I noticed that when rotating an object in Photoshop the preview of the image has nice and crisp pixels, but when I rotate the image and finish the transformation it adds an annoying blur. Is it possible to disable that or find a good workaround?

The carrot stays nice and pixelated in the preview.

But it ends up being blurred when I confirm the transformation.

  • Seems to be something called transform Image Interpolation, but I cant figure out where the setting is or if it is 100% the same issue as I am having. graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/41588/… I would like to know how to get what is shown in this post...

  • I had a problem like this recently. Mine was because the original object itself was too small. Maybe try resizing the object before rotating. Apr 4, 2019 at 10:41

When transforming, before accepting the transformation change the interpolation at the top menu to Nearest Neighbor:
