Research is needed if quality of resizing with canvas can be improved #354
By default resizing with the help of canvas in a browser works much worse than resizing on server thus the qualities of the resized images are different when we take same image and:
We should make a research to find out whether there is anything we can do about it. I have seen some attempts being made e.g.
Please also see the resizing results for CKFinder 3 (canvas, php), CKFinder 2 (PHP) and paint.net (.net custom library for comparison):
I know the tools is using canvas but if canvas can't be improved then perhaps as an alternative there could be a way to create configuration setting where user can select between canvas and server-side library.
In that second case initial resizing could be done in browser (so that user culd see result faster) but the final resizing would be done on server, meaning image path and parameters would be sent instead of the resized image. I'm not sure how it would work on case of other Edit settings.
