Enhance & Upscale

Resize & Expand

Image Resizing allows you to increase the resolution of your image to any size without losing quality, while adjusting the aspect ratio at the same time.

Choose from fit options to place your image on the required canvas:

Wide side: expands the wider side of the image to fit the edge of the canvas

Short Side: stretches the shorter side of the image to the edge of the canvas

Canvas: places the input image on the canvas defined by the width and height. The aspect ratio of the input image doesn't change. Extra space is filled with the background color

smart - a content-aware cropping mode that detects an object in a photo and uses it as the center of the cropping area.
center - a basic cropping mode that crops from the center of the image, regardless of what is in the image.

Outpaint: generates a coherent background for an image to fit specified dimensions, scaling an image until the larger side reaches the edge of the canvas defined by width and height first, so that generation is symmetrical on either the left-right or top-bottom sides.
