I never actually looked at what PIL could really do for me until tonight, so I 
wasn't aware before that it could do such interpolations... I'm very pleased 
that it does; only snatch is that it does lose the EXIF data on the resized 
image (not sure yet if I mind or not).

I saw the GIMP-Batch examples and it looked rather easy/doable to do this with 
GIMP batch but then when I looked at the GIMP procudures I got rather confused 
about which GIMP function to use for the actual resizing...

I'm almost convinced to just use Python, with either ImageMagick or PIL. I 
wrote 90% of the required Python script already, just need to glue together the 
final pieces.

Thanks all for hearing me and for advice :-)

Is PIL's interpolation not as good as GIMP's, even when using resize
with BICUBIC or ANTIALIAS? I wasn't ware of that.
