Everyone knows that cameo from Ra2/YR/TS .. etc all have the same 60x48 pixels WxH. As i was trying to make my new cameos with internet pictures (they are usually super large compares to the size of cameos)

The Pictures i have was 1000x650 pixels, then i used variaties of photoshop program to resize it to 60x48 pixels but they all ended up collapsing and the picture was extremely blur and kind of destroyed to small grid.

Meanwhile, original cameo from ra2 and alot of cameos i saw from the internet or other forum they all have great quality and all smooth, detailed, and attractive.

How could i fix this issue? Thanks alot

The RA2 cameos are designed to work with in the limited cameo colour palette, trying to use images with lots of colours not included within the pal will result in a blurry mess. You can get around this by using Ares & PCX cameos with custom palettes.

Secondly the base image you have chosen is a blue tank on blue snow with a blue sky. For the best results use images with different contrasting elements, which will help keep the details more defined when downsizing the image.
