I'm using a crop tool (or marquee tool, then Image -> Crop) in Photoshop CS4. Immediately after cropping, the quality of anti-aliasing of Smart Object gets noticeably worse.
The blending mode of the smart object is Normal, and the opacity is 100%. I can flatten the image before cropping to preserve the quality, but it's just an inconvenience each time. Is there a way to avoid this loss of quality of Smart Objects when cropping?
