Image resizing

In this tutorial I will show you how to re-size your logo without losing resolution or sharpness of your image. If you don't know what size you need and want the easiest way to resize, go directly to step 5!

1. Open up your .png in Photoshop. Next, right click on your mouse, then click on duplicate layer. Make sure you have selected the copy only and have unclicked the eyeball on the original layer.




2. On the top tool bar click on image, image resize.




3. Make sure that all of your selections (as seen here) are all checked- very important! This sample has a resolution of 300. Now change the image size. When you change the width, the height will change accordingly without changing the resolution.




4. Here is your end result! Your image will be just as sharp!



5. Here is another option for re-sizing. You use this option when you simply want to drag your logo onto either a blank watermark template or maybe right onto your photograph to use as a watermark.

First open up your logo (.png file) and your blank watermark template (.psd).



Next, make a duplicate of your logo by following step 1.

Click on the move tool, then click on the center of your logo and "drag" your logo onto the blank watermark template.




Now your logo is on top of your blank watermark template. Your logo is HUGE! Simply place your cursor on the left top hand side of the box that your logo is in. Drag down. This makes your logo as small as you want so it can fit properly onto your template!
