I use Imager and Image::Thumbnail for basic resizing and most image handling. I guess that GD fell by the wayside as it never supported JPG.

    Since when did it never support JPEG?

      Weird - it seems that it "always" supported JPEG. I was always under the impression that GD only supported GIF, GIF+PNG, PNG and then GIF+PNG again, when the GIF patent expired (disregarding fringe formats such as XBM). From browsing through the versions of Makefile.PL, it seems that JPEG support came (unnoticed) in 1.26 , which is the first to check for -ljpeg.

      So I must have formed my image of GD in 2000, which is about when I started with Perl, and never updated my assumptions...
