drawing of a thing i had a dream about. warning that it may be gross.
as long as you keep the two values locked to each other you won’t stretch anything, and they are locked to each other by default, you know
they are locked but the pixels will stretch sometimes! like this
the image on the left was resized to 218x218px on the right is the original.
Ive circled some spots on the left image where the pixels were stretched. before being resized they were just 1 pixel thick lines, but now they are essentially 1.5 thick pixel lines.
Ive seen this SO much when people resize their art to try and fit the 500px wide tumblr posts
its not like GODAWFUL but its just one of my pet peeves
pixelpathogen said: how do you blow up a pixel animation and retain the animation?
I use Photoshop so I’m not too sure if this will be all that helpful but still
In photoshop you can go to Image -> Image Size and you get this screen:
1) Resize your image here. IMPORTANT unless you know the exact size you want it is usually a pretty good idea to switch where it says “Pixels” to Percent. That way you still keep your pixels looking good and not stretching them.
2) VERY IMPORTANT that you pick Nearest Neighbor when resizing pixels. It keeps the sharp edges and doesnt add any AA.
And thats it! It’s pretty simple in photoshop. Unfortunately photoshop is really the only program I’m kind of familiar with so I can’t really tell you how if you use any other program :c
I hope this helps though
