I am trying to compile a few photos to use as a background image on a Kenwood car radio. Images need to be 480px high by 800px wide Jpg.
I have an image that works fine (Image-ok.jpg) in this dropbox folder HERE
In the same folder I have put two original photos and their downsized (480x800px) versions. Despite them having the same size when loaded onto the radio they are blurred.
I resize them by firstly cropping to the correct ratio then resizing down to 480x800.
Any help or advise would be gratefully received. I have looked at the resizing workshop but just cant get them down to a sharp size.
Thank you in advance
They look fine to me - viewed at 100% zoom
If you zoom in higher you will start seeing the pixels but that is the nature of the limited pixel dimensions
You can try to select different option In the resize dialog box.
Different interpolation method can generate different result depending on the nature of the image.
or you can try to exagerate the microcontrast by using some sharpen filter on the original image. Then scale down the image
