      spline64 isn't an anti-aliasing interpolator hence it's not optimal
      for downsizing. You can specify different interpolators on the DOSUP
      command line, but it seems to be limited to the "old" panotools

      If you have a more recent panotools version (pano12 version 2.7.10 or
      newer) you can use the anti-alaising interpolators: open
      pano2faces.bat in notepad (or similar text editor) and locate the
      lines (numbers 369 and 370 in the current version)

      SET interpolate=i4
      SET interp=spline64

      Change them to

      SET interpolate=i19
      SET interp=Mitchell

      for a neutral or

      SET interpolate=i21
      SET interp=Lanczos3

      for a sharpening anti-aliasing interpolator. The i-numbers correspond
      to the ID in http://wiki.panotools.org/Anti-aliasing_interpolators
