« on: March 17, 2009, 04:06:02 PM »
Hi All

What is the best way to resize a PNG from 256x256 to 35x35 keeping as much quality as poss

I have tried a number of methods

Photoshop (just resize image)
Photoshop (resize in ten Steps)
Infrview resize
XNview resize

So what would you lot do to resize and maintain detail

Here is my best attempt

Resized Image

All I did was went to the image tab and clicked on image resize and changed it to 35 X 35. :)

Bicubic is the best way.  You can try Bicubic Sharper in Photoshop, which is the best way that I know of.  If you know a better way to resize, please educate me! :)
