Resize An Image Without Losing Quality?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

First time poster, long time viewer.  I decided to pick up Affinity Photo the other day and I am really unfamiliar with it.

 

When I try to resize an image, the quality drops off a lot and it looks blurry and distorted.

 

Anyone have advice how to correcT this?

 

I appreciate any help.

 

Thanks!

Hi iRahz,

 

Welcome,

 

How are you resizing your image? is it by exporting from Photo?

Hi Allan,

 

Thanks for you response.

 

I open an image in Affinity Photo. I then want to resize it, so I go to Document - Resize Document - And choose the size I like.

 

But after it resizes, the quality becomes terrible.

 

Perhaps I am doing something wrong? If there is a different way to resize an image, please do share. I'm all ears!

 

Thanks again

Most likely, you are using Nearest Neighbor (default) resizing. Try Lanczos non-separated (really, anything will be better than Nearest Neighbor, unless you're doing pixel art ...).

Thanks. How would I change it to Lanczos exactly?
