    Default Dynamic creation of thumbnails WITHOUT components

    I know there are components (ASPImage) that do this, but that is not an option for me.<BR><BR>Can it be done without SS components? If so, do you care to share. Thanks, robert.kane@usaa.com

    Default RE: Dynamic creation of thumbnails WITHOUT compone

    I want to allow people to upload images to a directory on my site. I know how to do this using html form and asp. <BR><BR>However, when I display the image, I first want to display a thumbnail, rather than the actual image (for quicker downloading). The problem is how to create the thumbnail?<BR><BR>Here are my options as I see them:<BR><BR>1. Simply set the height/width properties of the img tag. This takes just as long as displaying the actual image - Sometimes referred to as "Dumbnails"<BR><BR>2. Create the thumbs by hand. I would prefer to shy away from this option.<BR><BR>3. Find a component to install server-side to automatically generate thumbnails. My web host will not allow this.<BR><BR>4. Create/find a function that would allow this to be done. An actual thumbnail file does not necessarily need to be created, per se. Ideally, I would pass the image file (along with other parameters) to a function that would compress the image to a certain size, then display that compressed version of the image.<BR><BR>Number 4 is the option I am trying to pursue, I just don&#039t know how to do it.<BR><BR><BR>Thanks in advance,<BR><BR>Rob
