Resize Images without Losing Quality with Photoshop Smart Objects

Learn how to scale and resize images without losing quality in Photoshop using Smart Objects! You'll learn the difference between resizing a normal pixel image and resizing a Smart Object, and why Smart Objects always look better!

To see the advantage of resizing an image as a Smart Object, we start by setting up a side-by-side comparison between a normal, pixel-based image and a Smart Object. Then we resize both versions of the image, first by scaling them down and then scaling them back up and we compare the results. We look at why Smart Objects are able to resize images without losing quality, and we finish off by up-scaling both versions of the image back to their original size. At the end, I share an important tip for making sure you're always getting the best results.
