Card images

Post by Labdad » Fri Mar 25, 2005 12:00 pm

I am having trouble keeping an image sharp on the face cards. Any ideas on how to resize an image and keep it looking good? I use psp8 to edit. Thanks!

Sharpen images in PSP

Post by Kim » Sun Jul 31, 2005 3:52 pm

You can try sharpening the image after you resize it in PSP. When you reduce the size of the original image, it tends to get a little out of focus. To sharpen the image, go to "Affects" on the toolbar, then to "Sharpness". From there you can choose "Sharpen" or "Sharpen More". If you don't like the results, you can always Undo them. Also, if you sharpen the image too much, it tends to get grainy.

One trick for resizing images in general is to do it in steps.

So lets say you have a 500x500 image and you want to make it 300x300, resize it to 400x400 1st. to a sharpen it a bit, then go to 300x300.
