When you resize an image smaller, you are removing pixels, so it will lose quality.  If you make it bigger, you are adding pixels, and the colors for those pixels has to be made up somehow.  This sometimes causes pixelation, but some resize algorithms are better than others.

Anyway, you can use the Image::Resize.  
use strict;
use CGI ':standard';
use Image::Resize;
my $image = Image::Resize->new('large.jpg');
my $gd = $image->resize(250, 250);
open(my $out, ">Small.jpg") or die "Couldn't open/write: $!\n";
print $out $gd->jpeg();
print header();
print "<html><body>Success!</body></html>\n";

so this doesn't use GD or any other library?

This is now in Perl? and this works in gif and png?
