Perl Tk: How to display a picture in different sizes ?

Hello,

in order to have an attractive Gui I am working a lot with pictures.
Is there a way to enable the Gui to display pictures in different
degrees of magnification (like many applications allow viewing
documents e.g. at 150% of the original size) ?

My aim is to let the user see the same thing regardless which size
the application window has ( sounds a bit ambitious ).

I heard about the magic capabilities of ImageMagic but as far as
I know is it necessary to have a c-compiler which I don´t have
and would have problems using.

Many thanks,
petece

I don't know Perl/Tk, but I have used ImageMagick.  Don't give up on it yet, you don't need a compiler -- there are precompiled binaries available (see http://www.imagemagick.org/script/binary-releases.php).
