How do I make this image clearer?

    Hi,

    I have uploaded the below image as a product image on eBay but the red banners and text in the corners are blurred

    I have used Arial font, web colour cc0033 and the image is 1500 px x 1500 px and saved as an RGB jpeg, but it is still not that sharp.

    Is there anyway to make the text sharper and the red banners less pixelated?

    What size was the image when you started working on it? If you stretched it in the process, then that's the problem.

    What size are you wanting it to be displayed as? The reason it's getting distorted like that is because it's shrinking the image from 1500x1500 to whatever display size it is. Resize the image before adding the red banners and font, then upload it.

    Redo the image with larger resolution, shouldn't be more than 10 mins of work!

    [h=1]How to make your photos super sharp in Photoshop (without adding noise)[/h]
    There seems to be a lot of debate about the best sharpening method in Photoshop. Some say it’s “unsharp mask,” while others swear by “smart sharpen,” and a few have developed complex multi-step workflows for sharpening their photos.
    I’ve tried a few of these techniques, but the one I like best is High-Pass sharpening. It’s my favorite method for two reasons:

    • It barely adds any noise to your photo
    • It’s a short and quick process
    So, here’s how you do it:
    1.) You’ll need to have a flat image for this, so if you have multiple layers, merge them together by selecting “Flatten Image” from the “Layer” menu.
    2.) Create a duplicate layer of your flat image by selecting “Duplicate Layer…” from the “Layer” menu:
    3.) Go to the “Filter” menu, and go all the way to the bottom until you get to the submenu labeled “Other,” and then click on “High Pass…”4.) You should now see a window that looks like this:5.) The goal here is to select a pixel radius large enough so it outlines the edges of your photograph and shows a little bit of color (make sure the “preview” box is checked!). Usually values between 4 and 10 work very well. Here are a few examples of radius values that are too small, too big, and perfect:
    6.) Click “OK” to apply the filter
    7.) In the “Layers” window, click on the blending mode listbox, and select “Overlay”
    8.) Your photo should now look like it’s too sharp. But, don’t worry, the next step is to fix that! Right next to the blending mode listbox, there’s an “Opacity” slider. Click on that and lower the opacity until your photo looks sharp, but not too sharp. I usually set it between 30-45%.
    You should now have a super sharp photo! Here’s an example before/after:

    I was just wondering if anyone knew how to make an image clearer after zooming in. This because (as you all know) when zooming into an image, the part you zoomed into is all blurred. Is there anyway of making the image that you just zoomed in really clear so that it is clear as before without zooming out.

    I have try sharpening it but it makes hardly any difference.

    Not really, I'm afraid. If you have the source file, try saving as a GIF or PNG.

    You really want to get this kind of thing done in vector in a program like Adobe Illustrator. Then you resize to any resolution without loss of quality.

    If your image is fine when you are creating it then there are two possible issues. One, your saving method. Are you saving the image at the highest possible resolution? If you are, then it should be clear when you open the image on your computers photo viewer. If it looks good then the problem would be on ebays side. Some websites automatically compress your image when uploading it to their site. Hope this helps.

    Try to save it as PNG and reupload it. This will eliminate the blur effect. Also make it in even aspect ratio - 1400 or 1600 px. Hope this will help :)
