I have a bunch of 1000x1000 grayscale images, and I display thumbnails of them by using StretchBlt, setting the mode to HALFTONE. While you can tell what the thumbnails are of, they have, well, sort of a "denim" (yeah, like your jeans) quality/texture look to them which I've been told "is not good enough"
ha! so anyway, I've tried some of the other stretchblt modes and none of them make good looking images (I'm taking them from 1000x1000 down to about 85x85, and even smaller as the number of thumbnails I have to display in the given area increases)
Can somebody recommend an alternative to stretchblt that will give me quality thumbnails?
