Hi my esteemed listmates,
I need to take a graphic I download (with permission) off a Website and
make it 1920x1080, or larger by the same ratio so its quality will be
It would be even better if I could convert it into 3840x2160.
Has anyone been able to accomplish this in Libre Writer? Libre Draw? Or a
FREE Windows tool?
I understand Photoshop can do that but I don't have Photoshop so I need to
accomplish this with something simpler like MS Paint.
Has anyone achieved these improved graphic results with MS Paint?
If so, could you pls share the steps?
I'm guessing it can be done in GIMP but GIMP and I are not in sympatico.
Thank you kindly.
GIMP or ImageMagick are what I would use for this. With ImageMagick,
you can use the "convert" command to scale the image. Just keep in
mind, when you upscale an image, its quality will suffer since image
data is being "created". If you're not worried about that, either of
those tools would work. It's been a VERY long time since I've done this
BUT there was a free Windows utility you could install that would add
image scaling to the context menu of an image file. So, you could
right-click the file and choose the "scale" (whatever it's called) menu
option to scale it up or down.
I just don't know if that utility exists still or if it's compatible
with Windows 10 or 11.
