Internet Explorer 7 uses a rather crude method to resize images by default. There's a CSS tag img { -ms-interpolation-mode: bicubic; } to get better results, but I'm unable to change the source of the page. IE8 uses the better method as the default, but this is a corporate environment that is unable to upgrade at this moment.

Is there anything in the options or a registry hack to change the default resizing mode in IE7?

Put that into a CSS file somewhere and set it as an user style.

Never did get this to work, but they finally upgraded to IE 8 so it's a moot point. Thanks for the answer. – Mark Ransom May 14 '11 at 1:58

You can put that rule in a user CSS file and perhaps you can set that via group policies.
