What produces best thumbnails programmaticly

Good evening,

Windows 2000, JDK 1.5.

What opinions do people have on what way and tool programmaticly produces
the best quality thumbnails from larger images?

On the web I've seen Java Advanced Imaging (JAI), ImageMagick, and GIMP all
praised as best in different places.

Is there another tool or other better solution?

Can anybody point to a superior JAI implementation, if that's considered
best?

Many thanks,
Ron

PhotoShop!

In part, that is why it costs a lot!

It's algorithms are highly tweaked!

I don't have PhotoShop now, and I don't think I can afford it for just one
application. Just out of curiousity, can PhotoShop be called from Java?

What would be second best?

Sure, you can call it. You can exec the PhotoShop.exe from Java. Not
sure if PhotoShop can be called with a parameter list of what to be
display.

Second best, IMHO, is GIMP and that is free.

Good evening,

I have found an implementation of Java Advanced Imaging (JAI) that produces
what I think are, at least, quite good results.

It's intermingled with intelectual property so I can't share the code. Here
is a link though if you want to see what is possible with JAI. I'm not shy
about giving it because the site generates no revenue (by design) :)
