I don't believe it's really resampling, which is a specific operation...I
just think it takes data and derives at the dither pattern without any

I have had this discussion before...and using lines to test this isn't
really a valid test IMO.  Yes it shows "something", but what it shows is
only valid for lines, not for real photographic images.

Oh, good man!

BTDT (been there, done that)...yes, I'll keep it in mind the next time I
print perfect squares ;-)
