Applying an interpolation function indiscriminately to an image, to resample it, will generally result in aliasing, edge blurring and other artefacts. The authors present an adaptive resampling algorithm for zooming up images. The algorithm is based on analysing the local structure of the image and applying a near optimal and least time-consuming resampling function will preserve edge locations and their contrast. This is done by segmenting the image dynamically into homogeneous areas, as it is scanned or received. Based on the location of the pixel to be computed (whether it is within a homogenous area, is on its edge or is an isolated feature), interpolation, extrapolation or pixel replication is chosen. The algorithm performance, from both a quality and a computational complexity aspect, are compared to different methods and functions previously reported in the literature. The advantage of the algorithm is quite apparent at edges and for large zooming factors
