<tip type="web graphics optimization" author="Steve Rider">
When downsizing a large photographic image for the web, do it in steps 
if it's being reduced more than 50%.  Reduce in 50% increments, and 
between each such step, apply an "Unsharp Mask" or similar filter.  
This will allow you to retain a good amount of perceived detail (such 
as edges) that would be otherwise lost by resizing in one big step.
