I have a small open source project called aspAlumni at http://sourceforge.net/projects/aspalumni/

The photo option currently requires a user to post a photo elsewhere and then put the link into their profile on the main site for display.

the number one request is for an image upload directly to the server hosting hte app... How can I do this?

Here are my preferences:

-The photos would be uploaded to a data directory outside of the webroot
-Since this will be incorporated in open source package, I really can't buy a pre-made asp component
-The upload component would resize the photos as necessary

Thanks

for an open source upload component in pure ASP see:

As for resizing images: I don't think that that is going to be easy. Reducing the size of images means loss of data, and to make the quality recuction minimal, you probably need to do some very smart programming.

Smart programming is certainly not me... I am Mr. Spaghetti Code. I am looking into each of these options and will be back. Thanks to all.
