I use Irfanview to resize after everything else.jklofft said:Which tool do you use for resizing? I've been using NC, but I see that many use PS. Does anyone know the pros/cons of each approach? Also what about FM's resize action?
Saw these interesting statements by Thomas Knoll and Chris Cox (Adobe engineer) on Adobe forums:Chris101 said:I resize in stages with Photoshop. First resize is to half the dimension, Bicubic Smoother. then I use Smart Sharpen to bring back the crispness, then a second resize with Bicubic or Bicubic Sharper if needed.
I use WP Pro for downsizing and SI for upsizing.Hermie said:
Thanks for the info. I will confirm this with my next project.Herman said:The point that Knoll and Cox are making is that stepwise resizing in PS CS and CS2 will not improve results compared to 1-step approach!
Earlier versions of PS will benfit from stepwise resizing.
