SaI Enlarger - Graphing enlarging utility
Version: 1.0SaI Enlarger is a simple 2x graphic enlarging utility for Macintosh.
Operating System: Mac OS X
It's really just a quick hack for personal use, but I think it's useful enough to share here.
The purpose of this program is to take small images and double their size (which quadruples the area and thus amount of detail possible) without producing an overly blocky or blurry image. This works best on simple images that don't have a huge amount of color variation, which is usually induced by dithering and antialiasing.
I made this program as a simple utility to double the size of some images I had drawn in a paint program. I wanted them to be double size, yet not doubly blurry or blocky. I searched for a way to do this, and discovered 2xSaI.
Here are some key features of "SaI Enlarger":
· Choose whether an 8-bit, 16-bit, or 32-bit image is created.
· For enlarging images intended for a certain type of transparency, you can make pure white seperate from the image instead of being blended with it.
· You can select whether colors that are almost equal are blended. Sometimes this makes colors that should be blended stay seperate, while other times it enables the program to recognize color patterns it wouldn't have before, so the user can choose.
