  • Updated 1 year ago
In older versions of Photoshop I would stylise my folders with images. Reduce image to 360px at
72ppi 8bit. Copy, make new folder get info and paste image in top folder in box  GREAT.
But now with 2019cc the image in out of focus and unrecognisable.
Is there a way round this, I would appreciate help on this.

Hey Bob,
I just tried what you're describing, and I could not duplicate your result. A few suggestions:
When resizing your image, turn off the re-sample button in the image size dialog, set your image to 72PPI, then turn on re-sample and set your size.
try using  bi-cubic sharper for reduction or try using preserver details. 
Does the image appear fuzzy when you open it in photoshop? If so, you could be saving it out much smaller than you realize.
Make sure your width and height in the image size dialog box is set to pixels.
If you open the file in photoshop after you save and it is not fuzzy, it something on your system that is changing the resolution or only showing a preview and not the actual file.
let us know if this helps.

Hey Bob,

Like Artofcrowe, I'm also not seeing this, but a thought is that if you are looking at the image at the same resolution / zoom, then yeah, it would look fuzzier, cuz at the same zoom, 72 ppi is fuzzy/blockier than 300 ppi.

Hope that helps,

Hi guys sorry for the delay in answering you replies, but as I had nothing to add, I thought I would wate untill I new what the answer was. It turns out to be nothing to do with Photoshop. Apple have changed something with there folders on the new OS 10.14. It appears that if your image is a Perfect Square when you copy it in Photoshop, then it will copy on to the folder in the same way as the older versions used to.

But thanks again.
