O.P. Display Picture Resizing
Hey guys.  I'm here, yet again for advice or recommendations for my script.  I know I should probably do more on my own, but I don't really know how to.

My dilemma is this.  My script (X360+) automatically downloads the icon of the current XBOX game from xbox.com, but the icons are all 64x64, and Messenger upscaling to 96x96 makes them look incredibly pixellated.
Is there any way to change this.  Either by automatically making the images to have a border before making them the dp, or to just prevent the upscale somehow?

cheers guys

You can use Gdi to add a background.

OK.  I'll have a look around.  Can you recommend any scripts that I could use to learn from, and will it be fully supported on all, or require extra stuff (don't know muhc about it).

iTunes+ script does some image manipulation IIRC. I think that's where I got the basic code for my ChangeMe! script
