Re: filmscanners: RE: filmscanners: Re: Hello, thanks, and more.

Well, my Canadian dictionary states the first definition as:

"destroy much of, kill a large part of"

The second and third definitions both refer to one-tenth (destroy 
one-tenth, or execute one of every ten men).

Pretty violent term for describing removal of some pixels, if you ask 
me...  I too use downsample and upsample, and I think they both are 
easier to understand.
