HOW TO GET MORE OUT OF IMAGENER
Photo Software That Surpasses Commercial Image Manipulation Packages

As mentioned in our previous photo software newsletters and especially the newsletter on image resolution, images are most commonly referred to as either high resolution or low resolution. High resolution images are those intended to be printed and usually have 300 dots per inch (DPI) or more. Low resolution refers to images created primarily for screen display and usually have 100 DPI or less.

Imagener will give different results depending on the resolution of the beginning image. Many of our customers use the Kneson Unlimited Resample Method for all images, but this can be shortsighted.

The Kneson Unlimited Resample Method is extremely powerful. It puts images through three major processes:

  1. Converts the image from raster to vector format
  2. Performs a sophisticated and intense stretching operation on the vectorized result
  3. Conversion back to raster format

This intense operation is somewhat overwhelming for many smaller and/or lower quality images. Think of it as cutting down a single blade of grass with a chainsaw - the Kneson Unlimited Resample Method is simply too powerful. You may be able to obtain better results using one of the other methods. Further, think of multiple ways to drive home from work. On any given day (for each specific image) there is a better way to get there (other Resample Methods will perform better).

All Resample Methods are sophisticated in the operation they perform, and all represent programmatic superiority to the methods for enlargement in expensive photo software packages like Photoshop® or Paint Shop Pro®. Notice in the partial screenshot above that there are three other Resample Methods, Normal, Bilinear and Bicubic. These three methods are the only methods used in expensive commercial photo software packages.

Also, do not think of the Kneson Progressive++ method as "the next best" in the list. All Resample Methods are algorithmically different and manipulate images in their own unique ways. You will achieve the best results by comparing multiple results for each image.
