If you think my rudimentary explanation sounds like Greek, wait till you check out the book!!! LOL
The edition I have is a 345 page book "JUST"color> on Sharpening Techniques for Adobe Photoshop, Camera Raw and Lightroom.
As to resizing, I believe you are using PS Elements correct? When you resize the default algorithm is Bicubic which is a good all purpose algorithm for digital imaging. If you click on the arrow to the right of Bicubic, you will get a drop down menu of choices. Again this goes to preferences in workflow, but I find Bicubic Sharper does a good job of down-sampling with a minimal need for further re-sharpening afterward. On the other hand some people use Bicubic Smoother for both up or down-sampling.
It will take some time and experimentation on your part to decide what works best for you.
