I've found many scripts out there that will upload an image, then create a thumbnail. I understand how they work, but I've been unable to get any of them to run properly on my server. I host my website with 1&1 (you may cringe, but its cheap, and has worked just fine until this problem).

After a frustrating exchange of emails with their tech support, I have deduced that there is not enough memory on the server to resize a photo of a decent size (some pics 100k or less work ok)

"Upgrade to the Developer Package and it will work..." they say. But I was hoping there was another way...

I have installed Gallery2 on the server, and it has no problem resizing images of any size. This is what confuses me...

Does anyone have any ideas? A way of controlling how the memory is used on the server?
