Intrepidis Posted January 16, 2021 Share Posted January 16, 2021 (edited) xBRZ PaintDotNet Plugin This is a file type plugin. It's used to increase the resolution of an image while writing it out as PNG. The result can look especially nice for pixel art graphics. The xBRZ upscaling routine is primarily designed to increase the resolution of pixel art. This file saving plugin lets you choose from 2 times to 5 times the resolution, to scale-up the output image. It uses a "scale by rules" approach, which means it tries to intelligently determine the edges of a character's face or their eyes, or diagonal lines, and increase the resolution while keeping the image sharp and smooth. Actually it was originally created for video game emulators, to make old game graphics have a remastered quality. Here's the download: http://bit.ly/xBRZ-PDN-Plugin20210131-2 Source code repository: (I think this is visible to everyone...)https://dev.azure.com/intrepidis/xBRZ/_git/xBRZ.NET?path=%2FxBRZ PaintDotNet Plugin The build pipeline: (maybe there's a newer version there)https://dev.azure.com/intrepidis/xBRZ/_build?definitionId=1&_a=summary BTW, I wanted to add the option to the Image menu, but it seems like there's no official way to do this, right? If you know then please comment below. Thanks. WARNING! It doesn't handle transparency very well, it just treats see-through parts as black. Here are example before and after images, and then an example of the interface when saving.
