I've gotten the best results using Imagemagick, and it's distortion based resize method, it's got some useful attributes (like supporting fractional pixel offsets), but is also much slower than the normal resize operator (It took my mac mini 3+ minutes to resize one image)

Does the Windows XP PowerToy Image Resizer still work on later versions of Windows? If so, that. :o

Why can't Microsoft include this (brilliant utility) as part of the OS?

The new version on codeplex is not as efficient, and probably requires .NET (slow).

XnView is one of the best.

Paint.NET's resize filters are pretty terrible, I would advise against it.

Interesting how pretty much every reply brings a totally new program. Looks like the testing could be a long process. Thanks though :)

Ok yes this is old. I juse Faststone resizer but found that it creates a larger file than normal. Average file is about 150 to 200kb for a 800px image. Using other programs results in 75kb size file. While I do love Faststones easy interface it just makes files too big
