Need help fixing (or finding) PHP-based thumbnail image generating script

I'm having a really hard time getting the attached PHP-based thumbnail image generating script to work on my windows-based shared hosting account.  

The errors that I'm getting when I try to apply the createthumb() function -- using 100% valid image resources --- are as follows:

Notice: Undefined offset: 1 in D:\Inetpub\antiqueplace\webauction\upload\thumbnail_generator.php on line 92

Notice: Undefined variable: tmparr
Notice: Undefined variable: src_img
Warning: imagesx(): supplied argument is not a valid Image resource
Warning: imagesy(): supplied argument is not a valid Image resource
Notice: Undefined variable: src_img
Warning: imagecopyresampled(): supplied argument is not a valid Image resource
Warning: imagedestroy(): supplied argument is not a valid Image resource

(etc..)

It's confusing because I've gotten this script to work without any problems several times already (on the same shared hosting environment) .. yet for some reason I can't get the script to work properly in this case. Why is this script failing? How can I fix it?

If anyone knows of a better way for me to create thumbnail images using PHP ... I'd be open to replacing what I've got with it.  

Thanks,
- Yvan

This is the code I use for "index.php" in photo directories.  It makes thumbnails if they do not already exist.  Please look it over and post back here if you have any questions.

Is there any possibility of getting something a bit simpler -- perhaps something that handles the thumbnail creation for a single JPEG image?

Ray PaseurCommented:
Yes.  Please read the code posted here.  That is EXACTLY what the function create_right_size_image does.

The calling sequence for that function is on lines 38 and 39.

HTH, ~Ray
        $imageblob = create_right_size_image($jpg);
        imagejpeg($imageblob, $thumb);
