We often have to shrink or enlarge the size of images, for instance, for sending to a friend, for upload on Facebook or Livehournal. By reducing size of images you can upload pictures rapidly. Here is best solution for resizing and reducing image size, Stoik Smart Resizer program.
Stoik Smart Resizer software is an powerful and easy program with big array of photo tools, that lets you enlarge or reduce picture size and resize images in batch mode. You may shrink images to any size you want by compressing or resizing options.
Enlarge pictures and make digital photo enlargements for celebrations, portraits, parties, wedding, birthdays and paintings!
What's new in STOIK Smart Resizer 3.
In STOIK Smart Resizer version 3 has been added all-new Super Resolution upscaling algorithm, an intelligent photo enlargement tool.The new Super Resolution algorithm maintains overall crispness, high level of details and straight, jaggy-free lines throughout the image.
The Smart Way to Resize Pictures and Make Large Photos
STOIK Smart Resizer program (Windows) can change image size: reduce or enlarge pictures size up to 1000% without losing image quality. Featuring smart resizing algorithms, STOIK Smart Resizer photo resize tool creates huge enlargements while maintaining image crispness and sharp look.
Resizing and Enlarging Digital Images
Printing huge enlargements from low-pixel count images is the first and obvious task handled by STOIK Smart Resizer software.
Posters, banner-size pictures and plotter jobs will benefit from a higher-resolution source.
Some stock agencies require a certain minimum resolution for considering an image for acceptance. Reduce image size is often needed to create tiny yet detailed previews and thumbnails.
The Built-In Tools
All photo editing programs have image resizing capabilities built into them. Some of them offer a choice between several algorithms such as Linear, Bilinear, and Bicubic. Advanced tools even distinguish between downsizing and enlarging the pictures. Why not just using the built-in capabilities to resize your pictures?
Most photo editors handle size reductions quite well, at least if you’re not trying to make a thumbnail of a 10 MP photo. When it comes to photo enlargements, the editors become surprisingly “dumb”. You'll end up with an enlargement consisting of pixels duplicated as many times as needed to create the image enlargement. Their "smart" enlargement algorithms will smooth the edges and apply some sharpening to the final image to create a sense of false detail, or false sharpness. In a word, if image quality is critical for the task, avoid using built-in image enlargement tools available in photo editors.
The Right Way to Reduce and Enlarge Images
STOIK Smart Resizer program handles image reducing and enlargements in a right way. Intelligent picture resize algorithms provide the best apparent visual quality while maintaining fine details. Huge photo enlargements up to 1000% are possible without sacrificing visual sharpness.
Image Resizing Algorithms
The quality of the final result depends on the algorithm used for image interpolation. Conventional interpolation methods such as bilinear or bicubic are not sufficient for creating a crisp enlargement, producing blurred or artificially-looking images.
STOIK Smart Resizer software includes an innovative Smart Resize algorithm, an in-house development by STOIK. The algorithm performs a thorough analysis of image content looking for common patterns such as natural textures, contours, and line art.
Adaptive interpolation methods are then applied selectively to specific areas in the image. The result is stunning: up to a certain enlargement, you won't be able to tell if the picture has been enlarged or was shot natively as a high-resolution image. No loss of visual sharpness is perceivable.
Printing from Camera Phones
Most cameras built into modern cell phones and communicators have quite low resolution. Typically, a 4x6 print is just about everything you can print without seeing the artefacts. STOIK Smart Resizer program can upsize images taken with cell-phone cameras to make their resolution sufficient for quality prints and enlargements.
