[SDL] SDL_gfx.dll

Speaking of SDL_gfx and in particular, the rotozoom functions....
I was playing with zooming(actually, de-zooming, scaling down) a picture(a 
circular button), with the smoothing effect on,and it looked a lot worse 
than I expected when it was reduced from about 200x200 pixels to about 
20x20pixels. (I reduced the same image file to those proportions in a 
seperate grahpics editing program using anti-aliasing, and the results were 
much better) When scaling images up, the SMOOTHING_ON effect was good. But 
it seemed to make no difference when scaling down, as though the zoom 
function only actually used it if scaling a surface into a larger one...
When I resized it in my graphics program(this time turning anti-aliasing 
off, to stretch/truncate method) , sure enough, it looked just the same as 
the image scaled down by rotozoom. What can I do to implement the 
anti-aliasing in rotozoom when I want an image scaled down? Anyone?

Or alternatively, can someone point me to some good code for doing the same 
thing? (I only need scaling, not rotation...) Thanks,

Ok, thank you very much everyone, and especially Brian.  It worked
like a charm :)
