Resizing images in PSP

Learn how to resize their images and retain the clarity.

- Start PSP and open clipart of your choice.

- To change the image size, choose Image Resize.

Go to Image and select Resize.

(Or hold down CTRL + S on your keyboard.)

- The Resize dialog box appears.

I use the following settings:
Size: image size is decreased by 50%.

Print size: didn't change anything.

SMART SIZE is selected.

Make sure that the Resample using "SMART SIZE" is checked.

Resize All Layers is also unmarked.

When all is set, click OK.

You can use the settings of your choice, just make sure you're using the Smart Resize and that you uncheck the Resize All Layers if it's selected.

I also always add a slight sharpening effect by applying the unsharp filter because after resizing an image seems to lose some clarity.

Go to Adjust (or Effects), select Sharpen and then Unsharp Mask.

These are the settings I usually use:

Radius: 29
Strength: 31
Clipping: 4

Click OK.
