Best way to increase 16x16 to 32x32

Post by Peter2 » Sat Apr 27, 2013 2:11 pm

I have many bitmaps 16x16 which should be increased to 32x32 - and they should keep the quality. I mean "increase size +100%" is not the entire solution; the image should be fine and sharp. Is there a way to get a good result with batch- converting?

Thanks

Hi Peter (o:

When choosing the best algorithm for enlarging your icons, the type of content (photos vs. clipart) has to be taken into account.

Hi XnTriq

thanks for the mass of information. What I need is to resize "simple" icons (clipboard style, not too many colours, not very detailed). I contacted Pixenlarge for more details.

Have a good time

Sometimes less is more (-;

Pixenlarge seems to utilize (one or more of) the requested pixel art scaling algorithms.
