At the moment I have a fairly simple gallery system on my site. I generate thumbnails in the gallery by simply setting the width property on my databound images and it shows them in a datalist and keeps the proportion (brilliant!).
However, this only rescales the size and can casue slower loading. Rather than having to upload a separate thumbnail is there anything I can do to speed up the loading of images?

Yep. Let the server do the work :)
Here's a component that will resize the images server-side... it will handle all the resizing work for you.. just add ?thumbnail=jpg&maxwidth=60 (or whatever) to your image paths...

Hi Nathanael, thanks for posting that, looks good.
Thought I might just ask you a couple of questions about it if you don't mind?
I mainly work on shared hosting environments for deployment, do you think this would pose any issues?
Could I use this to modify images being uploaded to lower the resolution of files? (I work in VB so not sure how much control I have.)
Can I use this on multiple/commercial projects when purchased?
Sorry if some of this is covered on your site, I only had a chance to skim through.
