I want to size down an already small rasterized layer in Photoshop. I notice that Photoshop distorts the layer by applying anti-aliasing after the resizing is applied. During the resizing, when we can mess around with the resize handles, the anti-aliasing is not rendered and the layer looks exactly the way I want it.
Is there a way to stop PS from applying the anti-aliasing after the "apply" button is pressed?
I've attached a snapshot to explain what I mean. Notice that star labeled
after has anti aliasing applied, which the same star, this time labeled
during looks more jagged.
