Thumbnails in Delphi

I want to provide a thumbnail view of graphic files in a directory (similar to thumbnail view in explorer)   I have tried the jedi component that does this with little luck.   Are there any top quality components for this?   Are there any ways to "embed" the explorer view directly in my app so I'm not reinventing the wheel?

You can do this just by using a listview component.
On population of the listview, check the file type and associate the correct icon.

If you do a search for thumbnails in the delphi section, about 5 people have tried to do this recently.
Should be plenty of answers that will be able to solve your issue

good luck

I made this Thumnail program:


It allows you to select a source directory where your original pictures are and creates a HTML page with thumbnails. When you click the thumnail it opens a new window with the original file.
