I just downloaded the 2.3.5 snapshot and had a go with the Lanczos
resizing algorithm. It seems to bring out some strange artifacts in one
photo (actually, the first I randomly tried).
Looking at the original, I can see what it's accentuating but it looks
bad. Other photos look great, much sharper compared with the cubic
algorithm. This seems rather too sharp, in the wrong place.
Is this normal?
