Hi John,

If your camera has a twain driver it should be fine. I've tested the library with a Kodak DC215 with and without the twain driver's user interface.

For thumbnails, you'll need to do a bit of work with the TResizeTransform, but it is quite simple. Here is a code snippet to generate thumbnails:

SmallJpg : TJpegGraphic;
BigJpg : TJpegGraphic;
ResizeTransform : TResizeTranform;

SmallJpg := TJpegGraphic.Create;
BigJpg := TJpegGraphic.Create;
ResizeTranform := TResizeTransform.Create;

for each jpeg file { replace with your loop }

ResizeTransform.Width := 80;
ResizeTransform.Height := 80;
ResizeTransform.ApplyOnDest( BigJpg, SmallJpg );
SmallJpg.SaveToFile( ... );


You may also want to use the Interpolated property of the TResizeTransform for better quality thumbnails.

Best regards,
