Memo from Martin P Burns of PricewaterhouseCoopers

-------------------- Start of message text --------------------

Hi Ron

You can programatically discover the size of images using
the ImageMagick library, accessible from most programming

I've got it running on my site:
as a folder where I can just drop images, and there's a Perl
script which calls ImageMagick and builds the image list.

Sadly I'm away from my home machine which has the (rather string
and sellotape) script on it. I did post it to thechat some time back
but can't find the reference rn.

Subject:  [thelist] Automatically Size User-Loaded Images

I will be creating an application that will allow users to upload pictures
to a website through an administrative interface.  Any suggestions on how I
should control the size of these images?  Server-side vs client-side?
Maybe someone could point me to some other places that already do this...
