Is there a Photoshop plugin that downsamples photos without making them blury? I follow the general wisdom of downsampling in steps, but still get blury jpegs in the end. I'm trying to reduce a 5,600 pixel wide photo to a 600 pixel wide.

Check this guy's perfect web delivered photos. I wonder if he uses special downsampling software because he uses a 45MP camera (lots of pixels to reduce!)

After you re-size any photo you have to sharpen it again. Are you sharpening them after resizing?

Are you sure your monitor is set to its correct resolution?

This is because you resize them to a lower format and you will never get as much detail then when you got a full sized picture.
Its sharp and fine to me btw.
