Why Update My Source Files?

I chose not to update my source file and decreased the size of my image. Now I want to increase the size of the image, but it's all blurry. What did I do wrong?


If you use the Optimize in Fireworks tool and choose not to update any source file, be careful if you choose to resize JPEG or GIF images. If you make an image smaller, but later want to return it to its original size, without the source file you'll end up with blurry graphics. JPEGs and GIFs are both raster images, which can't be easily increased in size without distortion. For this reason, it's always a good idea to keep your source files and save them in PNG format. PNG images are vector images and are less susceptible to distortion during the resizing process.
