110% Image Resample Macro
Tutorial Category: Photoshop
Resizing an image to a larger size isn’t hard but the results are far from perfect. The image quality is reduced because the program is trying to fill in pixels that weren’t there in the first place. Well there are a few things you can do to keep that quality. To make it easier, let’s make it a macro so you can use it over and over again!
Go to your Actions palette and click the “Create new action” button at the bottom.
Give your new action a name like “110% Resampling” and save it under Images Effects. Now click Record.
Everything you do now will be recorded by the program. Select the menu option “Image” and then select “Image Size” and set the following options (ignore the pixel dimensions):
We’re done with recording so click the “Stop Recording” option at the bottom of your Actions palette.
Now you’re ready to use it! Open up a picture you’d like to increase in size. Go to your Actions palette and click on the “110% Resampling” and then click the “Play” option at the bottom.
Now you have a quick and easy way to increase the size of your images without a large loss in quality. You can click on the play option over and over again until you get the desired size. Enjoy!
