One very useful option, when upscaling small images with gimp, is the analysis option (pixels/in). (image->scale image. The second option, just under the dimensions).

Giving a 600x600 pixels/in, is a must I think, for not blurring the upscaled small images.

Does the nautilus extension, has this feature?
If it has, it's a complete replacement for this (scaling) gimp feature.

@Elf Wizard
I dont think the feature is there on nautilus image converter. It actually uses image magic for image scaling and rotation.

Is there a nautilus extension that can actually convert an image from one format to another? (eg. from .jpg to .png)
