I'm annoyed with this behaviour since forever, so its time to ask: why Photoshop change edges colours when there's clearly absolutely no reason to do so? Here is an example: I'm dealing with the logo from my firm, plain squares, straight pixels.
Its a colorbar in a sofa shape.
As you can see below, the edges are really hard, no smoothing whatsoever.
Now, I want to turn this into a square like this:
Looks almost fine.
But when I zoom in:
I know it is supposed to help optical viewing and stuff, works great for photos, thats the name of the software, ok. But guess what? I don't want that now.
Is there any way of turning this behaviour off?
PS: I have a vector version of the logo and I know how to do that in Illustrator, but I'm asking for a philosophical reason (and for the glory of Satan).
