Hello,

I am working a pixel art game where the nearest neighbour Image Interpolation becomes invaluable to my work flow. Unfortunately I don't seem to be able to get it to work. It just blurs my pixel artwork.

What do you mean?
How are you resampling the image?

I haven't seen any problems with Nearest Neighbor resampling.

Hi Mark,
Are you using the Image Size dialog to resize? (Image > Image Size...)
Do you choose Nearest Neighbor in that dialog as well or set it in the Prefs, then leave the Image Size dialog at Automatic?
Thanks,
Meredith

Image size using Nearest Neighbour does resize it correcting. I am wanting to use the transform to enlarge/rotate one element at a time.
...

Ok i have fixed it :). I think it is me not being used to a newer version of Photoshop. It used to be that I have to Press Ctrl K and reset the preferences. but there is a little drop box on the top bar now during a transform... I missed it

Thanks for you help everyone.

Yeah, the interpolation choice on free transform was added a few versions back...
