Hate this mailing list format

However scaling down a very large image can be done using an application nip2.

see: http://www.vips.ecs.soton.ac.uk/index.php?title=VIPS

I have not tried this in Windows, I use linux.
Windows versions can be found at
http://www.vips.ecs.soton.ac.uk/supported/current/win32/
Despite the "/win32" the zips are named "_w64", so I assume 64 bit. no
installer, unpacks to folders.

For this demo (in linux) scaling a 1197 MB png to a 20 MB jpg.
