Resize image as per the availability - Asp.net 2008

Dear Experts,

I have one web application which includes Album Gallery.  Whenever i do upload the image in this gallery, if the image is of high resolution, it seems like squeezed. Means it do not fit into the image thumbnail.  I have checked the same thing on orkut, when i upload the high resolution image and when it shows thumbnail preview of it, it fits into that thumbnail very easily and when we enlarge the image by clicking on it, the large picture is displayed.  How to achieve this using asp,net with C#

Please help.

Thanks

The dimensions of the thumbnail must be in proportion to the original image. You need to calculate the final length and width of the thumbnail based on the size of the original. In your code, first determine if the image is taller than it is wide or wider than it is tall. Decide in advance what the maximum size of the longest side of the thumbnail will be. Below is code for this calculation.


'longest side of finished thumbnail will be 100 pixels
'set both width and height of the thumbnail to the maximum dimension
'then calculate the other dimension
Integer thumbWidth = 100;
Integer thumbHeight = 100;
if (origWidth > origHeight) {           'original image is wider than it is tall
     thumbHeight = origHeight * 100 / origWidth    
} else {                                'original image is taller than it is wide
     thumbWidth = origWidth * 100 / origHeight                                     
}
