Image Sizes

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Thu Dec 29, 2011 4:49 am

Just a quick question. If I import a large graphic and then resize it to something smaller in construct, will the exported project contain the original graphic (large) or will it be re-formatted to the smaller picture?

If you resize in the picture editor then it will be smaller size.

If the texture itself is resized, the image file will be affected.
But if you don't alter the texture at all, the image file will NOT be affected.

So, if you change size of texture within picture editor, that's the first case.

If you just change bounding box size, angle etc., that's the second case.

Construct 2 does not stretch any images on export since in many situations this would degrade the visual quality of the game. The *only* processing applied to images on export is lossless recompression, described in our latest blog post.

Resizing objects stretches the source image, it doesn't make a new image. However, there's a resize button in the image editor, which you can use to stretch the source image.
