Really cool algorithm, I really enjoy pixel art and this doesn't totally destroy it like most of these algorithms do.
I wish this sort of software would become native in cameras
..I recognized the dolphin sprite immediately. Huh.
really neat, i can already see minecraft mods of some sort from this :)
Nice! This is actually pretty cool. This should get added to the emulators. I lost quite a bit of time on the comparison page just flipping through the algorithms: http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/people/kopf/pixelart/supplementary/multi_comparison.html
Yay computer science resarch! This could be used to help improve image quality on highly-compressed images. Of course we'd never actually butcher pixel art ;)
Not sure what to think...I kind of don't like it because it destroys all the hard edges I liked when they were 8-bit, and turned them all gelatinous. I do want to try that EPX though. Either way, it's Microsoft's, so they are not going to share it easily if it gets to the public.
Ehh... needs work identifying very small features and not melding them to adjacent shapes.
Hmm, I wonder what this will be used for...
