Hello there...

 

I need help with resizing images in photoshop.

I am game developer and i have upload my game to steam, and they request background image for my profile with 231px x 87px, when i import the image and change the size, the quality of image drop and start  change to blur which have been rejected from steam after they review the image.

I have tried to screenshot and put it in photoshop not working.

I have tried from illustrator to photoshop move it / export as photoshop file not working.

I also tried image size and changing the resolution dose make the image look good but the size change and I also checked box resample and choses preserve details 2.0 not working.

 

Any suggestions how to fix it?

You do realise that after downsizing an image, you can't take it back to its original size without significant loss of quality?  For your screen shot to make sense you need to show it like this

It's a busy image that is not going to lend itself to that degree of downsizing.  Do you have to use the image exactly as it is? If you simplify it it will downsize a lot better.

Agree with Chris. This is just extremely small, and at these extremely small sizes you really need to consider every single pixel. It's not a limitation in Photoshop; it's a limitation in pixels. You can't resize a standard photo to this size and expect anything meaningful to come out of that.

 

You need to build this from the ground up. It's very difficult! That's why it's referred to as "pixel art".

Hard to comment without knowing the pixel dimensions of the original, nor seeing the original or the resized results.

Hi @osama5C56 ,

 

Trevor has the overall answer for you. The fix is to make a simpler image that lends itself to the low resolution you are required to have.

It will just be low quality. 87 px tall is not very much space. That does look much better overall though.
