people are correct -- resizing does take time for the processor, but
such an insignificant amount that it isn't of any concern -- it can also
affect quality, but again insignificantly in most cases
the only advantage of giving them the whole 50K file when they could be
using a much smaller file sized thumbnail is that it is then essentially
preloaded ... but if you are doing that for five images and they aren't
necessarily going to look at all of them ... you are wasting bandwidth
which means time for them and expense for you or your isp and that
eventually drives the cost up. Wasted bandwidth is a bad thing -- even
if the rest of the world doesn't understand that.

I use <http://www.faststone.org/FSViewerDetail.htm>FastStone Image Viewer
to generate thumbnails and resize my pics.
I have found it to be more robust and flexible than most thumbnail generators.
And, it does, much, much more - all for the low, low price of freeware.
