I have read warnings that this (imagecreatefromstring.php) is killer SLOW simply
because it is server side. Have you found this to be true?
Would you suggest just making the thumbnail when the file is uploaded, or do you think
it is wiser just to make a thumbnail when the user requests it, and just make them
wait for the server side code to crunch?
Thanks again group!!!
