Thumbnail maker for GD

This a thumbnail maker. Thumbnails are smaller versions of the original image/graphic/picture and are used for preview purposes, where bigger images can take a long time to load. They are also used in image galleries to preview a lot of images at a time.

This module also has the capability to add information strips about the original image. Original image’s size in bytes and resolution & mime type can be added to the thumbnail’s upper and lower parts. This feature can be useful for web software image galleries or forums.

This is a Yet Another type of module. There are several other thumbnail modules on CPAN, but they simply don’t have the features I need, so this module is written to increase the thumbnail population on CPAN.

The module can raise an exception if something goes wrong. So, you may have to use an eval block to catch them.
