Well, despite this random threadtitle, my question is actually quite reasonable. I want to resize this picture: to look like this: Warning: Spoilers inside! Requirements: ------------------ - Be able to adjust the size of the new higher res picture (e.g. give a width x height count) - Batch conversion potiential: convert multiple pictures in this fashion ( I have a few hundred to do). I know it is possible to get this effect done using Adobe Photoshops "Pattern/Fill" function. Paint.NET also has a similar function. However I would need to do this in batch. Its a simple "fill new picture of size X*Y with the old one instead of plainly resizing it. Thanks in advance for suggestions. MODS: Feel free to move this in an appropriate forum, I couldn't find a better one - sorry.
