    Now I understand the reason beyond using the Place option (under the heading file) it's for the purposes of keeping the quality of the photos pixels in tact rather then at the hands of the default measures of Elements. What a wonderful tip to know an understand. Thank you George.

    • @HTGGeorge
      @HTGGeorge  11 หลายเดือนก่อน

      You are welcome Peggy! The place command is also a great way to protect images brought into projects since they come in as smart object layers. If you later need to use filters on that layer just right click and simplify.

    Excellent, George. Like febeleven, I tend to forget about Place Image. Where necessary, I always, before taking any action whatsoever, convert the dpi to 300. But I must remember Place Image!!

    • @HTGGeorge
      @HTGGeorge  11 หลายเดือนก่อน

      I also tend to ignore Place when making projects, but then most of my projects are for the Internet where the resolution isn't as critical. If I was doing images for print I would use Place every chance I had to keep the quailty up.

    You're the best George. I usually do the resizing before I put it on a new background. I usually forget about the "Place Image".
    So I noticed in the "Image" "Resize Image", you had "Scale Styles" checked {I always have Constrain Proportion & Resample Image checked} so what is/does the "Scale Size" do to the image? Thanks!

    • @HTGGeorge
      @HTGGeorge  11 หลายเดือนก่อน +1

      If you have any layer styles applied to the image, like a drop shadow, then that will get resized along with the image. If that is unchecked then the size of the style effect would not change when you change the size of the image. So you will usually want that box checked.

    I was told PPI was just making a difference in for printing, now I see the difference.

    • @HTGGeorge
      @HTGGeorge  11 หลายเดือนก่อน +1

      Screen images are much smaller than printed images so it does have a big impact on printing. I always work at 300ppi to keep the detail better. Then if I need an image for the web, like the thumbnail for this video, I just convert it to jpg and Photoshop Elements automatically scales it down to 72ppi.

    Please could you do an indepth on Soft Proofing for printing in Affinity or Elements. By the way if you 1/2 the side length it is only 1/4 the size, that is the inverse square law for us old timers as used in calculating flash exposure.

    Hi George, Thank you so much, I've learned so much from you. Question on this though: I'm understanding the basic concepts but have a specific problem. In trying to meet size specifications for electronic images for my club's competition (just for fun, no monetary prize) when I resize an image that is tack sharp at, say, 6 MB and 4000x3000, to an image that is 2 MB max with pixels maxed at 1920 wide x1080 tall, much resolution is lost, especially in details such as eyes. My current method is Resize, making sure pixels per inch is 300 (at minimum), then typing in the pixel dimensions in the boxes. I see all of the other choices such as resample, and then the bicubic stuff but am confused by those. Any ideas how to go about this so I don't lose resolution when reducing the image? I'm using PS Elements 2021, by the way. Thank you!

    • @HTGGeorge
      @HTGGeorge  7 หลายเดือนก่อน

      HI, sad news is you will always lose resolution if you resize an image. The trick is to not make that resolution loss noticable. If you increase the resolution then Photoshop Elements has to add in new pixels that didn't exist before, thereby loss of detail. If you reduce the resolution Photoshop Elements has to toss out pixels, again loss of resolution. In PSE try using the different options in Resize and see which one gives you the best results. I have heard that there are some great AI solutions for doing this where the AI is much better at handling the pixel change than regular paint programs but I haven't made a good survey of those yet, so no specific recommendations.

    • @user-uy8tg6qb2r
      @user-uy8tg6qb2r 7 หลายเดือนก่อน

      OK, thank you! I also use Topaz Gigapixel (and DeNoise & Sharpen, all amazing) and sometimes if I upsize the original image first then reduce it's better, but not always, particularly bird eyes when the bird is a bit far away (the usual). Though I've been known to "lasso" just the eye and use PSE auto sharpen which helps a bit. I've also been known to brighten the pixels containing the "catch light" of the eye and also brighten the overall eye if it blends in with the feathers too much.@@HTGGeorge

    This information is critical for resizing.
    I did not know this.
    Very informative!
    I thought 300 was 300
    Especially when downsizing 😮 what an eye opener to change.
    Okay, you open a photo and want to print. Most likely you will be doing some cropping. Does this change everything again?

    • @HTGGeorge
      @HTGGeorge  11 หลายเดือนก่อน

      Cropping won't affect this. Also as with everything else, this really depends on the photo. Some photos don't need complete detail, or going this extra mile won't make a noticeable difference. Generally I like to work in 300ppi mode and place images that are important. For my TH-cam thumbnails I never bother to place since they don't need that level of detail.

      All existing videos will be staying where they are. Nothing will be lost. Unfortunately there is no way to move old videos from one channel to another on TH-cam so the old stuff stays put. But all new videos will be over on HTG Photo

    I just saw your video where you recommend E+ (ElementsPlus) to create Smart Objects. This video about resizing doesn't mention Smart Objects. Is this an older video? Or did I misunderstand Smart Objects? I trying to restore very old scanned photos that are around 2"X3" . What settings do you recommend for the Pixel settings?

    • @HTGGeorge
      @HTGGeorge  7 หลายเดือนก่อน

      In the one video I was talking about Elements Plus, most of my videos don't use Elements Plus since most people don't have that installed. In PSE Smart Objects are mostly useful just to protect layers, but you can accomplish the exact same thing by making a copy of the layer and hiding the copy. The Pixel setting depends on your final use, if you are only using the images for viewing online then I would go for 72ppi and leave the image at 2"x3". If you are going for print output I would enlarge the image to 4"x"6 and increase the resolution to 300ppi.

      @@HTGGeorge I purchased E+ and I’m struggling with it. When I edit very old pictures, I have to zoom in and out a great deal of times. I was under the impression that doing this would result in loss of resolution. Saving the original won’t help because I would have to zoom in an out a bunch of times again. Am I missing something?

    When I edit a photo and email it back to my phone, the image is blurry when you zoom in on different people in the photo. What do I need to do to prevent this from happening again?

    • @HTGGeorge
      @HTGGeorge  5 หลายเดือนก่อน

      Whenever you manipulate a photo you will be losing some image information, no way around that. You can try using a sharpening filter to make things look a bit better. Also if you convert the image from a high resolution setting like 300ppi to a lower resolution by converting to jpg which is at 72ppi you will be losing a lot of image quality. Basically, the further you are away from your original image the more image quality will be lost. In most cases this isn't an issue, but if you need to zoom in on someones face then you need to keep that in mind, manipulation will lose detail.
