How To Enlarge Photos

(Imagener Enhanced, Professional & Unlimited versions)

Once Imagener has been downloaded, installed and launched a window which looks like the window above will appear. This section describes the Resize section. The Resharp section is described on the Resharp Help page.

1. In this box you input the value that corresponds to the measurement value choice in the dropdown box. The choices are:

  • Percent – this is the default measurement type used when you know the Percent amount you want to enlarge your photo.
  • Pixels – Use this measurement type when you have an exact size you know you want your resulting enlargement in Pixels.
  • cm – Use this measurement type when you have an exact size you know you want your resulting enlargement in cm or Centimeters.
  • Inch – Popular for traditional photos if you want to resize for a photo frame, or if you need an image to be a certain number of inches for printing.
  • Picas – Use this measurement type when you know an exact size you want your resulting enlargement in Picas.
  • Points – Use this measurement type if you happen to need a photo enlargement measured in Points.

2.The Height dropdown box is exactly the same as for the Width box above but here you choose a value for the image height. As long as you don’t uncheck the Aspect Ratio box this will be populated automatically when you input a Width. Likewise, if you input a value for Height first, the Width value will be automatically populated. For more information on the Aspect Ratio checkbox, see below.

Resize Section: Aspect Ratio (Keeping Width & Height Relative)

Image Enlargement Aspect Ratio Checkbox

All versions of Imagener include the ability to “de‑couple” the width and height such that pressing the “Resize” button will affect the width and height individually.

Usually image enlargement is performed maintaining a proportional aspect ratio

This function is the checkbox between Width and Height in the Imagener interface as shown to the above left. With this box checked, increasing either the width or height will affect the other dimension proportionally as shown above right. The image below left shows the normal enlargement procedure when the Aspect checkbox is checked, and the image below right shows what happens when this box is not checked.

Generally, for most enlargement and sharpening purposes you should always leave this box checked.

KEEP ASPECT BOX CHECKED

This animation shows the normal enlargement procedure when the Aspect checkbox is checked. Note: Unless circumstances specifically call for you to alter the dimensional integrity of an image, you should generally leave this box CHECKED.

ASPECT BOX UNCHECKED

Study this animation to see how the normal enlargement procedure is disrupted when the Aspect checkbox is NOT checked. Again please note: Unless circumstances specifically call for you to alter the dimensional integrity of the image, you should generally leave this box CHECKED.
