I pre-generated them but I think it could be done on the server. We do
have access to the template objects so I guess that's one way to do
it. Another possibility is using ImageMagick but I am not yet familiar
enough with that to know how to do it. However you raise a good point
Richard. My goal is to develop as many tools as possible so make
changes to my web sites as easy and automatic as possible, so this
would be a good addition to those tools.
So as not to have to do it every time, I would imagine having a
routine that checked the large size images and looked for matching
thumbnails. If any were missing, it would generate them and save them
for next time.
