@iseria97 said in Opera Text & Image Scaling, Bypass Scaling for Images:
I'm surprised there has been no discussion on it yet.(at least as far as I'm aware)
Because (by my count) you are only the second user (besides me) who seems interested in seeing pixel-perfect images.
If not, then this is chromium renderer problem (and most likely will never be fixed).
No one is interested. All this 'high-dpi scaling' appeared in browsers when 4K and similar monitors went mainstream. To allow single codebase, they (browser makers) applied same algorithm for all scaling - take original image, rescale it according to dpi and and then rescale it by user zoom factor. (This also means, that 125% dpi and 80% zoom include two rescalings ) 99% of users can't even tell the difference.
I'm not an expert programmer but how hard can it really be to just tell the browser to ignore images and upscale everything else?
Very hard - and for example on 4K screens with typical dpi scaling of 200% this makes webpages design go totally haywire.
Microsoft have managed to do it for Paint and Photos on Windows 11 so it can be done. Just a tick box for this in Opera settings would be a nice feature.
Paint and photos (and many more apps) are image viewers, not webpage renderers.
