It may be that resizeQuality has no impact on what you're trying to do, 
but if it does, you'll need to make sure you've got the right syntax.  
It took me a long time to figure out because it's not documented 
anywhere, and even the cryptic references to it in the archives never 
actually use the command.

First thing you need to know is that resizeQuality is image specific, 
as opposed to other image qualities such as jpegQuality and 
paintCompression (which are global).  Second thing, you need to set it 
before you do anything with the image.  Here's what I do, before I use 
the image:

     put the short name of this stack into stackName
     set the resizeQuality of image "Current Image" of stack stackName 
to "best"

Hope this helps.
