Using ASP.VBScript how do I resize a picture that I have uploaded

I am uploading pictures to a server. Sometimes people upload pictures that are too large. I want to be able to resize the pictures to width='250' and the height= a size relative to the original image size. Right now my page can upload the image and retrieve it's dimansions which it stores in two variables called myWidth and myHeight. How can I resize the image? Thanks for any help. I have attached my code below if anyone needs to see it.

Here is the page to see what it does now:

<%@LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT" CODEPAGE="1252"%>
<!--#include file="Connections/dsnvessels.asp" -->
<!--#include file="Upload.asp" -->
<%
'Upload the image file and get reference to component
Dim Uploader, File
Set Uploader = GetASPUploader
 
'Use AddFile method to add file objects and change their properties as needed
Set File = Uploader.AddFile("file") 
 
'The the properties of the upload
File.ValidFileTypes = "pdf,jpg,gif,bmp,png"
File.MaxSize = 10240*1024
File.Overwrite = false 'Do not overwrite, create unique filename 
 
'Set the folder name to where the file will be uploaded to
Uploader.Destination = "Images" 
 
'Set longer timeout for large files if needed
Server.ScriptTimeout = 900
 
'Enable error handling to catch and handle errors during upload. For example, if user
'  cancels the upload or attempts to upload files of invalid (unallowed) type or size,
'  ASPUploader will raise an exception (error) with relevant description
On Error Resume Next
 
'Start receiving and saving file(s):
Uploader.Upload
 
'Check for errors:
If Err Then
  'Redirect with error message
  Response.Write err.description
  Response.End()
End If
 
 
'Add the details of the uploaded file to the database
Dim myFile, myDescrition, title, price, myWidth, myHeight, resolvedPath
resolvedPath = Server.MapPath(Uploader.Destination & "/" & File.name)
myFile="images/" & File.Name
myDescription=Uploader.Form("description")
title=Uploader.Form("title")
price=Uploader.Form("price")
Call sImageProperties(resolvedPath) 
 
myFile = Replace(myFile, "'", "''")
myDescription = Replace(myDescription, "'", "''")
title = Replace(title, "'", "''")
price = Replace(price, "'", "''")
 
response.write(myFile)
response.write(myDescription)
response.write(title)
response.write(price)
response.write("<br />")
response.write("resolvedpath=")
response.write(resolvedPath)
response.write("<br />")
response.write("width=")
response.write(myWidth)
response.write("<br />")
response.write("height=")
response.write(myHeight)
response.write("<br />")
response.write(Uploader.Destination)
 
 
 
 
 
set cadddetail = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
cadddetail.ActiveConnection = MM_dsnvessels_STRING
cadddetail.CommandText = "INSERT INTO products (ImageURL, name, description, price)  VALUES ( '" & myFile & "', '" & title & "', '" & myDescription & "', '" & price & "') "
cadddetail.CommandType = 1
cadddetail.CommandTimeout = 0
cadddetail.Prepared = true
cadddetail.Execute()
 
 
 
'Finally, void the object
 
 
Set Uploader=Nothing 
 
Sub sImageProperties(vImage)
  Dim image, fs
  Set fs=CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
  If Not fs.fileExists(vImage) Then Exit Sub
  Set image = loadpicture(vImage)
  myWidth = Round(image.width / 26.4583)
  myHeight = Round(image.height / 26.4583)
  Set image = Nothing
  Set fs=Nothing
End Sub

@R Harrison: One problem is that if someone uploads a 10MB file, then all the users have to download that entire 10MB file for their browser to resize. If you get several of those on the same page..well then...that sucks.
I know a paid component isn't always the best solution, but I use aspJPEG. (www.persits.com). It does all kinds of image maniplulation include file-based (server-side) resize of the file down to a more manage-able size.

Slightly confused?  Normally you would just add the width tag to the <img> as below.

<img src="somepagethatgetstheimage.asp" width="250">

If you don't specify a height, the image height will be automatically adjusted to maintain the correct aspect ratio.

I am missing something?

CCongdon:
Yeah, but you can always limit the size of the upload... anyway that wasn't the problem stated.  If he wants to actually change the image to a smaller version then he will need an external component...

Yeah, that's why I think the general public shouldn't be allowed cameras greater than a couple of megapixels unless they get a certificate showing that the understand how to resize photos before e-mailing/uploading them. :)

With you on that one!  A 6 megapixal image squashed to 200 pixels, why oh why!

What you are trying to accomplish is very common.  I'm a PHP guy so I can't help you with your code, but if you google "asp image resize upload" you'll get tons of hits.  eg. there is a good tutorial for a free way of doing this here:
http://www.codeproject.com/KB/web-image/pnguploader.aspx
It requires .NET rather than classic ASP, but it looks straightforward to implement.
The particular example converts the uploads to PNG format, but you can change that to your choice.
There are also links on the page to several other related examples, and down in the comments section under "good article, but i have a better solution" someone posted another complete solution that looks pretty good.
