Resizing Causes Blurry Images
Hello all, fairly new to Gimp and have a question about resizing images. I have a jpg file 1500x1024 pixels. If I resize it down to 400x300 and save it, the image quality is fine in the Gimp window. When I view it outside of Gimp, like in Image Viewer or FSpot its very blurry.

I resized the same image on a Mac using Photoshop and this did not happen, the resized image was perfect. Is there some setting that might cause this that anyone can think of? Is it some sort of limitation in Gimp?

In the Scale Image dialog box the interpolation is set to Cubic.
In the Save As jpeg dialog box I have checked Optimize
Smoothing is set to 1.00
Subsamplingis set to Best Quality

Thank you for any help with this, cheers.
