Thanks for this link JohnFredC !
It's very usefull especialy for landscapes !
Free even for big images Troken :
Liquid rescale is avalable into GIMP (a wonderfull Open Source)(even under Windows: Win32), with an additional plug-in (liquid rescale).

Under Window98: (set only a TTF font before install Gimp)
Go to Start\Settings\Control Panel\Display properties\Apperance tab(\Advanced if you're on Windows XP/2003), and set all fonts to Tahoma (or any other TrueType font).

under win2000, Xp:
latest version...
--> http://www.gimp.org/features/
--> http://www.gimp.org/downloads/

Under win98:
GIMP for Windows (version 2.2.17) & GTK+ 2 Runtime Environment (version 2.6.10-20050823, for Windows 98/ME and NT4)
--> http://gimp-win.sourceforge.net/old.html
(plus Glib win32 : glib-2.12.9.zip, works for me under win98)

Liquid Rescale GIMP plugin v0.3.0:
--> download
--> instructions
Then the plugin is under the Layer (calque) menu next time you restart GIMP.


Others GIMP's +- amazing Plun-ins:
