Pixel-perfect scaling

Post by Bultro »

I would like to do integer resizing (enlarging) of images, for example 200% or 300% with every pixel becoming exactly a 2x2 or 3x3 square of the same color. This way pixel art becomes larger but retains exactly the same look, with pixel precision. I couldn't do it with any filter, they always interpolate the colors. Is it possible somehow?

Perhaps "Nearest Neighbour" ?

Open image in view mode (double click)
Image >Resize ...
choose width or height (200% ?)
Method : Nearest neignbour
Keep ratio
