OS X 10.6.8
Save For Web offers 5 resampling algorithms (the same 5 as in Image Size, ignoring "Bicubic Automatic", of course) for when the output is being resized.
All choices except "Nearest Neighbor" output an identical image (which is different to all results of Image Size). Although the "Bilinear" output contains the same pixels as the output of the 3 bicubics, its file size is slightly different then their shared file size.
I normally resize with Image Size, so this post is not a request for help. This is only to alert Adobe to the apparent problem.
Has this been noted by Adobe?
I've been pointing out quite a few problems over the past couple of months and usually get no acknowledgement from an Adobe rep. Does that indicate that Adobe remain unaware of the problems or that they don't care about the problems?
i am happy to report the issue for you, with some more information to better understand the problem.
i would recommend you take a look at the following link:
the link above better explains the differences in the three resampling modes.
Janelle, thanks for these links, but I already understood that the resampling choices should give different results, otherwise I wouldn't have reported the problem of them producing identical results.
By the way, there are now 5 choices in the Save For Web resampling list, not just the three in your outdated information.
The main point, however, is as I stated before:
Problem: all choices except "Nearest Neighbor" output an identical image (which is different to all results of Image Size).
Thanks for reporting that.
