    photoshop question....

    ok, so I want to scale an image up, but not have the pixels blend together, keep the sharpness. It seems to work ok when scaling a GIF image, but im trying to do it with a PSD file. Seems like it would be just a simple setting, but I can't seem to find it.....

    anyone know how to do this? thanks.

    I think you'd have to use "image size" and change the resolution (uncheck 'resample image").

    If it's a raster based file, I believe the only way to scale it up and keep it looking decent is to lessen the resolution (as mentioned). Though I could be wrong.
    I self-published a book on the fundamentals of drawing from life.

    hmm, ok thanks. That could work for something. Basically what im trying to do is redesign my website, but adjust it to a larger size, so i would ultimately like to keep those extra pixels when i scale up. I ended up just taking the layers i wanna keep pixellated and saving them as gifs and resizing those, then copy and paste into the main psd file. That seems to be a fix for now.....
