I've been trained to use Bicubic Sharper when reducing an image in size. What I don't like is that is seems to over-sharpen my images, especially when I am going to a web resolution of around 500x333. I have been sticking with Bicubic (the default setting), and doing the standard, last step sharpening via a filter. I do a lot of beauty and fashion retouching, and on those images, the last step sharpening that I do on the image is masked only into certain areas; I avoid sharpening skin textures that I worked hard on taming down, and it makes no sense to sharpen out of focus backgrounds. On those images, I would think if I reduced the image size at some point and used Bicubic Sharper, it would bring edge detail into the whole image and into unwanted areas. Thoughts and experiences?
