Image frustration [In reply to] Can't Post

Oh, I need to do an avatar but I'm no Photoshop expert - so right now still messing with pixels and sizes and matching TORn requirements e.g. haven't figured out why an online resizer can work so well, but what am I doing wrong in Photoshop where in theory you can do the same thing. E.g a few of the online resizers can reduce the image size and it still displays large and looks good, but when I mess w. an image in re pixels and .jpg quality in Photoshop the quality degrades.

I'll figure it outCool Sometimes I've gotten it right on TORn but can't pinpoint what I did right.

The other thing is I start messing with images of Thorin and the Hobbit movies and LOL I can't stop - I start w. one thing and it turns into something else. Ideas pop into my head and I'm off making a collage or something. That started happening last night when I decided to tinker with an image of Thorin. I'll post the montage it turned into if I think it comes out OK.

And OK, sometimes I'll pull up an image of Thorin and just stare for a while, LOL not productive. Thorin is too impossibly glorious a creation. I can't even fathom my reaction if they actually trot him out in that "NZ stamp" outfit - holy 'smokin dwarf + Kili and Fili. Picturing THAT on a 30-foot high IMAX screen - will be highly spiritual for many of us I am sure.Evil
