    Sized Pictures

    How does flickr get all those same sized square thumbnails?

    Is it through CSS or through an image module?

    Either way, are there any write-ups out there that tell of how to achieve this?

    Thanks, Matt

    Likely using something like the package found at the above link to handle images.
    They likely create the thumbnails when the pictures are uploaded and then recall them as per the requests. That way the processing only needs to done once.

    If they did it with CSS, which is handled by the user's browser, there would be a substantial increase in their bandwidth, at an expense.
