I have a web in development. I need to upload some images and to resize them in a form. I am able to upload some imags thanks to paperclip, but I have problems resizing this images. I am becaming mad trying to make work ImageMagik and Rmagick and I think it will became a lot worse once I find a host a put the web in production. So I wonder if its another way to resize images. I have used other option in a PHP web. It uses a mix of flash and PHP. The flash gives a tool to resize the image exactly like the user wants, and the PHP makes the reak work. I will appreciate any help.

This is simple trumpet blowing but there is a gem I wrote called thumbnailer (as in 'gem install thumbnailer') that resizes images into boxes with out without transparency, it can also scale images down to a maximum width or height. The project is here http://rubyforge.org/projects/thumbnailer/ and the docs can be seen here http://thumbnailer.rubyforge.org/doc/index.html At some point I intend to announce that I have written it but there is so much to be worked on. Requires gd2 and exifr.
