Images: Improving quality

VideoScribe has a default image quality setting for all images. Let's look at how to change it...

CAUTION: Overall performance can be degraded if too many images are imported at very high quality, so only adjust the settings if it is necessary for your project.

 

By default, VideoScribe sets the image quality to 800 pixels. This is usually the optimum setting for a balance between image quality and performance. 

When you alter the default setting, the change will only be applied to images that are imported after the change was made. Images in your recently used history will be added to the canvas at the quality that was set when they were first used. 


To change the default image quality setting in VideoScribe follow these steps:

Step 1: 

  • Click on the cog icon (A). This is located in the bottom left corner of the projects screen.

The projects screen is the first screen you see after logging in to VideoScribe. It contains all of your locally saved scribes, your online scribes and is where you go to create a new scribe.

 


Step 2:

  • Click the +/- icons next to ‘Default image quality’. Select (B) to increase and decrease the quality setting for images.
  • Click the tick icon to save the changes (C).

 

 

Step 3: 

  • Open or create a new scribe and any images added to the canvas will be at the new image quality setting. Remember that images in your recently used history will be added to the canvas at the quality that was set when they were first used.
  • If you are using the images in the VideoScribe image library or importing your own SVG images, you can increase the quality up to a maximum of 4000 pixels. You will see that the image remains sharp when zooming in.

NOTES:

  • You cannot improve the quality of a low-resolution JPG or PNG image by increasing the default image quality in VideoScribe.
  • The default image quality setting does not affect animated GIF images or text elements.
