ASP thumbnail creator?

I need a simple function to generate and save a thumbnail from a picture. It
would require :

Source Picture Fileame
Thumbnail Height and Width
Thumbnail Filename

There are many pay programs available but they do far more than I require
and I want the code to be built in to my code, not operate as a separate
program. Any ideas? The browser knows how to resize pictures easily enough,
and that is free! Is there no way to capture this with ASP? Thanks!

CxImage.dll
you can find it on
http://www.codeproject.com/asp/thumbtools2.asp

It is very usefull, and I am currently setting up a web photoalbum,
generating thumbs and lowres images 'on the fly' with it.
You can see it at
http://pvo.no-ip.org:4040/milan/foto...AlbumsList.asp

All the original pics are stored in folders.
These folders are indexed with THumbsPlus: thumbgeneration and added
information is stored in central dbase.

This dbase is providing information for my webpages.

However, when starting a 'slideshow', an 'low resolution' picture is
generated from the original one on the fly with image size 80% of screen
size.
This is done by use of CxImage

succes with it, and thanx to Philipos Sakellaropoulos' for sharing this tool
with us!

regards,
bartp

Look into ASP.NET... it makes thumbnail generation easy.

Perhaps - but considering that my whole site is .ASP on a linux server that
doesn't support ASP.NET, that isn't very helpfull!

thanx for the compliment.
I am just developping a 'general' site:
-guestbook
-photoalbum
-daily log
-newsletter
-..

all fully customizable and with ASP and dbase.

It is just an experiment, but nice that you liked it.

bartp
