Pan and Zoom / Distortion Effects

Pan and Zoom

Unlike the panning (scrolling) and zooming in the editor window, PhotoDemon provides a dedicated Pan and Zoom tool that allows you to permanently scroll or zoom the image. Subpixel accuracy (tenths of a pixel) allows you to move the image with very fine detail.

Like other distortion tools in the program, five options are provided for dealing with off-canvas pixels (clamp, erase, ignore, reflect, wrap). A dedicated Quality option uses bilinear interpolation to further improve the quality of the final image.

Finally, like all PhotoDemon tools, a dedicated command bar allows you to save and load custom presets, randomize parameters, and reset to default values. Last-used settings are automatically saved and restored, and all changes provide a real-time preview (no click or mouse button release required).
