Resizing an image in a layer

Heeeeelp
I'm trying to find out how to resize an image in a layer without loosing any of its quality. If I use the transform tool I seem to loose a lot of its quality, and it is unusable if I enlarge it again. I have seen it done somewhere on the net but I can't find it again and can't remember how it is done.

    Sorry don't know where the resizing is, other than image or canvas? if use free transform is it something to do with that?

  • tuiluvva Apr 10, 2008

    Thanks for that, but by doing that will this resize the whole image (or project for want of a better word)? What I actually have is two images and I have dragged the second image in as a layer on the first and what I am wanting to do is scale the second image within the first one. (hmm, is that confusing image one, two, two one??lol), so that it fits within this image better.


  • tuiluvva Apr 10, 2008

    hmm, I must be doing something wrong coz that didn't work for me, it still looses its quality so I can't read any of the writing. Just so I know if I'm on the same track as you are you resizing the image using transform after setting the resampling to off?

  • tuiluvva Apr 10, 2008

    it's not working for me, I've tried it on a couple of different images but its very pixely when I reduce it. When you say image, resize, image size mine doesn't actually say that it just straight from image to image size not a resize option, am I looking in the wrong area perhaps? I do have the option of turning of the resample image which I have done but it's not working for me.



    Better not give up my day job eh???

  • tuiluvva Apr 10, 2008

    I don't have resize, do you know if it would hidden somewhere? or maybe yours is a different version, I have the version 10 extended (I think) as you have probably noticed I am new to this. I have checked and double checked the resample is off but it just wont work for me.



    Thanks for all your time on this but I guess I'll just have to try finding the resize bit somewhere, maybe that is the problem.

Try converting your image to smart object first before you resize or tranform it.Smart object icon inside the layer thumbnail will appear. Now, anytime you want to resize or update your original image just double click it (the smart object icon) and save any changes you have applied on the image.

Hope this **** helps!

I know what you are talking about when you say your losing quality. This is how i fixed it and it worked for me.
Try this:
Image, Resize, Image size
Check the settings in here.
Is "Resampling Image" turned on or off?
I turned mine off and it worked for me.
Printed pictures of Starbucks coffee cups at 1" tall and the logo was dead on still.
Hope this helps.
Good Luck.

    No, No --- not confusing. I understand what you are trying to do.



    Don't actual resize the picture. After changing the setting just say OK. That way the 1st picture stays the same size but you should be able to resize the other with that option turned off.

    Let me know.

  • Amber Engman Apr 10, 2008

    I used free transform and just sized the logo to fit the cup. (cup background layer, logo 2nd layer)

  • Amber Engman Apr 10, 2008

    So i just went and played around with it. If you have Resampling Image turned on then you will lose quality as you shrink then enlarge a picture. But, when i turned resampling off, then i could shrink and enlarge all i wanted and the logo was perfect. Could read the words and everything. You might have to start back at layer 1, with that setting turned off, and then import layer 2. Once that setting is turned on and you have resized an image you won't be able to get the quality back. Does this make sense? When i did the picture originally i had the same problem. The logo just looked like a green blur. But i went back to just the picture of the cups, turned off that setting (which should be off now) and then brought in the logo. I then used the Magic Extractor to get rid of everything around the logo but the logo. Then free transformed the logo to the size and location i wanted it. Worked great. Let me know how it goes.

  • Amber Engman Apr 10, 2008

    I don't know why its not working, it should be. When i say image, resize, image size i choose image on the toolbar, go down to resize, and then choose image size from teh resize menu.

    As long as the resampling is turned off it should be ok to resize and not lose quality. Did you start from the beginning bringing in a new picture and adding the layers with the option off?

    I don't understand why this is not working for you.

    Im really sorry.

  • Amber Engman Apr 10, 2008

    We must have a different program. This should have worked. i am really sorry. If i find another answer i'll let you know.

    Good Luck.

The user profile service failed the logon. user profile cannot be loaded


Anyway.. If you can, follow these steps. They might help! If not, give me a bell! It looks complicated, but it's very easy.

Also, before this happened, did you trying doing a Windows Update? If so, that was the cause, especially if it failed. I don't know why it locks the account, however.
1. Open the Start menu.
2. In the white line (Start Search) area, type regedit and press Enter.
3. If prompted, either click on Continue or enter the password for the Administrator account.
4. In regedit, go to: (See screenshot below step 5)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList

5. In the left pane, look for the S-1-5..... folder (SID key) with the long number that has .bak at the end of the numbers.
(See screenshots below steps 6A and 7B)
NOTE:
A) In the right pane, look at the ProfileImagePath to verify that this is the user account profile that has the error.
B) You may have another S-1-5..... folder (SID key) above it with the exact same number without the .bak at the end of it.

6. For Two S-1-5..... folders (SID key) with the same Number -
NOTE: This is if you have two S-1-5..... folders (SID key) with the exact same numbers, but the second (below) one has the .bak at the end of the numbers.
A) In the left pane, right click on the first (top) S-1-5..... folder (SID key) that does not have .bak at the end of the numbers and click Rename. (See screenshot below)

D) Remove only .bak from the end of the numbers and press Enter. (See screenshot below)
E) Now go back and Rename the first one with .bk to .bak now at the end of the numbers and press Enter.

