If these images don't already have a 1:1 (square) aspect ratio, then scaling to a 1:1 aspect ratio will distort the image. You may have to crop them to the desired aspect ratio first. Cropping could be recorded as an action and run as a batch, but this would apply the same crop to every image, and that may not be what you want. You may have to crop them ...

This is going unnoticed but I have a feeling that the SCALE DOWN command is blurring a lot more than it should. This wasn't the default behaviour of GIMP in older versions. So there is definitely a problem with this software. We all know that scaling an image renders its properties lost but this isn't the case here. There is something wrong with GIMP 2.10 ...

By measuring your output file and looking at the ruler in the screenshot, I can see that you have created a document with the dimensions 270x380 px. With ordinary preview ...

My two cents. I must say that I was a little obsessed with the topic, but not that much anymore. I do not use "third-party" tools for optimizing file weight, I do not feel it is really necessary because you already have Ps. I. A test method Let me spam you with an old test I did several years ago. It is in Spanish, please use google translate for now. ...

So you have to process the final file again. whenever you resize an image you're essentially creating a new file. The color table might change, the pixel color at a specific ...

I think what happens is that your Photoshop is configured to always open JPEG files in Camera Raw. Your Camera Raw is apparently configured to change the resolution of images to 240 ppi, so when you hit Open the resolution of your image changes from whatever it was to 240 ppi. The image itself hasn't changed. It's still the exact same pixels, but since the ...

I was running into a similar problem but just found a solution, in case anyone finds this useful. In short, Layers seem to sample from outside the canvas when resized, therefore introducing transparency to the border pixels, but Background Layers don't suffer from this artifact. You can convert a single Layer to a Background Layer by selecting it and going ...

Documents which vary in resolution (PPI) will show variations in sizes when moving things between them. Ensure both documents are set to the same PPI. In addition, you will want to uncheck Resize Images During Place in the Preferences (General).
