Resize picture inside Construct editor or in Photoshop?

Just started using Construct 2? Post your questions here

Hello!
I've been reading some tutorials and tips about how to create mobile games with good performance but I still have a small question, let's say I have one picture of 128x128px I want to use as a tile and this picture has a size of 3KB. The game will use 60x60px tiles. Is it better to:

- use the original picture and resize it inside Construct 2 (which pretty much mantains 100% quality)

or

- resize the picture to 60x60px using photoshop (the size is now 1KB but the quality is slightly worse using bilinear filter)

I want to know which one of this methods is most efficient performance wise, or if the difference is almost none.

There no different at all.
Be sure to resize it from the Image editor not from the properties bar.

but between the properties bar resize and the photoshop/image editor resize, the second option is better right?

I tried in a blank project with a random picture with the properties resize and in the debug test shows that 7mb of memory is being used. When I resize it with photoshop, the memory sed drops to 3mb or something....but with the second option sometimes there's a lot of quality loss.. I guess it's something I have to live with! :(
