Interpolation for prints

I'm aware of a number of different ways of increasing the size of an image for printing:

PSCS: Print with preview-dragging the image to fill a large print paper
PCSC: Adjust image size with bicubic (and other) interpolation methods
PSCS-GF: Using genuine fractals to increase the image
Qimage: Mike Chaney's package uses another method of interpolation
Fred Miranda Plug-in for PSCS

So....any recommendations? Are they all about the same, as I suspect?

I've read (from Yves, I think) that then reducing them back reduces noise.

Help before I spend more money on this addictive hobby!

Thanks, Rich

I have always used Qimage for u[rezzing my prints

Once you get the hang of how it works, it's an excellent tool, and imo, the very best printing SW out there. For downsizing for web etc, I use FM's Web Presenter Pro. I always follow Ron R's Ebook recomendations of downsizing in either (multiples of)10, or 25, or 33% amts. For instance, I'll tell it to give me, say, 40% of original, then check it's size in PS, and undo/redo as necessary.
