I have a need to take an existing pic and create a thumbnail having the longest side being 150px.

Any idea how this could be achieved?

Do you need to use VB6?  There are free utilities that will do this for you. Let me know and I'll get you the name of the utility I use (not on front of my pc now)

No, I don't have to use VB6, but I have about 400,000 photos to run through the thumbnail creator, in many different directories.  I thought VB6 would be the easiest way to loop through my db and create the thumbs.

I'll get you the name of the utility as soon as I get home.  I think it even processes the file recursively.

Here is the link to the utility I use.

This seems to be a newer version as the one I have does not have the user interface.

It works very well.
