Sprites, the universe, and everything: Photoshop.

I need desperately to know how to turn off anti-aliasing in Photoshop, so that I can enlarge sprites without having the “smart” aspects of Photoshop try to “fix” the sprite (i.e., make it look like dithered, half transparent shit).

I’m using the normal tranform command to do this, additionally. I don’t know if that’s important.

Could someone please help?

I’ve had the same problem in other programs, so I always use MS Paint to resize stuff.

Damn. I guess I’ll have to break my vow of purity and use Paint. Unless someone else can save me from certian doom…

tries to make bambi eyes and fails; damn my squid anatomy

When you go to Image Resize, there is a list box that lets you choose how the pixels are rendered. I think the default option is bilinear or bicubic, which will smooth out the edges. If you want the sprite enlarged with no crap around it, use the “closest neighbor” option. I think it also helps if you convert the sprite to a GIF first… rather than doing it in raw Photoshop mode.

Thanks Kero, you’re my hero!

Sorry, had to rhyme it. Can’t resist and all that, eh, wot?

Pfah. Photoshop is for the weak, especially if you use it for spriting.

And praytell, Captain Condescention, what do you use?
