Scaling down a photo without losing TOO much detail
I'm in a need of Help,
I am trying to scale down a photo of lets say about 4000x4000 pixels to 400x400 pixels, but I lose alot of details of the image, now I am aware that since I am scaling down in pixels and reaching until 400x400 that means that I will lose details...
I was wondering if there is a cool hack, so I can "lose" less details
the process I am trying to do is, opening the image in 6000x6000 canvas, then I crop it to 4000x4000, and paste it into a 400x400 canvas, and scaling it down until it fits.
the image looks fine in a 400x400, however, Its a bit of shame to lose alot of details so if anyone could maybe give me a tip how to scale down and maintain details I will be SUPER HAPPY
