jp2paint Posted October 12, 2012 Share Posted October 12, 2012 I'm about to start a project where I create a family calendar for 2013. If I get it done in time, it will be what I give out for Christmas presents this year. I have about 300 images that I want to fill in a grid 4 across and 4 high so that I can get 16 images per month. That won't use all 300 images, but I'll be able to pick the best of the bunch. Anyway, the image sizes range from 258x235 (WxH) to whopping 5616x3744 (WxH). If I make each of grid sizes very, very large so that I can fit the largest image, I suspect I'll have problems with RAM and the project will be very slow. If I make each of the grid sizes very, very small, then every time I try dropping a larger image onto the project, it's going to try stretching the canvas to fit the image or I'll have to struggle with squishing the images smaller. I have image resizing tools, but they typically do not generate the kind of quality I like from Paint.Net. Is there a technique that someone has come up with so that dropping a file that is too large into a region will shrink the image to fit the canvas ...or magnify an image that is too small?
