Uses AntiAliasing (scale-to-gray) when scaling Black and White Images and uses Interpolation when scaling 16, 24 or 32 bit Images

Interpolation only works with 16, 24, and 32-bit color images. You may want to use IncreaseTo to increase images with 256 colors the appropriate bitdepth. Then after scaling the images they could be dithered back down. Although much more time consuming the results should be well worth it. Interpolation is only used by default when scaling the image down. To force the control to use interpolation for scaling images up you will need to use the ScaleImage method.
