You can find this site very useful:

http://www.viscomsoft.com/mithumbnail.htm

Just follow install procedures:

You can find the following in this site.
1. Install DirectX updates
When you have downloaded and un-zipped the provided zip file,
2. Run Setup.exe bundled in the provided zip file this will install the Thumbnail active x control
3. Then you can open the sample vb project ine the Examples\vb folder

This Active x control works very find for me in VB 6.0 and Win98 SE environment. You ca try using in in VB 5.0 or in other O.S. and lets see if you encountered problems.

If you're unfamiliar using third party active x control such as this control. Get back to me and I will give you some guidelines.

Hope this helps

Use an image control and set the strech attribute to true.
You can make it any size you want.
