GD::Thumbnail ============= This a thumbnail maker. Thumbnails are smaller versions of the original image/graphic/picture and are used for preview purposes, where bigger images can take a long time to load. They are also used in image galleries to preview a lot of images at a time. This module also has the capability to add information strips about the original image. Original image's size (in bytes) and resolution & mime type can be added to the thumbnail's upper and lower parts. This feature can be useful for web software (image galleries or forums). This is a Yet Another type of module. There are several other thumbnail modules on CPAN, but they simply don't have the features I need, so this module is written to increase the thumbnail population on CPAN. Read the module's POD for documentation, examples and other information. INSTALLATION To install this module type the following: perl Makefile.PL make make test make install or under Windows: perl Makefile.PL nmake nmake test nmake install Alternatively, you can use the Build.PL perl Build.PL perl Build perl Build test perl Build install DEPENDENCIES This module requires this other module: GD Which is available on CPAN. The bundled image 'cpan.jpg' is taken from http://www.cpan.org/misc/jpg/cpan.jpg and only used for testing.
