Almost everytime I resize a cover to 800x600, they get distorted in some way. What has happened to me a lot is shadows get thrown off (pulled way away from image) and Strokes get enlarged? I am using Photoshop CS. Any ideas why this happens or how to prevent it?

Here are a few examples

Enlarged Strokes

To scale a layer effect (from Adobe Photoshop Help)
A layer style may have been fine-tuned for a target resolution and features of a given size. Using Scale Effects allows you to scale the effects in the layer style without scaling the object to which the layer style is applied.
Select the layer in the Layers palette.
Choose Layer > Layer Style > Scale Effects.
Enter a percentage or drag the slider.
Select Preview to preview the changes in the image.
Click OK.

Using the Transform command (CTRL+T) will only scale the object and NOT the layer effects. You could 'flatten' the layer to make the layer effect a part of the layer (Create a new layer and CTRL+E to combine the layers and the Layer effect is rasterized onto the layer and can be scaled with Transform, but you lose being able to change the effect) but thats not a good idea.

If the layers are linked then there shouldn't be a problem.

I just flatten the image then re-size it and then save it as a jpeg. (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8834.gif)

Never had any probs doing it that way. So if you do it like this and are still having problems then I'm at loss m8, sorry I can't offer more help.

As said best way to do it is save the cover as a JPG full size then reload the jpeg back into PS and resize making sure 'Constrain Proportions' is selected, i never flatten an image because i accidentally saved once and lost all my layers.

Also if you resize a cover 3240x2175 to 800 pixels width then the height should be 537 pixels when constrained.
