why ? That’s totaly unprofesional…
You should make an auto resize or make it work for default size…
I don’t know if you are a technical user or a regular one, so I will provide two explanations.
Simple explanation: I don’t have the technical means to resize the images automatically. Other technical limitations prevent me to apply the effect to default size images. Read this as “this is the best that could be done with the resources available”
Technical explanation: As I mentioned, Gallery applies tiling to images to improve memory handling. If I resize the image from inside a plugin, I would be taking each individual tile and resizing it to the target size, but it would keep the tiles. Then, when applying the effect to those tiles, there would be visual artifacts in the borders of each tile. The images need to be resized and saved so that the new ones aren’t split into tiles.
This is a problem with the architecture of Quill, at the core of the MeeGo Image Editor, since it was designed with a different kind of plugins in mind.
Since the plugin is Open Source, everybody can check the algorithm I’m using and write a full-program (as opposed to a plugin) which does the operation on the full image, without applying tiling. In that case, this would work.
