Hey guys I need some help, so I'm no photoshop pro but I am comfortable with what I do which is photography. Most of the stuff I do is pretty simple, sometimes I'll add text or add 3 photos onto one 4x5 canvas and have them on top of eachother vertically. Basically I've done this thousands of times and it always works. Usually I will just edit my photos in Lightroom, then I will click the edit in photoshop button, drag it over to the canvas with the 3 vertical photos template. And resize. It never blurs or loses quality. And even to combat that, sometimes I will export the photo from Lightroom to my computer and then put it in photoshop.
I was doing a good amount of edits today when all of the sudden my stuff started getting blurry... on Lightroom it's crisp and clean, when I download it it's crisp and clean, but for some reason when I put it on photoshop, it gets pixelated and blurry? I have changed anything so idk why it randomly started doing this? One thing I noticed is that when I click the edit in photoshop button on Lightroom, the image comes in extremely large. I figured maybe for some reason when I was making it smaller it was changing the pixels so I downloaded it as a small image (crisp in Lightroom and on download) yet as soon as it's in photoshop it gets blurry again?
if someone could help me out that would be great because I pretty much can't edit until my photos are clear and crisp. If you have any questions for my settings or anything lmk but again it has worked 10000 times and I didn't change anything so I'm stumped. Here's some images to make it more clear
Can we see a screenshot of your image >> Image size on the document where it gets blurry? You may have changed the resolution and therefore you don't have enough pixels, and therefore your image is coming too large you scale it down to the lo res document and it looks blurry.
That last screenshot shows you are at 353% zoom on an image that has only 1080 x 1350 pixels. I am sure your Sony a7iii is capapble of more than that - so somewhere in your process you have downsized your image. Are you sure you have brought in the actual image and not a preview?
