Here is a great function:

function makeThumbnail($o_file, $t_ht = 100) {
   $image_info = getImageSize($o_file) ; // see EXIF for faster way
   switch ($image_info['mime']) {
       case 'image/gif':
           if (imagetypes() & IMG_GIF)  { // not the same as IMAGETYPE
               $o_im = imageCreateFromGIF($o_file) ;
           } else {
               $ermsg = 'GIF images are not supported<br />';
           }
           break;
       case 'image/jpeg':
           if (imagetypes() & IMG_JPG)  {
               $o_im = imageCreateFromJPEG($o_file) ;
           } else {
               $ermsg = 'JPEG images are not supported<br />';
           }
           break;
       case 'image/png':
           if (imagetypes() & IMG_PNG)  {
               $o_im = imageCreateFromPNG($o_file) ;
           } else {
               $ermsg = 'PNG images are not supported<br />';
           }
           break;
       case 'image/wbmp':
           if (imagetypes() & IMG_WBMP)  {
               $o_im = imageCreateFromWBMP($o_file) ;
           } else {
               $ermsg = 'WBMP images are not supported<br />';
           }
           break;
       default:
           $ermsg = $image_info['mime'].' images are not supported<br />';
           break;
   }
   
   if (!isset($ermsg)) {
       $o_wd = imagesx($o_im) ;
       $o_ht = imagesy($o_im) ;
       // thumbnail width = target * original width / original height
       $t_wd = round($o_wd * $t_ht / $o_ht) ;

       $t_im = imageCreateTrueColor($t_wd,$t_ht);
       
       imageCopyResampled($t_im, $o_im, 0, 0, 0, 0, $t_wd, $t_ht, $o_wd, $o_ht);
       
       imageJPEG($t_im);
       
       imageDestroy($o_im);
       imageDestroy($t_im);
   }
   return isset($ermsg)?$ermsg:NULL;
}

makeThumbnail( $filename, 50);

This returns the thumbnail.  So you need to save the result into a file and reference that file in an IMG SRC.
I have the function in it's own file and use that file as the IMG SRC - passing a global variable of the filename to convert.
The file being referenced returns a proper JPG header and echo's the return right to the browser.

Here's a function that you can point towards an image directory and it will generate thumbnails for each of the images in the directory based upon the dimensions given at the top of the function. I use it my photo galleries so I can simply ad a photo to a folder and the next time someone visits the page, it will automatically thumbnail the new image. It looks at each image in the directory and if it doesn't have a thumbnail, it creates it. If it does, it moves on. Just set up a directory to put all your pictures in and create a "thumbnails" sub-directory. Then call the function, passing in the images directory and off you go...

<?
      function generate_thumbnails($images_dir) {
            $imagemagick_path = "/sw/bin";
            $max_thumbnail_width = 150;
            $max_thumbnail_height = 150;
            $sleep_time = 1000;
            $count = 0;
            
            $thumbs_dir = $images_dir . "thumbnails";
            
            if ($thumbs_handle = opendir("$thumbs_dir/")) {
                  while (false !== ($thumb_file = readdir($thumbs_handle))) {
                        $thumbstring.=$thumb_file;
                  }
            
                  closedir($thumbs_handle);
            }
                  
            if ($handle = opendir("$images_dir")) {
                  while (false !== ($file = readdir($handle))) {
                        if (stristr($file,'jpg') && !stristr($file,'tb_')) {
                              if (!stristr($thumbstring,$file)) {
                                    //*****************image resize code starts here*****************                                   
                                    usleep($sleep_time);
                                    $size = getimagesize("$images_dir$file");
                                                                        
                                    // Wide Image
                                    if($size[0] > $size[1]) {  
                                          $thumbnail_width = $max_thumbnail_width;
                                          $thumbnail_height = (int)($thumbnail_width * $size[1] / $size[0]);                                                        
                                    }  
                                    
                                    // Tall Image
                                    else {
                                          $thumbnail_height = $max_thumbnail_height;
                                          $thumbnail_width = (int)($thumbnail_height * $size[0] / $size[1]);
                                    }
                                    
                                    exec("$imagemagick_path/convert -geometry " .
                                     "{$thumbnail_width}x{$thumbnail_height} " .
                                     "$images_dir/$file $thumbs_dir/tb_$file");
                        
                                    //*****************image resize code ends here*****************
                              }      

                              $pictures[] = $file;
                              $count++;
                        }
                  }
