Different image magnification methods are related very close with each other except the simplest Box method that does not use any interpolation. All tested methods show about the same RMSE results for the same picture. Lanczos methods show the best results and simplest Box method shows the worst results. Statistically, difference between interpolation methods, is less than one percent. But, for example, Lanczos works well where intensity gradient is higher, but brings more errors when intensity changes softly. Pixels with errors surround the edges, but can cover wide areas near edges. Image noise can increase RMSE value dramatically, concurrently noise can be invisible on image and produce a little intensity ripple but have a lot of pixels and produce high RMSE value.
