Resizing Guild [We'll resize for free.]

Resizing Guild
Free resizing services.

This isn't really a "guild" per say. I just wanted to collect names of users who could resize painties. I see folks asking for resize help all the time and feel like there needs to be a place where they can find a willing person to resize for them.

User Notice

We are not affiliated with any paintie shops. We are a free service for people who have a difficult time resizing their painties without artifacting or skewing. It is absolutely unfair for us to be used as a tool for your paintie shops if you do not want to attempt to do the work yourself.
In this post, found below, you will find a list full of resources for you to use, including tutorials, and you are more than welcome to ask Rotsuoy for any assistance in finding a program that's right for you as well as any tutorials that may help you. We promise we want artists to become self sufficient, and aren't saying this to be mean or unfair.


Please do not ask someone in this thread to color, or edit a paintie for you. This is just for people who can resize painties without them being blurry or covered in artifacts, totally for free.

Additionally, we can make painties transparent by removing backgrounds and stubborn pixels.

How to use this list:
1. Post your image on this thread with [img]ImageUrl[/img] or [url]ImageUrl[/url] and copy and paste the ping list above. This will ping everyone that can resize for you to come to this thread.
2. Please ask kindly. If you make brash demands of people they will be less likely to come to your aid.
3. Wait patiently. Please do not double ping the list or harass anyone on this ping list. It's even possible that someone not on the ping list will resize for you!
4. Do not abuse this thread. You may not ask for resize help if you are not planning on uploading the paintie you are requesting to be resized. If you have more than one paintie that needs to be resized, add them to one post so you can ping everyone once.
5. Please thank your resizers. You do not have to pay them, but thankful and grateful responses are accepted graciously!

If you would liked to be added to the resizer ping list, please ping me! I will not be subscribing to this thread. Conversely, if you'd like to be removed, ping me. I understand if you have other obligations and feel exhausted helping out here too. If your name breaks because you change it, I'll remove you until you want to be readded.
A note for resizers:
Always remember paintie restrictions are 600x400 pixels- the first number being the width and the second number being the height. All painties must be 400 pixels tall, no more or less, however, a paintie can't be more than 600 pixels wide.
Ideally, you should resize all painties with bicubic sharper as the scaling preference. However, some images may become too grainy so there will be times you may have to use bicubic smoother. Pixel art or art made with very little to no anti-aliasing look best with the scaling preference 'nearest neighbor'. This preserves hard edges and keeps the image looking extra crisp. This is really the only case when you should use nearest neighbor, because with most images it will make the art look overly grainy or jagged, when that wasn't the original intended effect.
If a user asks for a paintie to be resized that will not pass paintie rules and thus be rejected for upload, please let them know. If you, yourself are unsure if a paintie will pass, let the user know they can post it in the offical paintie check thread, and invite them to come back to us after it's been checked!

I'd like to be a resizer. I can also make any paintie image transparent, even ones with complex smoke effects and such.

dogfang here you are, i fixed the canvas size and made it transparent. The paintie image itself is at least 300 px tall so it'll be fine at this size.

Rainthewhitewolf I noticed a small error where a piece of the dragon's right ear was missing between the horn and the head. I made a correction that you are welcome to use. Otherwise I'll remove this if you're in any way bothered by me editing your artwork in this fashion.
