BUG: Transparent border around image after resizing

When I resize a photo, Photoshop is putting a single-pixel semi-transparent border around the entire resized image. In the original image the color goes all the way to the edge of the image and there are no transparent pixels anywhere in the image to begin with. See the enlarged screen capture below, the red arrows point to the top and left border added by Photoshop after sizing it down.

PLEASE FIX THIS, it's a really annoying bug, thanks.

In the meantime you can work around the issue by adding a background layer (locked). Add a new layer , use Shift +Ctrl+Alt+E to merge a copy of all visible onto it. Move it to the bottom of your layerstack and use Layer > New Background from Layer. Then resize.

I am using Photoshop 2020 and just came across this bug. I've seen arguments that it's only doing the correct thing as there are no pixels ouside the image and so interpolating the edge pixels can't work properly, but thats a feeble answer from someone who is a developer (PS I am a dev myself). The common sense approach is that this should not happen and is what most people expect and so I would class this as a bug. However, I have found a much simpler solution than the convoluted solution above. Just duplicating the layer and then resizing seems to work. PS My issue was with a single PNG image opened in Photoshop and therefore I only have one layer to start with,

"It's not a bug, it's a feature". This is part of the broader issue of how Photoshop resizes rectangles. I first came across it back around v7.0. With all due respect to Mr.Cox, it should not be like this. There are two common work-arounds, neither of which are satisfactory.

 

You can resize using Nearest Neighbor, which looks dreadful. Or, after resizing with some other interpolation, select the edge pixels, and Image > Apply Image, using multiply. This lessens the problem, but doesn't make it go away.

 

Photoshop used to ship with a tool called Filter Factory, which allowed you to directly control the transparency of individual pixels. There was an updated clone of this from a site called Telegraphics, Filter Foundry, which is only available for 32-bit, and the developer has no plans to update it to 64-bit. I keep a 32-bit copy of CC 2018 just to run this.

 

It should be easy to deal with this, but I haven't found any for 64-bit.

I solved this by duplicating the image as a new layer, then resizing and saving.

Agreed. This is obviously a bug. Okay, so it happens for a reason, and maths dictates that it will happen. Fine. I get that, I accept that. But you simply find a workaround so that the user sees what they are expecting to see. When I resize something, I am not expecting a 1px transparent bit at the top and bottom that wasn't there before. You put yourself in the user's position and design your software for them. Quite frankly, ADOBE products are not cheap. So yes, this is sh"#&t.

 

The duplicate layer workaround works simply because it puts pixels from the original image below the transparent part, but the problem hasn't gone away. Considering that this bug was first addressed nearly 6 years ago, it is pretty pathetic that this problem still exists.
