Apologies for what I am sure will turn out to be a very simple question.
I am working on something in Illustrator. The size is 336 x 280 px.I placed a 1500 x 1000 photo (jpeg) in and resized it, and it looks fine and crisp.
When I tried doing the exact same in Photoshop using the same size document, the image was really blurry. Same for if I copied it straight over from Illustrator.
I was zoomed in on both files at 200%. My understanding is that unless something is a vector, resizing a big image to be small will cause quality loss - so why has it only caused quality loss in photoshop and not in illustrator?
Oh when I exported both of them as PNGs the quality of each was the same!!! That is amazing, thank you so much, I never would have checked that! So does it not really matter what program I am using, cos as long as I save it as a png or jpg etc the quality will be the same anyway?
