Simple Pixel-Art Scaling tool with Scale3X algorithm.

This tool is open source. Its also free to use in the web browser. If you decide to help us continue doing stuff, you can buy the binary for a very small price!

WARNING: This is meant for small pixel art. Big images can take a lot to process. Antialiased borders won't look good, is intended for retro-looking art, and thus it will not add new colors to your palette!

Just load an image, select the scaling factor, and save it.

Example:


IF SOMEONE KNOWS XBR OR HQNX OR ANY OTHER BETTER ALGORITHM, I CAN ADD THEM IF YOU EXPLAIN THEM TO ME! :)

This tool is free to use, developed by Azagaya. You don't have to pay anything, but you can show support:

Thanks for the heads up! I fixed the link!

This is really cool! I want to use this but I'm worried it'll be really time consuming to convert all the assets in my game. Having a command line interface would be amazing where I could just do something like:

`scalenx.exe my-image.png 4`

Then I could automate on all the pngs in my assets folder rather than pulling them all in one-by-one.

Hi! Thanks for the suggestion. The New version supports multiple textures, but no CLI interface for now. ScaleNX uses a shader to do the effect, and afaik this cannot be done without opening a window. Perhaps the CLI interface could open the ScaleNX window hidden, do the job, and auto-close. I’ll investigate on this.

Thanks for the response! Even if it briefly opened a window, did the work, and then closed itself, that would be good enough.

Unrelated question: It says that it's open source but I don't see a link to the sourcecode anywhere? Is it on GitHub somewhere?

oh, why there is no link? i'll add it right now.

Very cool! I don't know much about how this stuff works, but the screenshot I tested out kept lookin' good even when I blew it up to a very large size, so it seems like a solid, useful tool.

Just a heads up: The only thing contained in the windows.zip file is the linux.zip file. :P

Oh, sorry, Ill fix the upload!

Done! Fixed now, would you try if it works for you?

Thanks a ton for supporting us btw! I really appreciate it.

Everything seems to be in its right place and working as intended now, yes! :) Thank you for making a cool thingymajig like this available! \o|
