Why Resize Up?

Top  Previous  Next

Why resize up? When you resize an image up you gain nothing in resolution, and the file size becomes larger and the image occupies more memory in your computer. So, why resize up?


Because in Repligator you can take a low to medium size image, size it up, apply an effect to it, and the effect will have a better resolution than the original image. If you do not use mixing options then the high res effect is even more effective.


An example, from a 640 x 460 image make a 1024 x 768 version using paste and resize, and then apply an effect to it with no mixing options. The final image is higher resolution than the original.


Alternatively, if you use vector graphics programs like Xara or Illustrator, you might be able to use the vector output (Pro version only) which in effect gives you infinite resolution.
