Interpolation (Resize filter)

Interpolation is an estimation to average the values between certain points, and Honeyview supports the following 3 interpolations when zooming an image in or out.

- Bilinear Interpolation (Fast): When an image is zoomed in, new pixels are calculated based on the average of the neighboring 4 pixels in the resulting image. This method is widely used for high quality and fast speed zooming in/out. » Search in Wikipedia

- Bicubic Interpolation (Slow, High Quality): When an image is zoomed in, new pixels are calculated based on the average of the neighboring 4 or more pixels in the resulting image. » Search in Wikipedia

- Lanczos Interpolation (Slow, High Quality): This method provides high quality and definition. » Search in Wikipedia
