Improved resize techniques

I always hated doing by hand things that can be automated. One of such things is preparing photos for web - resizing, sharpening etc. Stock Fotobilder can resize photos, but they sometimes greatly loss in quality (especially details) due to standard ImageMagick (bilinear?) resize. On of the well-knowing techniques is a resizing photo step-by-step, sharpening it on every step. It produces result almost equivalent to simple resize + sharpen, but small details are more sharp.

So, I replaced simple resize to such advanced resize on my fotobilder setup.
