What to do when an image needs to be made bigger or smaller
1ellen1 says: 13 Months AgoI am going yo discuss the use of an image that is to be used in an other image such as a wallpaper.
You will need the image to have a transparent background so that it will blend into the wallpaper, so this image will be usually in either .gif or .png format.
If you do a small amount of re-sizing the image is normally fine to use with out any post processing [pp].
If you enlarge or down size an image for the most part there is a transparent shadow that can show up in the wallpaper.
The tool that you will need is the eraser tool or brush
Enlarge the image on your computer screen to at least 500% [bare minimum]-if there is a lighter shadow then you need to use the eraser tool to get rid of it. Often you only need to remove 1 row of pixels to get rid of this shadow.
I know this can be a lot of work but it results in a better image to use
hope this has helped in doing this sort of work or for others to have an idea of what people do with the graphic arts programs like the Adobe Elements or Adobe CS6 or another one that I use a lot is Paint.Net
