Optional up-scaling of small images
I show Instagram images on the frame that are mostly 800x800 at the moment. This are slightly less than the device resolution, so I got a black frame around images.
This is also essential for gif animations, as they are usually quite small and take about 20-30% of the screen space.
Is there any chance you can add an upscale option, so more screen space is used?
we wil implement a mode
Fit to screen (keep ratio)
which will apply only if the picture is not really small, meaning that the condition will be something like maximum different with the screen less than 30%, otherwise more than that it will be really look too pixelated till not acceptable.
That sounds good, thank you!
Sure, the images will be pixelated a bit, but does it really matter from 2-3 meters distance? On the other hand, this helps to use the whole large screen of your devices (the reason I bought it :).
I don't think adding one more display mode is a big pain from the development or UX points of views. Bigger image is better, anyway.
I tried that and it doesn't work for me. The images are from Instagram and are 800x800. They displayed with ~100px black borders at top and bottom and slightly larger borders from left and right.
Also the "Smart fill" option mentions distortion, that's not what I suggest. My idea is to upscale such images without distortion, so there are no borders on top and bottom and borders at the left and right should be smaller. The image should be still square, not distorted, but takes as much screen space as possible.
