    Converting Images to Thumbnails

    I want a user of my application to be able to select a .JPG for inclusion in a Catalogue. When they select the .JPG, it will be moved into the appropriate Catalogue directory structure under a folder called Images. At the same time, I would like a fixed size thumbnail, of the same Image, to be placed in a Thumbnails folder.

    I have no problem with creating etc the folders/files.

    My question is:

    Is there an easy/cool way for me to generate a Thumbnail from an Image? For the purpose of simplicity, assume all of the images are square.

    If it matters, the images will be > 1000x1000 and the Thumbnails will be < 100x100.

    I should add...

    I realise that I could just display the original image in a smaller PictureBox and do away with the Thumbnails... however... There will be lots of images read from a CD (slow), so I prefer to read the small Thumbnail JPG's and cache them, only showing the original large image when absolutely necessary.
