Pictures become pixelated when downsizing

Recommended Posts

@MichaelMeeuwissen Of course images become pixelated, since you're resizing them there to sizes like 56 x 42 pixels.
You might want to resample them instead (via Document > Resize document menu).

Also notice it's a pixel layer, not an image layer - thus the way you're resizing them is destructive.

Hey MichaelMeeuwissen,

Previous versions you could downsize it  without getting pixelated 

Which previous version? There was a bug in the earlier versions of 1.7 where the Export Persona would be incorrectly displaying objects as vector objects.

Designer and Publisher will only pixelate the image layer once it has been resized and rasterised as it will initially use a vector view, but Photo will always be displaying objects in a raster format, regardless if it is an image layer or shape etc.

Hi MichaelMeeuwissen,
Try to resize the image of the face used in your first post in the previous version of Photo that you think doesn't pixelate. You will see the results are the same and the face becomes pixelated there too. The video you posted above resizing the balloons is a little misleading because the image characteristics are quite different (detailed face/clean ballon) as well as the amount of resizing you performed.
