    Thanks for the video, though not quite what I was hoping for given the title. How does one increase an image *beyond* 100% without losing quality? I think that's what most people who click this video are probably interested in. Cheers.

    • @pixelandbracket
      @pixelandbracket  6 ปีที่แล้ว +31

      you are exactly right. the problem is that beyond 100%... quality loss is unavoidable. there's a grey area, maybe between 100-125% that the image is still acceptable (depending on the format/publication). HOWEVER, there are some techniques to help cover up some of the quality loss (surface blur, unsharp mask, etc). based on the popularity of this tutorial and the number of people searching for ways to increase quality I definitely plan on recording a tutorial showing a few of those processes. thanks for the comment though Scott, I'll let you know when I release that video!

      ​@@pixelandbracket I think many people would find a succinct yet comprehensive tutorial like this very useful. The infinite complexity and power of the tools PS / AI offer, can make lower-res images 'workable' -- though the process can be daunting.
      Many freelance and amateur designers (like myself) simply lack the time or experience to properly enlarge/vectorize the lo-res images we get from clients. Creating a tutorial(s) that shows the process, then optimum 'starting settings' for general use, then continues with tweaking examples by displaying how each tool works would be invaluable.

      You can also start with a picture, NOT size it down, and then no pixelation will occur. Then try NOT enlarging it, so nothing happens to your pixels.

      Resizing photos in Photoshop documents while creating composites is an incredibly common process

    • @thethomasboy
      @thethomasboy 5 ปีที่แล้ว +1

      @@DianaVBV Bwahahaa... is THAT what you think I (and others) are doing?
      You are technically correct, tho: Reducing an image's resolution -- only to re-enlarge -- would be silly, not to mention redundant. If only clients understood how raster images work...

    This tutorial shows you how to use smart objects to retain the full quality of your images while adjusting them in Photoshop. I think some people might be looking for a way to enlarge a low quality photo to make a high quality one, but that's simply not possible. Images are made up of pixels and there are only so many to work with. If you resize a low quality image, it will look pixelated. Photoshop can only do so much interpolation based on the surrounding pixels. You can add sharpening and blur effects, but at the end of the day it's not a high quality photo. As a professional designer, you will need to find a better photo, sadly there's no magic bullet.

    • @LORDSofCHAOS333
      @LORDSofCHAOS333 3 ปีที่แล้ว +3

      Yeah but in a way those are also the limit's of the photo quality as well.
      If the photo or image has at least 300 DPI it will be okay for prints and no matter what size we print it .
      In some parts it will alweys look bad like blurry or not crispy .
      I only can wish to see the day when we find a way to rezie it no matter in what size and never lose the same quality .

      The only way you can upscale an image or video without quality loss is with an AI upscaler. I use Gigapixel for photos. Works like a charm.

    Thank you, I am near tears. I had a very nostalgic snapshot of my now deceased mother. Unfortunately the only copy of that image was 72 resolution (pulled from Facebook archives)..
    I desperately needed/wanted too be able to print to a 20x60. I had tried many things such as printing it out then scanning it back in as a slightly larger size.

    For those who don't know: you don't have to have the image saved on your PC. You can just Right-click any image and click Convert to Smart Object!
    I didn't want to have all images in my document saved on my pc so looked into it and found it's that simple.
    However, @Pixel & Bracket, do you maybe know of some downsides to this? Just curious, since maybe there is a reason why it's not mentioned in the video.
