Pixelize is a program that will use many scaled down images to try to duplicate, as closely as possible, another image. Pixelize works by splitting up the image you want rendered (or duplicated) into a grid of small rectangular areas. Each area is analyzed, and replaced with an image chosen from a large database of images. Pixelize tries to pick images that best match each area.

    2009-02-24 - Uwe Hermann <uwe@debian.org> pixelize (1.0.0-1) unstable; urgency=low * New upstream release. + No longer uses Imlib, just gdkpixbuf (Closes: #456132, #508234). Thanks to Barry deFreese <bdefreese@debian.org> for the help! + Doesn't crash for files without extension anymore. It'll only save a file if you provide a known-good extension ('jpeg', 'png', and so on). The 'jpg' extension will _not_ work unfortunately! (Closes: #381482). * debian/control: + Standards-Version: 3.8.0 (no changes required). + Build-depend on libgtk2.0-dev instead of libgtk1.2-dev from now on. * debian/patches: + 10_small_fixes.patch: Update. + 20_makefile_fixes.patch: Update. * debian/watch: Add file. * debian/copyright: Switch to machine-readable format. * Mention that the manpages written by me are GPL'd. * debian/rules: LDFLAGS += "-Wl,--as-needed" in order to minimize deps.

    2007-12-21 - Uwe Hermann <uwe@debian.org> pixelize (0.9.2-4) unstable; urgency=low * Switch to cdbs and debhelper 5. * Standards-Version: 3.7.3 (no changes required). * debian/control: Add Homepage field. * debian/copyright: Updates, add Debian package license. * debian/menu: Move to 'Applications/Graphics' section (new menu policy). * debian/pixelize.1: Document that you have to create an image database (pic_db.dat) using make_db(1) first, before you can use pixelize. Better error message if no database is found (Closes: #381460). * debian/pixelize.xpm, debian/pixelize.desktop: Added icon and desktop file, taken from Ubuntu, thanks (Closes: #449249, #381529). * This package should not be removed from Debian (Closes: #456655). * debian/README.Debian: Small updates.
