    If you're making them larger, nothing. There's only so much information in a small picture and resizing them doesn't add any. There may be a better algorithm that gives better results. And if you want the best results resize by a simple arithmetic factor, like 2:1 or 1:2. Resizing by 1.4142136:1 will make it difficult for the extrapolation or interpolation algorithm to work. And always start out with the largest and best quality, and a png or bitmap.

    I'm assuming you're resizing the large one down to the smaller one, right? That smaller image looks like it was resized with a poor algorithm. In Photoshop if you resize with Bicubic Automatic you'll get a much nicer image.

    If you're using photoshop to make images small, just hold the shift button while making them smaller. Then you don't lose quality.

    I use a free program call IfranView

    Just right click and open your picture which you want to resize with the program.

    Press Control + R and just select the Height and Width you want and save it.
