In this paper, we investigate the notion that there may be alternate methods, beyond typical rectilinear interpolations such as Bilinear Interpolation, that have a greater suitability for use in visual/image preprocessors for Artificial Neural Networks. We present a novel method for down-sampling image data in preparation for a Feed-Forward Perceptron system assisted by a neural usefulness metric, inspired by those common to pruning algorithms. This new method achieves greater accuracy compared to the same system using by Bilinear Interpolation, and has a reduced computational time.
