[filmscanners] RE: Postprocessing - Resizing for screen display



Actually, he is wanting to make desktop wall paper for his wife; but he
and his wife want the wallpaper image to be as crisp, sharp, and clear
as a high resolution and quality monitor displayed image as contrasted
to the lower resolution and quality typical wallpaper images.  So you
initial understanding was correct and the points you made about
resolution and aspect ratio are good points.  In part, this is what I
was suggesting when I raised my questions about what was meant by
"resizing" and how it was being done as a preliminary issue to the
actual sharpening issues.

So you need not slink off into the corner with tail between your legs
but rather stand tall and proud. :-)
