Thumbnails on the web are not the original image. Or at least they shouldn't be. You do not "enlarge" thumbnails to create full version images. You work the other way around. Start with a large higher resolution image, then crop or resize to create the thumbnail image. You should always work high quality to low quality, not the other way around.

I'm assuming you will use Adobe Photoshop to make this work. So here are the steps for it: Open a new template. Write the word Mummy on the new layer. Now drag and drop the image you want to bring over the text in this template. After bringing the image, right click on the layer of the image and click on "Create Clipping Mask". The image will now be in ...

Images will always be constrained to pixels per inch, so it is important to take into consideration screen sizes to screen resolution in determining how large your images will appear on various devices and the quality they will be displayed at. High definition: 600 pixels per inch (ppi) Standard definition: 300ppi Medium-Low res: 150ppi Low res: 72ppi

Photoshop allows downsampling to an arbitrary number of colors -- but it will be saved in the image's native color mode (RGB, or at least as Indexed color). The PNG file format allows 2-bit grayscale, and in Photoshop's Save For Web dialog you can set the maximum number of allowed colors. I'd have to test if Photoshop indeed creates a 2-bit grayscale, ...

2 bit images 2 bit images are not 2 color images. 2 bits would store 4 colors. Currently the png file format allow several bit depths http://www.w3.org/TR/PNG/#11IHDR. Some good years ago the CGA color mode for monitors displayed a Cyan Magenta Black and White images. Those were 2 bit images. You could convert them to Red Green Black and Yellow. That ...

As far as I know, there's no site that collects sets of images just for the use in collages. There are two main types of collages: one where only a few images are used in a particular format to create a layout or shape and one where a whole lot of images are put together to create another image. For the first type, the content is more important than the ...

To answer your question, yes, you can manipulate an image using brightness alone to have overlaid text legible. If your text is white, you'll want to lower the brightness and if it is black, increase the brightness. Saturation will increase/decrease the amount of color in the image and hue will change the overall make-up of color in the image. So you may ...

In Photoshop, select Image>Image Size... In the Image Size dialog, first uncheck "Resample Image," then set your document width to 9". (width will change to 13.454, and resolution will bump up to 323.33). Then crop the height down to 12" and you're done.

You can and probably should cut the image up into tiles. This allows your gane to load each segment separately into the graphics cards memory. But as a side effect it makes texturing easier for you. PS before you go on make sure your game engine wont choke on your texture size. Many gfx systems have a 8k texture limit. (altough it could have several of ...

I am not an expert on game developement. But an image 28712x27744 as 8 bit RGB tif is about 2.2 Gigabytes in Photoshop. I created a test image. On the Mac Os it is 2.4 G on the disk. I was able to open it in Gimp but it took a while. The image crashed the filter plug-in I tried to use. I think GIMP has issues with large file sizes. You might try to find ...

Use the Direct Selection tool (shortcut A) and then delete. Or the vector is either masked or grouped and you can right-click on the vector and either release or ungroup. If you do that enough you can select the background and then delete.

I'm wondering if there's a biological reason for this. Nope. Film (photographic as well as motion picture) have come in all sorts of aspect ratios. 1:1, 4:3, 3:2, 16:9, etc. Many of these aspect ratios formed prior to defacto standards. With photos, the 35mm format became a defacto standard (3:2) and there's been a few different major defacto film ...

Depending on whether you want different-sized images to fit different-sized boxes or if all the images and image boxes are the same size, things could change a lot in this type of workflow. Pasting ±135 images into InDesign doesn't seem like a lot of work, though (imagine making a 200 page catalog with 10 products per page). So, it's actually very quick to ...

A good "strategy" would be to search for a picture that has been taken in front of a solid colour background (maybe some websites with photographic resources like 123RF or fotolia offer search based on transparency or background colours). You would then be able to remove the background colour in Photoshop, save it as a .PSD file, and include it in your ...

This might also be worth a look... https://developers.google.com/speed/pagespeed/ I've used PageSpeed in the past. It'll test load pages from your site, and offer generally helpful suggestions for speeding up the load times. As others have pointed out - image optimization can also help greatly. On the Mac - I use ImageOptim ... really like the results. ...

Probably the initial step is more planning than Photoshop's. 1) Do I need an image file? Or can I use something else Background-color. A css gradient. 2) Do I need that file dimensions? or can I use A lower dimension upscaled. Mask the low resolution with something? a pattern over it, a blur, darken it. A pattern. Is the image really worth it to have ...

Before delivering your final website design, you really should optimise the images with tools that are more focused towards and dedicated to optimising images. Photoshop does okay, but I've seen many people comment that other tools do a better job. From what I hear, ImageMagick is pretty good for this purpose. However, as a command-line-noob I need to spend ...

From my experience, if you take the 'Saving for Web' routine from Photoshop, this will optimize the image for web. Despite this, you'll still see optimization alerts when testing page speed, but just look at the kb of optimization you will achieve. In most cases it is around 1~5kb. I agree with Scott that you shouldn't get obsessed with page speed. If you ...
