FAQ.How to scale a picture proportionally?
Feedback.

Answer: For a proportional scaling, we calculate the new picture size relative to the target maximum size.
Example:
Function ProportionalScaled(extends pic as Picture, Width as Integer, Height as Integer) As Picture
// Calculate scale factor

dim faktor as Double = min( Height / Pic.Height, Width / Pic.Width)

// Calculate new size
dim w as Integer = Pic.Width * faktor
dim h as Integer = Pic.Height * faktor

// create new picture
dim NewPic as new Picture(w,h,32)

// draw picture in the new size
NewPic.Graphics.DrawPicture Pic, 0, 0, w, h, 0, 0, Pic.Width, Pic.Height

// return result
Return NewPic
End Function
Notes:
This does not handle mask, but you can scale the mask the same way and assign it to the new picture.
(see other FAQ entry with mask)
