Re: About upgrade of fractal interpolation plugin
3 Months is a long period of time ;-).
Like i showed with this samples, the 3x image magnification works on uncompressed images really good there is nothing better*method as the fractal magnification in IA (*i cant find supersampling* as a downloadable programm to test it)
I worked with adams images to test the different methods.
IA fractal resizing algorithms at 3x scaling
vs. onOne Genuine Fractals 6 Pro as "The industry standard for image resizing"=159eur and
vs. BenVista PhotoZoom Pro 4 with "patented S-Spline Technology"=169eur
the original by adam:
here are the results 3X (but crops to save calcuation time and upload space):
BenVista PhotoZoom Pro 4 (Spline XL):
onOne Genuine Fractals 6 Pro (high details preset):
Image Analyzer fractal5squared (x3 region=14 regul=0,0001 filter=4 clampw=0 normalize=0 clampres=0)
Image Analyzer fractal9squared (x3 region=14 regul=0,00000061 filter=4 clampw=0 normalize=0 clampres=1):
the halos on the last 2 images are only a light distorsion from the JPEG algorithm.
If the source if uncompressed the dont show up.
My opnion is the 2 commercial products aren't worth the price.
They look like a slightly improved lanczos (i compared them), only the contrast was a bit higher,
only the Image Analyzer fracals could make small details visible (ompare the lines on the tree!)
it would be nice if adam could post his used parameters for the posted images
