    using retina display to design graphic is very difficult as pixel dimensions as you know it are multiplied by 200%

    i find it very hard to make small items clear... the olny way im happy is if i design @ 3 times the size of desired dimensions and use html to pull image down to size for example 40x40 i would make the image 120x120 then use html or css to display @ 40x40

    I made the fox news image , if i made it the 40x40 it would be blurry

    am i the only one who is having trouble with this? im not happy with a lot of the images i make when it comes to sharpness , because of my retina display it makes good things look bad

    Are you using Photoshop to make the images?

    You cannot resize raster images smaller or larger in PhotoShop, hoping to keep the higher quality image sharpness intact.

    You'd need to design in an application like Illustrator -- I actually use PhotoImpact X3 -- if you're hoping to keep the quality of a vector image that can be resized without loosing quality. PhotoImpact has a rather nice "Sharpen" functionality that can better increase the quality of resized raster images without compromising their resolution too badly. Surely PhotoShop has a sharpen tool? IDK, as I'm not too familiar with it...

    To be quite honest, I'm not a fan of photoshop when it comes to making logos and things. I only use Photoshop if I absolutely have to like in the event someone sends me a PSD to edit. Illustrator is intended for making vector graphics and logos, so I recommend using it if you have the option.

    You can save your vector image then as an SVG instead of a png. Depending of course on how you're using it. An svg file is a web vector and will automatically scale to different resolutions. We've used an SVG for our site's logo. :)

    Oh and you can download a vector (.eps) of the Fox Logo from Brands of the World to open in Illustrator. I work with some international companies, and sometimes getting a vector from them takes ages, or near impossible because they think I can use a teeny jpg for a billboard graphic lol. Someone pointed out Brands of the World at work once, and I was like "holy ****." Saves a lot of time XD.
