Did you ever have the feeling that if you needed a small screenshot for your website, it just doesn’t come over very well? I have experienced that myself: If you just resize a screenshot to smaller dimensions, it will look unclear and somehow ugly. So here’s a tip on how to improve the result.
In Photoshop, use ‘Filter’ – ‘Sharpen’ – ‘Unsharp Mask’, set options to ‘Amount’ 85%, ‘Radius’ 1px and ‘Treshold’ 0. This should give you some good results. No matter how it looks now, click OK and got to resize your image. Choose ‘Image’ – ‘Image size…’. Use the bicubic method. You may not see improvements over just resizing, but small text should look better now.
Now your screenshots should come up better than before. Give it a more professional look, it’s easy.
