GD Modules:

You need to have the GD module installed in your server to use this script.
To find out if GD is available . . . .

@1 Thumbnailizer (PHP version):
Create a file called "info.php" with only these codes:

<?PHP phpinfo() ?>

Upload info.php to your website and point to it from the browser. If GD is present, you should see something like this.

Due to patent issues, GIF is only supported if your GD version is older than 1.6. However, JPG is only supported in version 1.6 or newer. PNG is also supported.

@1 Thumbnailizer (Perl version):
Method 1:
Download perldiver. Install it to your cgi-bin and execute to see if GD is present.

Method 2:
Run the following command under SSH:
perl -e "use GD;"
There should be no messages if the GD.pm module is correctly installed. Otherwise, you will get "Can't locate GD.pm in . . . . . . . ."


  • Come in Perl or PHP version.
  • GD module (see details above)
  • No MySQL needed.
  • No SSI needed.
