That's always irked me a bit too, Sandy... but I haven't seen the issues you can see by resampling directly to a pixel size or to something like 56%.

I'll use 66%, but not 53.25% or 58%. 60% would of course be better. Your call... do some tests if you have a few minutes.

Well, now you've got a convert here because I always just resized to 650pixels at the narrowest. Won't do that anymore, will do % reductions from now on. Good thing about PS is the ability to create custom actions so shouldn't be all that difficult to obtain the same size or thereabouts. Yes, the ol' "gotta do some of my own tests". Maybe tomorrow! *LOL* Will post em when I've got em.

PS: Love the avatar... I can see the similarities *wink*

Excellent stuff Ron. There's only one problem; now I'm going to have to repeat this whole thing and compare the results to the FM Resize Pro plug-in that I bought recently. :?

So far, I'm really enjoying my switch to PS CS, and Fred's plug-ins have greatly eased the start-up pain. There is no doubt in my mind that I'm getting much better results with PS, so it has been well worth the effort so far.

Thanks for posting!!

I figure it's better to allow you to make your own decisions based on the information presented, rather than telling you... however, I think that the Capture resize is the finest overall (costing a step in post though), with the Bicubic Sharper coming in a close second.

Hmm... I thought the general rule was Bicubic Smoother for down-sampling, and Sharper for upsampling. Or do I have it backwards ;-)

Check for yourself based on the results, or run some tests on your own...

It's always better than having someone tell you what to do, as you have a visceral understanding.
