    I want my thumbs to be 300-400 pixels but when I choose these setting
    they are simply downsized and not sharpend which leaves them looking
    quite bad.

    Has anyone found a way around this problem?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for your time.

    www.piquaclimber.com - these pages were made with a combo of
    photoshop/imageready and a cheap program called Thumb's Plus. I would
    love to lose the Thumbs Plus in favor of Web Photo Gallery.

    Use smaller thumbnails. Thumbnails are thumbnails because they are small 300
    or 400 pixels isn't a thumbnail it is a full sized image. If you insist on
    doing the gallery the wrong way then try sharpening the images before you
    have Photoshop create the gallery. Do a batch sharpening.

    Just don't post your URL here. With images that large most people aren't
    going to wait around to see your images. If we wanted to wait and watch
    paint dry we would go to the hardware store and get a can.

  3. Er, just don't click on it, then. I enjoyed the pix, and it must have
    taken almost a full 1100 nanoseconds to d/l.

    Besides, if you criticize others, at the least you must bottom post and
    use a std. sig.

    Hah!

    Anonymous R,

    So basically you don't know either.

    Thanks for your helpful comments.

    Another question, if that is insisting on "doing it the wrong way" then
    why is it an option in Photoshop CS2? Also, the small thumbs are not
    sharp either, they are just too small to notice most of the time.

    Please dazzle us some more with your insight.

    Thanks,
    Brad

    Under Preferences, set the resizing algorithm to "Bicubic Sharper".
