This function scales the image inside of the HyperSnap workspace to fit the dimensions you select. When scaling, you can keep the aspect ratio or you can alter each axis independently, which will cause the image to distort.

After selecting this function a dialog box appears where you can choose a percentage of the original size to scale up or down, or change the direct pixel-based dimensions.

Scale slider

Drag this tool left and right to quickly control the scaling tool percentage of original size value.

Percent of Original Size

Define a percentage of original image value to use when scaling the image. The default is 100% or no change.

This value will effect a change in the pixel values, below, as you change it. You can alternately change the pixel values to effect changes here, the controls are linked.

Width, in pixels

Define a pixel width size to use for the image. If you’ve checked Keep aspect ratio, this is linked to the height, which will also change to match the current ratio.

Height, in pixels

Define a pixel height size to use for the image. If you’ve checked Keep aspect ratio, this is linked to the width, which will also change to match the current ratio.

Set scale to current selection rectangle

If a selection rectangle is defined on the active image in the workspace, click this button to set your scale image parameters to the size of the rectangle.

Keep aspect ratio

Check this to link the aspect ratio of both width and height to keep the image from becoming distorted. If you do not link the values, and select different ratios for the two dimensions, the image may appear "squeezed" or "stretched."

Interpolation mode

Select the method that the program uses to “smooth” pixels of a scaled image by interpolating between areas. The default method is “High Quality Bicubic”, which in most cases provides the best results.
