ATTN: people on tumblr what post videogame caps. if your posts look like this you’re fucking up real hard and you need to check yourself.
1 - nearest-neighbor interpolation - you see how there’s this murky color creep between the purple and the blue? That’s because filtered scaling methods like to soften and add new colors. Always use nearest-neighbor interpolation when scaling.
2 - motherfucking aspect ratio. In the second image, do you see how uneven and irregular the pixels in the dither look? It’s fucked up, right? That’s because it probably started at 320px wide and was scaled up to 500pxw, tumblr’s standard. tumblr’s standard is fucking stupid. Always scale by doubles. If your source is 320x240, you have to scale it to 640x480. But that’s too wide for tumblr! Crop it, post a link to the full sized image.
If you’re going to go to the effort of posting these things, why not take the step to make sure they’re being displayed properly?
