// Demonstrates how to scale an image using bilinear sampling
// This example relies on the function resize_view(), available in include/boost/gil/extension/numeric/resample.hpp,
// to apply the resampling.
// This example demonstrates bilinear sampling; include/boost/gil/extension/numeric/sample.hpp also offers nearest-neighbour sampling.
