i usually need different size of image for different situations ( web
publish, sharing with friends, etc. ).  so it seems practical to
complete all editing on the image before do the downscaling.  quite
often, i will use a utility such as ImageMagic's convert to do the
downscaling and converting to other suitable formats.

but, gimp's tutorial suggests that one should do some editing tasks (
such as sharping ) after downscaling ( or upscaling ).  i want to know
why and how do you do that ?

what i expected workflow of image editing is:

1) improve contrast and color balance in gimp
2) despeckle
3) sharping
4) add frame/border
5) downscaling to various of sizes and convert to other formats using
a script-able tool.
