I did it. I created a monster. I grabbed myself a Kaluha and coffee (thank goodness there was coffee in the lounge) and innocently asked Deke about image resolution. Then, I listened, diligently, as you should, as the master discussed this challenging subject. (I think it’s challenging, but in part because people give me different answers to my resolution questions.) It’s a secret handshake, but Deke does his best to guide us through the labyrinth.
Here’s where our resolution immersion takes us:
If you’ve ever been faced with that Image Size dialog box in Photoshop and you weren’t quite sure how to navigate it for your desired results, then this week is for you. If words like resampling, interpolation, dpi, ppi, and even lpi make your head spin, Deke will either cure you or make it infintely worse with his in-depth knowledge. (Either way though, you will come out better on the other side.) You gotta know it’s intense, when halfway through this longish episode, Deke says, “Here’s where it gets dicey.” Folks, I thought it was dicey about two minutes in. But ultiumately, there is no better guide than Jedi Master Deke when one is facing the darkness.
At the end, we toast to bicubic interpolation. I kid you not.
