Image Manipulation Component

Does anyone use or know of any good image manipulation components (freeware would be pleasant).

My minimum requirements are to be able to open a JPEG, query its dimensions and save a smaller version of it (thumbnail).

As a bonus freebie it would be great if I could do this from ASP.

Does anyone know the component used in CityDesk for cropping etc? This is nice. (what a leading question)

For ASP, I'm not sure.  I know .NET supports all of it, and should work in ASPX

WIAAut can do all of the above. It is available for free from Microsoft. See http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/wiaaut/wia/wiax/overviews/startpagewiaaut.asp for more details.

ImageMagick?

Free?

You'll want to write a .Net component made visible as a asp component.

The only alternative is either background daemon that runs ImageMagick (perl-based daemon for example) or ImageMagic/GD with a com wrapper.

I'm using gd for this, but I work in C, so that probably doesn't help you.  I do have a small CGI program that handles both uploading and resizing, which is designed to be integrated into other applications.
