In my experience (limited, I admit), resizing a bitmap can have a negative effect on quality ranging from slight to very great indeed. I suspect the former comes from an even numeric rescaling (e.g., 80% or 120%), while the latter is the consequence of repeated arbitrary resizings with the mouse. I don't know if resizing/rescaling causes pixels to be added/discarded, but it sure seems that way. When you specify a dpi setting, the pixels in the bitmap remain unchanged, only their spacing changes. Richard Richard G.
