  • Pixel Art Scaling Comparison Part 2

    · 2 minute read

    I’ve been playing with a few other scaling algorithms in the 2dimagefilter project. They produce even more impressive results than the previous batch… Part 1 showcased the Eagle, SuperEagle, SaI and SuperSaI algorithms. I will continue here with EPX/Scale, HQx, xBR and xBRZ.

  • Pixel Art Scaling Comparison Part 1

    I’ve been playing with a few scaling algorithms in the 2dimagefilter project. They produce quite impressive results when fed pixel art, and the fact that emulators are able to run them in real time is just mindboggling. Here I’ve chosen a bunch of images to showcase the Eagle, SuperEagle, SaI and SuperSaI algorithms. Part 2 continues with the EPX/Scale, HQx, xBR and xBRZ algorithms.

  • Image Comparison

    I wanted to compare two images side by side for my articles on pixel art scaling (parts one and two), to show the difference between various algorithms. The TwentyTwenty jQuery plugin does this beautifully, but I wanted to avoid external dependencies.

  • Magnifying Glass

    I wanted a magnifying glass effect for my articles on pixel art scaling (parts one and two), to show the difference between various algorithms. There are a few jQuery plugins that do this, but I didn’t want to add external dependencies, and this was a good excuse to play with the canvas element.
