More on FAQ #705
705. Are there any limits on what resizing can be done in a TCQ photograph?
There are no limits that are unexpected or burdensome.
A. A TCQ photograph can be resized by increasing (“up-rezzing”) or decreasing (“down-rezzing”) the resolution.
B. There are no limits to how much a TCQ photograph’s resolution can be decreased — until it gets to small to see, that is — but sometimes there are visual limits to how much a photograph’s resolution can be increased before it would be disqualified by rinairs (in Q7).
C. A TCQ photograph can be downsized by reducing the Canvas Size (also called “cropping”; see #751)
D. A TCQ photograph cannot be upsized by increasing the Canvas Size or it will be disqualified by Q2.
For example, TCQ photographers cannot increase Canvas Size to add a strip of blank image area at the top of a photo to clone in some blank blue or gray/white sky.
E. All resizing is confined to the entire image. Individual elements, portions, or areas of the photograph may not be resized apart from the rest of the image; that’s why the word “within” is in Q2. (More on the most commonly resized element, the moon)
