This is why most sites shlap giant watermarks on "their" images.


Hmm, TMK could use an official "logo."

Watermarks are for the devil.

Why use one?  To get less people to use the images?  Or to drive up the filesize?

To prevent image theft. It can be bypassed (via tons of editing), but it takes more effort than it's probably worth.

Yeah, but obviously Deezer doesn't care about people taking the images.  There would be nothing to gain.

I think watermarks on images are silly, especially these days where you see a hundred sites that all have the same screen shots. Anyway, I'm just glad GI deemed my screen shot fit for their magazine.

Indeed they did.  And perhaps I should retract that "monkey work" comment, since the image before TMK's clearly doesn't get it right.

The search I did, without quotation marks, had some Super Game Boy screenshots that I guessed they didn't use because getting simple black and white is better all the time better.

Is it just me or is the one in the magazine a higher resolution than the one on the gamepage?
It doesnt look blurry as if someone had resized it 2-3x

It would only look blurry if someone resized it with antialiasing.
That was a joke.

It's all in the resampling.

Nearest neighbor resampling (good for this situation):



Bicubic resampling (good for most other situations, default in Photoshop):

Well, your screenshot is on the first page of a google image search of 'Mario Picross.' That's how they probably got a hold of it. That's pretty cool though.

No, it wasn't a bump. The rules say:

Quote from: Deezer
No bumping for the sake of bumping. Bumping is posting in an inactive thread for the sole purpose of moving it to the top of the list.
Also, I wonder if the magazine ever realized that Mario's Picross is a Game Boy game, meaning that it won't be released on the VC.

History repeats itself. Technically though, nothing new happened with that post; DeadAwake already pointed out the Google deal.
