Enjoy our in-depth feature on how to resize images without losing quality

In Photoshop, size really does matter, but not how you might think it does. The size of an image really has very little to do with how much screen space it takes up, and much more to do with how much information is packed into that space. So instead of measuring an image with traditional units like centimetres or inches, you will see images described with numbers like 800 x 600. But what does that mean? 800 by 600 whats? The answer is pixels, but you might ask what are those? How big are they? And why are we measuring with them anyway?

Our feature in issue 78 answers all of these questions, looking at how image size dictates how your image looks and what it can be used for.


    Every month I buy Photoshop Creative and everyday I learn lots of fantastic things.
