in reply to Ideas for resizing Images..

One thing you could do is try to get a more recent version of GD, which handles PNG and JPEG. I realize that recent versions do not support GIF, but that's okay, because you can just convert all of your GIF images to PNG. :)

If that doesn't really appeal to you, you could use the NETPBM tools to convert and resize, etc. merlyn has a column on using NETPBM tools to create thumbnails, which may be what you need. If the NETPBM tools aren't already installed on your machine, you can get them from ftp://ftp.x.org/contrib/utilities/netpbm-1mar1994.p1.tar.gz (per the link in merlyn's article).

[choroba]: yeah, sounds like one of the strings is not flagged as UTF-8
[choroba]: which usually means its input wasn't handled correctly
[Corion]: choroba: Yeah, I think that would be the good solution
[LanX]: I suspect the first string which comes from the DB ...
[LanX]: ... but this part is already in production for a year now
[Corion]: LanX: The "good" approach here would be to use the appropriate DBI parameters to make the driver decode strings properly. But that will have a ripple-on effect of messing up all the places where manual decoding happens ;)
[LanX]: which means albeit being broken UTF8 it'll be handled correctly
[LanX]: and the problem only occurs since we changed the emails to base64
[LanX]: my main problem will be to cnvince my colleagues that our productive code is broken oO ... so in the end I will just make a workaround :-/
LanX hates UTF8 for causing knots in his brain and stomach
