Maybe these links shed some additional light (I found them useful):

QImage seems to do a fabulous job (have not tried it myself). My experience is that Lightroom does a wonderful resampling job as well since version 3. Very easy, very good output.

Which is better if you don't have 300 ppi to work with for printing, to print with fewer pixels or to resample to interpolate and increase number to 300 ppi. Neither is ideal, but is one better than the other? I see that most commercial printing labs "require" 300 ppi files whether you have that many naturally in the captured image or not. Until recently most cameras didn't capture enough pixels to print an 8 X 10 using that standard yet I'm sure 8 X 10 and even larger was fairly normal. For a commercial print you wouldn't have a choice, you would have to resample. For a home print, however, you have a choice. Please weigh in on which option is best. Thanks.
