General Questions

Reshade Image Resizer is a powerful tool, is it really free-ware?
Yes, Reshade is 100% free for everyone to use for personal or commercial purposes, with no expiry date and no pixel size limitation – within available memory.
Some sites are showing Reshade as a commercial application. Why is that?
Some 3rd party software directories/download sites may not show correct or updated information about Reshade. As long as you download Reshade from our official web-page, the application is completely free.
How is Reshade different than using Photoshop?
First of all, Reshade is free to use, whereas Photoshop is not. Second, for anyone including Photoshop professionals, it takes a significant amount of time to improve on the default interpolation. With Reshade, it’s easy and fast to achieve great high-definition image resizes.
I downloaded and installed Reshade. Why does the interface look different then in the screenshots?
Reshade is currently at version 3.0. Please make sure to download the installer from our official web-site to get the latest update.
Is Reshade Image Resizer dependent on any application framework?
Reshade is a native Windows application. It doesn’t require Java or the .NET Framework to be installed. It does need the Microsoft Visual C++ redistributable package to be installed. The Reshade installer makes sure that it is available on your computer.

Using Reshade

I saved my first image, but when I open it, it's not zoomed?
If this happens, try opening the image at actual pixels/full size/100% zoom in your image viewer. When an image is displayed on-screen, it is often shrunk to fit the display area. To better appreciate the up-sized image please view it on a higher density retina-display or print it at high DPI resolution.
How come Reshade doesn't save the cropped image?
The small rectable on the right image pane in the Reshade GUI represents the selected preview that will be displayed on the left side pane. The entire image area is saved when crop is disabled. Reshade crops images only when the crop feature is active – crop check box is enabled.
How do I print high-resolution images?
Reshade is used to up-size images such that when they’re printed they will look clearer, sharper and overall better quality. The easiest way to print a reshaded image is to open it in the default viewer and choose print.
Can I make Reshade run faster?
Some parameters enable advanced features that take a longer time to process e.g. ‘Control’. A progress-bar will be displayed at the bottom of the screen when busy processing. To speed up the computation you will need a faster multi-core CPU.
Does Reshade have any limitations?
When using the 32bit version of Reshade you will be able to resize images containing up to 300 million pixels (30000×10000 pixels). On Reshade 64bit, the image size is not limited except by available internal memory.
