You need to pre-sharpen before resize. It takes a some to get

I'd like to better understand your technique, Iliah.

When using 10% steps, are you applying a light sharpening at each step?

When using bicubic sharper, do you then apply a light sharpen if needed after downsizing to target?

Are you using PS or are you resizing NEF with your program, before using PS? If using PS, which sharpening method do you prefer, ie smart sharpen, normal USM, etc? The reason I ask is that most people advise a workflow of presharpening, edit, resize, then final sharpening.

thanks
