Image really degrades when using lv_img_set_zoom, is there another option aside from using a larger image?


Is there any better way to scale an image up? I resize an image in Swift or Android (using FIT_CENTER) and it seems to be very smooth, but when I do it in lvgl it doesn’t look anywhere near as good. Is there a better algorithm for scaling up?

What MCU/Processor/Board and compiler are you using?

nRF52832 PineTime Dev Kit

What LVGL version are you using?


What do you want to achieve?

Resize an image

What have you tried so far?

Resizing using lv_img_set_zoom and lv_img_set_antialias.

Code to reproduce

Add a code snippet which can run in the simulator. It should contain only the relevant code that compiles without errors when separated from your main code base.

The code block(s) should be formatted like:

void main(void)


	lv_obj_t * img = lv_img_create(lv_scr_act());
	lv_obj_align(img, LV_ALIGN_CENTER, 0, 0);

	lv_img_set_src(img, &TEST_TRUE_COLOR);

	lv_img_set_antialias(img, true);
	lv_img_set_zoom(img, 1024);

	for (;;) {



Hmm on the planet dont exist software, that on 4x pixel image zoom or any enlarge create missed pixels… You need vector image here

Maybe not but the screen is 419x419 and the image looks big and bright with a lot less pixelization. I do have svg and would love to use it but can’t with lvgl currently.

ai could :slight_smile:
