Demo: Scale large images (1000's of pixels) to mid-sized (450 x 450 pixels) and thumbnails (150 x 130 pixels).

Image scaling tools

Twenty images of varying style and size are scaled using these tools:

  • EasyBatchPhoto 3.0.5 – scaling quality: smoother, sharpen: subtle, JPEG quality: maximum (100)
  • iPhoto '09 8.1.2 – JPEG, maximum quality
  • MediaManager 11.0.1 (a FileMaker Pro plug-in)
  • Photoshop CS4 11.0.1 – Resample image: BiCubic Sharper (best for reduction)
  • Pixelmator 1.6.5 – default scaling

Images – three sizes

  • all thumbnails on a single page
  • mid-sized images – click a thumbnail image on this page for a side-by-side comparison
  • full-resolution images:
    1. Click the full-res image size below the thumbnail images on this page.
    2. In the new window, click on the image to toggle between fit-to-window & full resolution.
