Hi,


What's the easiest way to resize an image on Dreamhost?  Which image
software?  (i.e. ideally one that is already installed on the DH
servers).

For example, which of the image tool options mentioned in this article
would
DH RoR developers recommend?  (I'm a unix novice note) -
http://clarkware.com/cgi/blosxom/2007/02/24#FileUploadFu .  Extract
below:


   -

   ImageScience <http://seattlerb.rubyforge.org/ImageScience.html>: A
   light inline-Ruby library that *only* resizes images. (Wraps the
   FreeImage library.)
   -

   RMagick <http://rmagick.rubyforge.org/>: The grand-daddy, both in
   terms of advanced image processing features and memory usage. (Wraps
the
   ImageMagick library.)
   -

   minimagick <http://rubyforge.org/projects/mini-magick/>: It's much
   easier on memory than RMagick because it runs the ImageMagick command
in a
   shell.




Thanks
