Image Scale Algorithm

We added a new section Image with one drop-down parameter Scale Algorithm to specify how scaling of the image should be done. We have three options to choose from:

  • Auto. A browser chooses the best available algorithm.
  • Crisp Edges. The image is scaled with an algorithm that preserves contrast and edges in the image. Generally intended for images such as pixel art or line drawings, no blurring or color smoothing occurs.
  • Pixelated. The image is scaled with the "nearest neighbor" or similar algorithm, preserving a "pixelated" look as the image changes in size.

The Crisp Edges option is not supported in all browsers:
