Q. I'm using the GD functions to create thumbnail images. Why am I getting
such crummy results?
A. imagecopyresized() does not do a very good job scaling down images. Use
imagecopyresampled() instead. If you are already using imagecopyresampled(),
the problem might be that the destination image has limited color range.
Create it with imagecreatetruecolor() instead of imagecreate().
