i have a poster thats 3000x4500 pixels @300 dpi.
i want to reduce it for the front of a dvd,a reduction of about 50% - but i gets quite 'blocky' when i do.i'm using paintshop pro 9.
any suggestions for reducing it without losing the quaility?

I always found that reducing the size hid imperfections (i.e. increased the quality rather than reducing it).

When reducing the size, have you tried setting the pixel dimensions to 100% and then the print size resolution to 150 (or half what it was already)?

(IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/8824.gif) Sorry, I didn't put that over very well.

When I resized in PSP9 I got this option box:

Using "Smart Size" you can set the width and height to 100%.

Then change the Resolution to half of what is already showing. The percentage size will automatically change to 50%.

Click Okay and your image is now half the size it was. I found this the best method of reducing the size.

Yeah I read that somewhere as well, got a feeling Taco did it, as in the same piece was to use bicubic when sizing up.
