More meaningful labels in resize dialog

Recommended Posts

Why not insert hints from the manual into the user interface. No one understands 'non-separable' outside the development team. I am sure Mister and Misses Steak doesn't understand the labels and the choice of algoritm at all with the current labels.

Suggestion:

  • Nearest Neighbor(hard edges)
  • Bilinear (reduction)
  • Bicubic (enlargement)
  • Lanczos 3 (high quality)
  • Lanczos 3 (highest quality)

I am not really sure why you have two Lanczos algorithms available there when the difference in processing speed and output is marginal.

Resampling methods

The following resample settings are available:

  • Nearest Neighbor—simple resampling which has the fastest processing time. Use for hard-edge images.
  • Bilinear—algorithmic resampling for use when shrinking images.
  • Bicubic—algorithmic resampling for use when enlarging images. Resampling is smoother than Bilinear but has a slower processing time.
  • Lanczos 3—complex algorithmic resampling which gives the best results but with the longest processing time. Available as 'separable' and 'non-separable'; the latter gives marginally better results, but is slightly slower than 'separable'.

I gave up using Designer for hobby use - a "professional" vector drawing program without actual vector features. Customers waiting for five years in vain is more than any company can ask for.

Maybe if Affinity Designer 2.0 gets real and advanced vector features I can it use. Until then... I am a customer, a potential upgrader and an active observer with an opinion. Currently I am slowly finishing a project I started in Designer.

That would be nice for people who don't know what they mean.
