Probably, but it all depends on several factors. There are several different methods used when resizing bitmaps and not all are equal. The crudest may turn diagonal lines into jagged edges. There are several sophisticated methods such as bicubic resample, in programs such as photoshop and even special purpose programs that do nothing but resize like Genuine Fractals. When you take a picture at less than full resolution your camera has to do the resizing. The only way to know for sure is to compare photos. Take two photos of the same scene, using a tripod so they are as identical as possible, using different resolution settings. Compare the image resized in the camera to the one resized in your editor.

Memory is cheap. Even if your camera does a good job of resizing take everything at highest resolution and edit/crop/scale after.
