If you are getting images from the internet - Just because an image is 1920x1080 doesn't mean it's HD or high quality. Make sure the image isn't stretched or skewed and look out for pixel junk created mostly when a smaller image has been resized to 1920x1080.
You most likely already know this.
Making images look more HD - The image has to be HD already. You can't take a 640x360 image and make it 1920x1080 without losing tons of detail and information or having to do significant redraws. With an already HD image you can adjust contrast, brightness, sharpness, saturation and things of that nature to give the image that extra 'pop'. After doing that is when you convert the images to DDS format. DDS will rob your images of some of it's quality. That can't be helped. Obviously the better looking the original images are, the better looking the DDS images will be. I also find that when converting to DDS your computer needs a good amount of free RAM (don't have other programs running while converting) and a good processor. My PC is 7 years old and when I convert to DDS with the browser open and/or some other programs running the images come out extra jagged looking. If your computer is fairly new you shouldn't have a problem.

No No you got me wrong in this though I really read through out your whole reply let me be more clear

once I start the process of making a dynamic theme out of video or clip in photoshop there is a portion where I have to resize
all layers ..I have resized them to 1920-1080 but the outcome was a semi-blurry dynamic theme on my ps3 ... my question is

how can I resize those layers on photoshop to be HD 1920-1080 so when I view it over my ps3 it give me what I expect

most of tutorials they tends to resize it to something like 640x360 or so which obviously will results in poor dynamic quality.

I just need to have 1920/1080 resizing so my outcome will look better , sorry if I was misleading you in my 1st question.

OK. Well like I said, resizing from smaller to larger will always result in lost information and detail.
What type of theme are you making? Which tutorial are you using?

Ok. He didn't show the final result in that video. I'm assuming he made an Animated Full theme.
You should be using this tutorial http://www.ps3-themes.com/foru.....s-tutorial
The guy in the video obviously has a widescreen TV. 640x360 is widescreen. 640x480 is standard.
When your backgrounds are 640x360 or 640x480 your theme can be 86 frames long. About 3 seconds.
When your backgrounds are 1280x720 your theme can be 34 frames long. About 1.5 seconds.
When your backgrounds are 1920x1080 your theme can be 15 frames long. About 0.5 seconds.
The smaller the backgrounds are, the longer your theme loop will be.

About frames and seconds - Typically a video will run at 24 to 30 frames per second.
Example: If you were to turn a video into a 34 frame/1.5 second loop you would use a 3 second video clip. When you break up the video clip into layers you keep every other layer. That way your 3 second clip fits into 1.5 seconds at 1280x720 resolution. The result can have a stop motion effect depending on the source, but you get a longer loop.

Here's the tutorial: http://www.ps3-themes.com/foru.....w-tutorial

You can't flip the image dynamically with this script. A new script has to be created for that. I can alter and add to scripts but I can't create them from scratch.

At the top of this page is a TUTORIALS tab. Check it out for other types of themes Smile
