I read that the better methodology when down sampling for noise reduction is to first blur the photo and then to resize
I haven't seen any guidelines though on the actual work flow like which blur algorithm and parameters and then which resizing algo
I know there isn't a one answer for everything method but very interested in what you have found out.
maybe something like for photos with a lot of fine details like leaves and grass first use this blur with these parameters then this resize. or guidelines for what to look for.
anyone wants to share? ?
