Hi huang,

CrazyBeaver has a free thing to do this that I used in the past, I think its called ImageSizer or ImageResizer, let me find it
Yes, ImageResizer: http://www.crazybeavers.se/products_imagerresizer.asp

I ended up changing to ImageMagick (http://www.imagemagick.org/script/index.php) which you could probably use from an asp page with java (though I changed to a php page now).

Either one of those should do what you need though

Also, though I'm assuming you want the thumbnail sized pic to save on load time, you can always 'resize' them using the img width/height/etc like
     response.write ("<img src=""" & f.Name & """ width=800><BR>")

I really think you werent referring to that, but I thought I'd throw it out there.
As for renaming the picture randomly, a script should be easy enough to write. If you'd like it in vbscript I can write one up quick for you (please provide an idea for what you want the names to be, unless you truly mean random); for javascript someone else would have to do that for you.
For mine, I used the image resizer and just added _small and _thumb to the filenames to distinguish between sizes
