Resize the Portrait for the Final Cut

The classic example for the need to resize the portrait is that today most of the websites having an option of uploading one’s profile picture have predefined dimensions. In such situation, if the portrait being uploaded is not within the desired range, it looks distorted. Thus one is left with no other option but to resize the portrait. Resizing one item is not an issue. But the problem is when there are bulk images with varied dimensions which have to be resized within limited time period. It could be most mind-numbing activity if one starts resizing each of them individually. Certainly there are tools and scripts available which make this task easier. But for that one needs to be aware of how to put them to use. While resizing the portrait, the editor has to keep in mind that the image does not lose out on its quality by getting too shrunk or cropped unnecessarily. And if the job involves regular resizing, it is best to hire an expert team for faster and quality output.

Portrait retouching when intelligently combined with skin smoothing makes the portrait look beautiful and take care of the minor details of the face which otherwise would not be as appealing as it should be. Red eye removal is inevitable if one wants to have a perfect picture. The complicated techniques of color balancing and background changing enhance the overall quality and content conveyed through the portrait. Now the final part is to make such an enhanced portrait fit into the desired space and display it to serve the purpose. Because doing the above activities will be a sheer waste of time if it fails to fit within desired dimension. Hence, it becomes essential to pay attention to resize the portrait and make the optimum utilization of it.
