This task would take a very long time and would be maddeningly boring if done manually, but luckily we can hand that task to the hardware and software. 1. ​The ability to maintain and edit layers adds to the flexibility and editability of digital drawings. Portability addresses the ability of drawings to be translated across software packages and presentation formats. This is a huge advantage of digital media, but a few things must be considered before a drawing is started in order to make it as flexible as possible.

Downsampling does not have the same issues with image degradation as upsampling. It can be accomplished using the same Image Size dialog box in Photoshop. Instead of increasing the number of pixels, reduce the number of pixels. 10. ​Sampling algorithms. Vector Images Vector images contain different data to describe a drawing than raster images contain. Vector images use a series of coordinates and formulas to describe the image that are independent of the scale of the drawing. 11. ​Increasing the width from 2,500 pixels to 5,000 pixels quadruples the size of the file.

2. 3. 4. The current scale of the drawing is 1″ = 20′ or (20). Divide that by the desired scale, which is 1″ = 10′ or (10). The calculation is 20/10 = 2. The scale factor is 2, and the scale percentage is 200. 12. ​The image will be scaled by the percent value in the Image Size dialog box. Uncheck the Resample box to prevent upsampling. 49 Part 2 Base Imagery 5. T o change the scale of the drawing in Photoshop, select Image > Image Size. 6.
