Hi,

I have several different thumbnail sizes being used around my site and I want to simplify the process by using the enlargement and re-scaling it.

Trouble is; with IMageMagick, I am unsure whether to use Resize or Thumbnail.

Both snippets are below. which is best and why. I did read the docs but didn't see anything to explain

http://www.imagemagick.org/script/perl-magick.php

Code:
#!/usr/local/bin/perl
  use Image::Magick;

  my($image, $x);

  $image = Image::Magick->new;
  $x = $image->Read('bedroom.jpg');
  warn "$x" if "$x";

  $x = $image->Resize(geometry=>'150x100');
  warn "$x" if "$x";

  $x = $image->Write('bedroom.jpg');
  warn "$x" if "$x";

  #!/usr/local/bin/perl
  use Image::Magick;

  my($image, $x);

  $image = Image::Magick->new;
  $x = $image->Read('bedroom.jpg');
  warn "$x" if "$x";

  $x = $image->Thumbnail(geometry=>'150x100');
  warn "$x" if "$x";

  $x = $image->Write('bedroom.jpg');
  warn "$x" if "$x";
point to note: I am making a thumbnail where the proportions of the image remain the same eg 16:9
