If you stopped by the dekeLounge for last week’s Martini Hour, you may recall that I unleashed the monster that is Deke talking about resolution . . . on caffeine! And this week, that monster stops by and actually quizzes me on what I learned. Is that really fair? I mean we are drinking martinis!
But whining aside, this week we put the theoretical information on resolution that Deke imparted last week to practical use.
Our practical, if imaginary, project is an image for the side of the theoretical dekeLounge minivan, and Deke walks me through how we would go about creating the proper resolution for such a large image. It’s actually fairly awesome stuff, especially if last week had your head spinning from more than just your requisite cocktail.
And if Deke’s advice doesn’t get your image sized just right for your minivan, check out the object of this week’s toast, Genuine Fractals, from our friends at onOne Software, which can help you professionally resize your images using the kinds of algorithms that Deke discusses in the show.
