Enlarging images?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I remember seeing a program around that allowed you to enlarge images a lot, with minimal quality loss (can't remember the technical term, but the program basically estimates what the new pixels would look like).

Has anyone created a plugin that can handle this sort of thing?

There's a nice little shareware application called STOIK that uses an algorithm called "smart interpolation" to resize images with superior accuracy. I was actually going to suggest implementing an algorithm like that a few months back, but had forgotten about it :)

Unfortunately [or at least to my knowledge], it's impossible to create a plugin for this because Paint.NET doesn't allow a plugin to resize the canvas. However, that doesn't mean that Rick or Tom can't add that to Paint.NET's resize dialog.

Sounds to me like it would work. Taking a cue from the Align Objects plugin...

And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
