Resizing

Does anyone know of a good way of resizing an image, whether small or bigger without it losing it's quality? Well, I use GameMaker to resize smaller without it losing quality, but when making things bigger, like a sprite, it gets out if hand and I've tried everything...

Is it even possible to make an image bigger without making it lose quality ?
The tool that you use to resize the image can't possibly know how to write any other colors "in the empty spots" than the ones already "in their parts".

I'm not quite sure how images are made larger but I really think it's impossible.
Your best bet would be drawing the image by hand :D

Re: Resizing

I found a program called Reshade, that gets the job done nicely. No quality loss whatsoever.

Reshade...I'll check it out. I've been using GIMP up until now, but it adds nasty gray outlining on most of my pixelovers.

Re: Resizing

I goofed...Reshade is all show, but does nothing different then any other tool. I tried converting the image to SFV and then PNG and it still looked crazy...I wonder how in the hell professionals manage to accomplish this.

Well, depending on your definition of quality, it’s the opposite—shrinking an image always loses information, while enlarging it will generally make it look blocky, but it can be reduced to the original size without losing information.

Actually, there are a lot of pixel art scaling algorithms. Some of them work quite well.

Re: Resizing

I kinda found a way. When in Paint, make the image bigger(could be correctly adjusted with more powerful image editors), press Alt+printScreen and paste into paint. Cut out the sprite and voila!
