Right, there is no RES= keyword, so the RES=8 keyword sequence on your
command line is ignored.

Right again.

Right.  If you are not changing the projection, you have to be remapping into
an existing image.

Basically, you want to change the magnification.  For this, you can use
the IMGCOPY command specifying MAG= keyword values.

Use IMGCOPY.  To see the resolution of the resultant image, specify
the FORM=EXP keyword sequence on the IMGLIST command.
