    Way to go, Bruce!! <img src=/S/thumbup.gif border=0 alt=thumbup width=15 height=15>

    After seeing my poor old Outlook 97 vainly trying to deal with HTML code, I can finally take a break and enjoy it in all its glory.

    Thanks!! <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    Re: IrfanView Resize/Resample Tutorial

    One question: which is the difference between the Resize and Resample options? As I imagine it, resizing would be like resampling with a default filter, or something... What am I missing?

    Thanks

    Re: IrfanView Resize/Resample Tutorial

    Hi, Diegol ~

    Resampling an image typically improves its quality. Increasing/decreasing size (resizing) without resampling often results in a blurry image, especially where text or certain detailed aspects of an image are concerned.

    Take an image for example, say a screenshot of a dialog box and select resize only to 50% and then compare same with resample and you will notice a significant difference.

    Re: IrfanView Resize/Resample Tutorial

    After your explanation I still get an image that resizing is a way of resampling using a standard filter (doing the trick quickly but at a high cost)... just trying to put it in words. <img src=/S/newbrain.gif border=0 alt=newbrain width=21 height=22>
    Judging from the results, I'll just go for the resampling.

    Thanks, Bruce.

    Re: IrfanView Resize/Resample Tutorial

    Hi, Diegol ~

    Resampling, which is set at default, is the better option. Resizing in IrfanView actually uses no filter and is nothing more than what you might do in a Word document by dragging a corner of a typical image and resizing.

    Re: IrfanView Resize/Resample Tutorial

    Edited by Diegol on 05/11/03 04:57 PM to correct algorythm -> algorithm <img src=/S/innocent.gif border=0 alt=innocent width=20 height=20>

    That pretty much approximates what I first thought. I didn't want to say resizing used no filters because I feared that no resizing could be done without a filter. Actually, I don't know what a filter is, but again, I imagine it's a sort of algorithm that programs use to... eh, resample images <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29>
