resize gimp vs paint


Recommended Posts

hello guys, i dont like gimp´s layout.. also it safes from every image a thumbnail which i dont like. i got 2gb of pics and from every of them a thumbnail..

this are the main reasons i want to switch to paint.net. but two questions / problems:

orig. image if someone wants to try it out:

gimp´s quality is much better at resizing (made that pic bigger).. did i set smth wrong in paint or is it just like that?

also: i found the magic wand but it selects everything automatically.. can i somehow follow the edges myself? like when i gut that girl on the image.. i want to cut it my own but have the programm follow her edges automatically? hope u know what i mean :D

thanks guys :)

Resizing images to higher sizes is tricky business, it always looks worse. Why do you need them bigger?

i want to cut it my own but have the programm follow her edges automatically? hope u know what i mean

You cant get a program to detect what you want them to cut out. However, manually, you could try this

Hope that helps.

well in gimp (and also photoshop) u have this cutter and u just move the mouse around what u want to cut. now when u arent 100% on the edge which u want to cut, the programm knows that and will still cut that place. e.g. for a very long edge u can quickly move the mouse over it and the programm will cut this edge.. or if u follow smth else it always knows how to cut that. Hard to descripe in english :(

anyone got an answer for the resizing stuff? :)

thanks
