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 (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
