Feature in Vista that I personally think is cool..(56k)

42 replies 3 views Edited Apr 12, 2007
In Vista when you "stretch" A small picture to make it into a background it still looks as smooth and good as it did as a small picture..

But in XP and lower it doesn't, it distorts the image, and makes it unusable as a background. Here is a picture I used, I'm using a basic 1280x768 Picture on a 1600x1200 Resolution.

I'm also dual booting XP/Vista encase anyone was wondering...

You can see on XP how the picture distorts and is pixelated in places. (This is Windows XP Pro SP2)


On Vista though, its not, its exactly the same as it was but bigger.
(I had to cut it down for Sizer purposes, the Full size came out to 2.23mb..... 0_<;Smiley Wink



This is a useful feature.. I know this isn't going to make anyone run out and buy Vista who already hasn't, I'm just pointing this out.

How much is the cheapest vista. I kinda want it. I had the toolbar thing before. Deleted it. Shake owns all. This is the Drizzle.

It's actually more likely to be a video card feature than a Vista one. It's anti-aliasing the picture. Probably because it updated your video drivers when you upgraded to Vista or something. You can set anti-aliasing on to full time in the control panel usually. Update your video drivers in XP.

Nope, same video card, same exact drivers. Its not The Video card/Drivers.

Trust me.
