Very nice for cropping, but what about resizing? Or better yet, resizing the cropped image.

Neat. I think it is better an image cropper than an image resizer.

If a script is chosen, it will be added from this thread. Users cannot add scripts themselves; it is the job of ddadmin to choose which scripts are used.

Since PHP is involved, I think that this might be more of an online utility like the favicon generator or image optimizer if ddadmin decides to pick it up.

It is a very nice tool but, the resizing could be more intuitive.

That's the cropping. That's intuitive. I meant the resizing of the thumbnail after it is cropped. That could be more intuitive, unless I missed something.

Once the image is generated how could you resize it to make it bigger? That would only leave whitespace in an image editor. Resizing may be unpractical, because only a portion of the image is converted.

My favorite method is bilinear resampling. Some folks go for pixel mapping. What you are talking about is adding canvas. I'm talking about actually making a bigger or smaller version of the same image - resizing.

you can resize thumbnail by editing fields Thumbnail Width and Thumbnail Height

Right. But, just as you can crop the original either by editing the fields or using the mouse, I would like to see a mouse initiated method of resizing the thumbnail.

See the "Resize Instead of Drag?" section on this page:

Just a thought really, the routines might not be easily adapted. In any case, that's what I meant by 'the resizing could be more intuitive'.

I would add that the code you developed for this is pretty impressive already.
