jim100361 Posted March 1, 2012 Share Posted March 1, 2012 (edited) This is simply a question of curiosity than anything necessarily specific to PDN. I am curious about a video's cards "impact" on working with images. Now as I understand it, as an example, if you're using a lower-end video card on your system and you download for instance some HD picture and you simply display that picture, that because of the card's "limitations" then it just simply doesn't display the extra amount in terms of resolution beyond what it is designed for. My question though has more to do with if you do something to an image and re-save it. Aside from whichever file format you save it to and the specific change to the image, but just for the sake of argument, let's assume it's .png format. When you re-save the image, is the resolution further dropped down to match the card's capabilities? Or does it save it still with all that info that the original had but just isn't able to be displayed to that level on that same machine?
