Displayed Image Quality

Post by Ty »

I don't know if this qualifies as a "bug," but it may be a situation/condition that you want to investigate.

I got a new PC yesterday and temporarily had Picasa as my default image viewer. This morning when an image displayed, I wanted to look at it in XnView, and so I had the same image displayed in both Picasa and XnView on the screen at the same time. I was quite distressed to see that this image (a 25K PNG file) was much clearer in Picasa than in XnView. I made sure they were the same display size, moved the image around the screen, did everything I could think of to eliminate differences. But regardless of what I did, the Picasa display was much better than XnView's. Here's the comparison:

I hope this is helpful info and can be used to improve XnView's display.

Do you have tried without "high zoom quality/reduce"?

Pierre, that "fixed" the problem, thank you. I wonder if "high zoom quality / reduce" should be the default?

Thanks.

It's not a fair comparison when you have image in XnView scaled 99%, and in Picasa at 100%.
