Recently, the product Perfect Resize was recommended to me as an excellent way to get more pixels out of less: Genuine Fractals is now Perfect Resize 7 - onOne Software I was fairly curious, so I thought I'd give it a shot. What follows is a relatively quick test of the product (trial version) in a 200% resize challenge versus Photoshop's built in resizing. The test subject is a real photo from my E-PL1 that I resized to 3 MP to control noise, and subsequently lost the original of. (D'oh!) I'm showing 100% crops of the resized image. If you really want to compare these in detail, I recommend opening them in three separate tabs and switching between. The crops are not exactly identical, I apologize for that. #1: Nearest neighbor resize. This is equivalent to a 200% magnification of a not resized image. #2: Photoshop bicubic smooth resize, followed by Auto Sharpen. #3: Perfect Resize at 200%, high detail preset. Finally, this is a composite of all three resize versions, in horizontal stripes at roughly 1/3. Try and guess which stripe is which method.