F) Go to step 8.
7. For Only One S-1-5..... Folder (SID key) with .bak -
NOTE: This is if you only have one S-1-5..... folder (SID key) for your user account with .bak at the end of the numbers.
A) In the left pane, right click on the S-1-5..... folder (SID key) with .bak at the end of the numbers and click Rename. (See screenshot below)
B) Remove only .bak at the end of the numbers and press Enter. (See screenshot below and below step 10)

8. In the right pane of the one without .bak now, right click on RefCount and click Modify. (See screenshot below step 10)
NOTE: If you do not have RefCount, then right click on a empty space in the right pane and click New and DWORD (32 bit) Value, then type RefCount and press Enter.

I am trying to create a poster for a fundraiser. I can get as far as creating the legal size of it, but then I do not know how to put the 4 pictures onto it and then move them around and resize them. I...


Howdy, here's my 4c worth.

After you have your legal size image ready then go to file > Open > the_file_you need.jpg
Gimp will open it in another window.

just hold CTRL down then press A while still holding CTRL to select All the image
then hold CTRL down then press C to Copy it
Go back to your blank page and hold CTRL down then press V to Paste it.
This step is weird but necessary, in the Layers panel it will have a new layer called "floating selection" or similar. just right click on it and select new layer...
the copied image will be pasted into the new one as a new layer (so you can edit it independently)

To resize it, look at the tools (on the left) panel and select the Scale tool (hover your mouse over each tool to see what it is called). once you have it selected then click anywhere on the image you wish to resize. then it will go into Scale mode where you can "grab" the corners with the mouse and stretch it to your liking. if you wish to keep the Aspect ratio (so it dosn't look stretched and warped) hold CTRL and SHIFT at the same time whist resizing.

And finally the Text!

Click on the A (text tool) in the tools panel.
Click and drag your mouse on the image to create a "text box" (the actual text you type is in a separate little box, but you can edit the color, font, size, etc.. later by clicking the A (text tool) and then clicking on the solid part of a text layer.)

Hope this rambling was of some use.

I am trying to send pics in a e-mail, but pics are to large? How do I change size?


To start your picture resize or shrink, simply click the "Browse..." (or "Choose File" for Mac and Safari Users) button above under "Step 1". After you have chosen your file, you can simply click the box that shows one of our predefined widths and continue on. Or, you can click "More Options" to click a height instead of a width, or specify your own custom resized height and width.

If the picture you are resizing supports a quality setting (usually only JPG or JPEG images support quality changes), you can click a lower quality in order to lower the final file size (in bytes), or just leave it at 100%.
Finally, click the "click here to resize" button. After your image is resized, you can save it to your computer using the form on the next page

Hope this one will work.

Each time I shrink an high-quality image in Fireworks to a size I need for my website, the image seems to lose some resolution. Is it possible to shrink such images in Fireworks without loss of image...


Try using Paint. Open it with it, then go to resize and put in the size needed. either shrink it a percentage or type the pixels in. It works pretty good and keeps quality. Then save it under a different name so original dosn't get lost.

My pictures are too large when downloaded onto laptop. How can I change the setting so that I can mail to friends? I never had a problem until my son borrowed the camera & altered it!


You can resize the images. For this you can use Irfanview or Paint. Or click here to visit a website which will allows you to upload and resize photos.it allows you to resize one by one.

If you want to use Paint, right-click on any photo you wish to resize and click edit. Press Ctrl+A to select the complete photo. Then drag the sliders wher you can see the end of the photo. Or

  1. Open the image file you wish to edit.
  2. Click the Image Menu at the top and select Stretch/Skew Image.
  3. Choose a percentage figure to resize the image. To avoid distortion, choose the same percentage for the horizontal and vertical stretch.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Once you have the desired size, click File, then Save or click Save As... to prevent overwriting the original image.

My scanning files are to big


Since there's not much information, I'm going to have to make a lot of assumptions with this solution.

The basic issue you have is not the scanning, it's the scaling after the scanning. Since you do not indicate what software you are using to scan the image, I can't be certain without knowing what you're using, but most of these scanning packages allow you to 'resize' or 'scale' the image. How much to scale depends on how large the original is, and how small you need the final version, so some experimentation may be in order. As an example, with my scanner, I typically resize to about 50% of the original.

If you don't have that option, most graphics programs allow this fairly easily (you simply save, then open the scanned image in the image editor and perform the scaling there). Or, some programs even let you resize without opening the file, such as Microsoft's free Image Resizer tool (http://download.microsoft.com/download/whistler/Install/2/WXP/EN-US/ImageResizerPowertoySetup.exe) which allows resizing by right clicking on the file name.

How to reduce file size of photos for uploading onto a website


You should have a setting on the camera with the option of picture quality and size. Select fine quality rather than super fine. Then you should select the size,small,passport,medium,postcard,large and widescreen are the usual terms. But somewhere it should give the actual size in dimensions e.g 640x480. This is the size i would recomend for downloading. When you download the images from the memory card make sure that when you are asked Where you want to save them you also check which format they are being saved as!! Save them as a jpeg and not a bitmap image as this is the most common used by websites.If you need to resize an image you already have on the pc,click on it and then right click,you should then have an option to "open with" and you can choose from many different applications.I find the easiest and quickest is" Paint" It will then open in the paint programe, goto image at the top of the page and click resize. you can then choose what size you like. Bear in mind that resizing affects quality although you can adjust virtually anything with the paint software.
