I have a directory with constantly changing images being uploaded.

I need a page that dynamically presents image files within the directory on a page in thumbnail format.

Are the thumbnails uploaded as well? If so and they are in a separate directory, then you can use the FSO to loop through and display them. If you need to create the thumbnails as well, then you will need to install a component to do this for you. Some items are available here:

If you can use ASP.Net, then take a look at:

I may be wrong, but I don't believe that there is a pure code solution available with ASP classic apart from streaming the image full size and then reducing the display in the browser (can be very slow with many images or images that are large).
