First off, What iPage web host is the best for a small business (price, look, space, etc..)? Thanks for any comment. Another question on my mind: I built a site.

Http://framesoutdoor.com.

And they are updating their cart with the images at 800X600. The thumnails are actually larger in in file size then the original pictures that were uploaded..

Is their a way to make them smaller or add compression. For example front page images that have been thumnailed are smaller in file size. Currently the page takes 308 seconds to load..

Any advice would be greatly apprieciated..

Thanks,.

I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the answer to that question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I bump into an good answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could give you help..

Never mind my friend!! It helps if I am not so stupid as to load version 1.0 when version 1.1 is available. You wrote a very nice addition to the cart my friend..

In product_thumb.php, you can change that to imagecreate. If you get other function underfined errors, it's because your compliation of GD doesn't support this or that (certain image types, etc).....

My Cpanel uses GD 1 and does not support GD 2. I cannot unload my control panel and if it's installed I would lose the ability to use it so thats not an option..

Is their any way to get this to work this way..

Thanks,.

Guess Not, I will find another work around but your code sounded great..

Guess not what?.

If it's GD 1.6/1.8 it can be made to work with the suggested change above, though you may not have support for certain image types.....

If your PHP has the GD library installed, you can use this simple mod to make thumbnails on the fly, with much smaller file sizes....

Retains the proper ratio for your thumbnails too!.

(ignore the posts there that say caching).....
