Magnifier - Smooth filter RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey, I wonder if there is some way to add a smooth filter for Windows Magnifier? I tried some 3rd party programs but the fps is capped so when I move around the movement is choppy, while Windows Magnifier isn't.

     

    This would apply to Photo Viewer aswell but I found a great 3rd party program Inzomia Viewer so I could care less.

     

    I discovered that the image gets smooth if you move the magnify tools over the picture, I show with a screenshot.

    You can easily compare the 'O' in Micro and soft for some difference.

  • Hi tywald,

    Thanks for the post!

    When you use Magnifier on a low pixels picture, it will lower the picture quality.

    The reason you felt the 'O' seems different is that the transparent window effect that letter, kind of coverring the letter.

    The Magnifier cannot help you ehance the quality of the picture, just give you a larger one.

  • You can use a large, high pixels picture as your background if you want it to be clear under magnifier.

    The magnifier is just a tool, it cannot enchance the picture quality. Maybe in the futher there might be a tool can magnify, at the same time, enchance the quality.
