bad anti-aliasing when making thumb of big image

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I use paint.net since a couple of weeks now, but I have one big issue with it.

Often I have to make a thumbnail of a large image (about 10 or more megapixel).

I have noted that when I resize the image (with shift-T) then the resulting image is seriously lacking anti-aliasing.

I have attached 2 of these thumbs, one created by photoshop, the other by paint.net

Can this be resolved or can I change a setting to enable anti-aliasing during resizing?

Thank you,

thank you for your input.

I tried to do a resize, and then on "highest quality" it is indeed excellent.

However, my problem is that I usually first make a small image, then past my large image into it and resize it with shift+T . I would like to make this resize method also use my choice in the resize dialog as you mention.
