Summary: smeared title when installing

Initial Comment:
Python 2.4b1 on Windows XP.  1280x800.

The "python: for windows" heading looks smeared.

Other graphical elements also look somewhat 
smeared, but it isn't as much of a problem when it 
isn't text to begin with.

We would need to ask the original author of that picture. I
have not been able to contact him; please try yourself.

Using PCbuild/installer.bmp might indeed be an option. I
could try to arrange the dialogs so that it won't need scaling.

Would it be possible to recreate the original picture (or at 
least parts of it) at the full size, instead of stretching?  If the 
picture parts have to be stretched, that isn't such a 
problem, but it is better if the button frames aren't 
stretched -- and particularly the text.

Even just replacing the "windows: python" with blank space 
and text (or redoing that one portion at full size -- maybe 
not aliased?) would help.

Is this the highest-level source?  If so, what size would you 
like it stretched to, and I'll see if I can help.

I don't know what to do about this. Any suggestion
appreciated; without suggestions, this likely is what 2.4
will look like.

The "smearing" is the effect of a small bitmap picture, with
aliased text, blown up (stretched) to fit into a large
space. The graphic has fat pixels, which look a little
funny, but they look better if you squint :-)

I used a .bmp to avoid additional info loss.  Zipped file is 
only 20K, but unzips to over a meg.
