I would jsut like to note that when using the dual wallpaper setting, your scaling algorithm for stretching wallpapers is.... well... underpar i guess. The aliasing problems when stretching someting even slightly is HORRIBLE, curves turn into zigzags. Otherwise wonderful program and I hope this is updated at some point.. well enough so the scately clad girls on my desktop dont look like they have been hacked to pieces

Are you comparing to the same image being scaled in Photoshop or another image editing program?

UltraMon uses Windows to do the scaling, and so far I haven't noticed any image quality issues.

BTW, which version of Windows are you using?

Im using Xp and when I have Xp scale a new backgroud (when it puts them on both monitors) everything seems fine and dandy, then I try using the dual wallpapers things and the second I apply it both wallpapaers they "change" so all the transitions from one color, change from the windows one being smooth, to the ultrramon one of being jagged. Well if your using the windows scaler than im confused lol, has anyone else noticed this

I'll try to reproduce this, please let me know what the size of the source image is and what resolution the monitor is using.

Thanks for the information.

I have now been able to reproduce the issue, with the image scaled by UltraMon there is pixelation in some areas of the image, when scaled by Windows XP there are no visible scaling artifacts.

This issue will be fixed in the next release.
