Hi all - anyone having trouble lately with hard edges distorting when manually resizing? Since the last couple of updates, I began to notice that anytime I manually resize an image or graphic, anything with a straight line or hard edges - becomes very distorted with a jagged line instead of smooth resize. Any help would be appreciated.
Look in Edit > Preferences > General, and see what the Image Interpolation is set to. If it's Nearest Neighbor, try setting it to one of the Bicubic ones.
@Semaphoric-PLXibM has already given some great advice. Just expanding on that...
When you are using Free Transform on a layer, look out for this Interpolation menu in the panel running across the top of Photoshop.
If you are using the Image Size option, you will also have access to this menu.
Thank you both! This seems to be the answer I needed - much appreciated.
THANK YOU! I've had this issue for a few weeks now and it was driving me nuts! I changed this from “Nearest Neighbor” to “Bicubic automatic” and that fixed the issue.
