Upscaling of small images

Postby Sigma on Sun Jan 25, 2009 12:58 am

First off, I stumbled into this program while looking for simple photo viewes, and boy am I glad that I did. The speed is unbelievable and it's nice to use the GPU for something besides just games. Really outstanding work!

I'm using FPV as a simple fullscreen image viewer to sort through the photos I've taken over the years. The problem is some of the oldest ones are from ancient 1MP cameras so they're fairly small when displayed on a 1920x1200 screen. Other programs I've used (Xnview, Irfanview) allow for upscaling of the image when doing slideshows so that they fill the screen. I realize this causes a loss of quality, but it's something I miss.

At any rate, keep up the great work. :)

I second that... Also the upscaling algorithm should be configurable, including Lanczos, possibly spline and in general meet the specs of IrfanView. Having the calculations made in the GPU will offer the competitive advantage!
