As an image processing and applied mathematics consultant, I contribute to the graphics libraries ImageMagick, VIPS (with GUI NIP2) and GEGL (with GUI GIMP).
My opinions RE: the best general purpose image resizing methods available through ImageMagick are at http://www.imagemagick.org/Usage/filter/nicolas.

I am quite pleased that Mathias Rauen reprogrammed my favorite image resampling method (formulated mostly by yours truly following the lead of Anthony Thyssen of ImageMagick), namely Clamped Elliptical Weighted Averaging with deblurred Jinc-windowed Jinc 3-lobe, into his madVR video renderer, and that it is currently the consensus favorite.
