Image manipulation with Perl

Hello,

I've written a script in perl-cgi to automatically display images from a folder on to a web page.

I now have two questions:

1. Is there a good way (preferably using perl), of turning images into thumbnails? I don't mean just changing their dimensions but actually shrinking the filesizes along with the images.

2. I wanted a button to rotate the images in case they're portrait. Is there a relatively simple way of doing this or shall i hit cpan?

cheers,

cjm

Hi cjmos,

I would definitely recommend using imagemagick to do it.  It has a perl API that's easy to use for even novices to the program, which includes me.  I made a couple simple schematic visualization perl scripts with it, although the strength with the program is actually manipulating images, which is what you want.  URL is http://www.imagemagick.org/ (perlmagick is at http://www.imagemagick.org/www/perl.html)

Cheers!
