so.

The only way I know of off the top of my head is if you resize it in free transform, screenshot the results and work off that instead of letting the resize algorithm run upon accepting the transform changes. You can move the rotary point and get the outside edges away from the actual part you want to resize by dropping some stray pixels on the same layer a ways away from the main figure.

There may be a better way, but I've never bothered to look for it.

I'm completely new to PS so I have no idea what you just said. Could you please explain in lamens terms and/or with the use of pictures. (I'm a visual learner.)

Not working. Everytime I resize the image, it gets blurred and the colours are distorted.

Are you applying the transform or does it appear that way even before you apply the transform? The whole point is screenshotting the image before you apply the transform (that is, before you click away from the image and accept the dialog that asks you whether or not you want to apply the transform). It should look exactly like my third image when you take the screenshot, and it will be automatically antialiased if you apply the transform, which is what you're not supposed to do. I went and checked to see if it was different on CS4, and it's not.

Yes, I have been screen shotting it.

Post it here so I can see what's going wrong.

Rather than screenshot it, go to Edit > Preferences > General > Image Interpolation. Choose "Nearest Neighbor (preserve hard edges)" from that drop-down list. Then you should have no problem with it getting blurry when you accept the transformation. However, you'll need to do a LOT of cleanup afterwards.
