Frequently Asked Questions
Sometimes I get asked questions that aren't speciffically related to using the software. I'll try to provide answers to those questions below.
- How can I donate to the Image Resizer project?
Call me crazy, but I don't accept donations. My employer pays me enough to code. Everything I do outside of work, I donate to the community for free. The biggest contribution you can make is to spread the word: Tweet, Like, blog about, or do whatever you do to let your friends know just how handy this little utility can be!
- What formats does Image Resizer support?
By default, image files with the following extentions can be resized: bmp, dib, gif, ico, jpe, jpeg, jpg, png, tif, tiff, wdp. However, Image Resizer will also be able to use any Windows Imaging Codecs (WIC) that have been installed. For example, after installing the Microsoft Camera Codec Pack, vendor-specific formats from Canon, Nikon, Sony, Olympus, Pentax, Leica, Minolta, Epson, and Panasonic can also be resized.
- Does Image Resizer use nearest-neighbor, bilinear, or bicubic interpolation?
Starting with version 3, Image Resizer actually uses a Fant resampling algorithm, which produces a higher quality output than all of these. For more information on the algorithm, see A Nonaliasing, Real-Time Spatial Transform Technique.
