Re: [Gimp-user] Enhancing image after shrinking

You photo shows something which is zoomed in, so it will always look
pixellated. Taking a photo doesn't help us, because it shows your screen
pixels. Make a screenshot instead.

There are case where shrinking an images leads to aliasing(*), the
non-obvious cure is to blur the image **before** scaling it down to
remove these periodic details that won't appear in the downscaled image

Also, our eyes don't see small picture as we see big ones. On very small
pictures you may need to boost contrast and saturation.

Your logo:

* Slightly Gaussian blur (1.5)
* Downscaled 8X
* High-pass filter with contrast enhancement

I am trying to make a very small banner (468x60) for a game that I play. I have
cropped out some objects from screenshots and saved them as PNG files so that I
can drop them onto the banner and eventually export as a jpeg. My issue is I
start with a really decent looking image and after I scale down the image it
looks so blurry and even on a small banner is very noticeable. This is also the
same with the text, but one problem at a time. I read about using some
filter/enhance tools to sharpen up the image and haven't been successful yet.
However when I open a few of these tools it has a preview window that has a
really nice looking "small" version of my original PNG file. Is there any way
that I can get that quality after shrinking my image down? I have taken a photo
and attached it to show the obvious difference between my image and the preview
before applying the enhance tools. Thank you so much for your time and please
try super simple explanations as I am very very new into the photo editing game.
