i've put in this thres before and didnt get much hlp.
i wanna enable users of the site to upload a picture into a file (like in hi5 or yahoo messenger) and have it displayed as a thumbnail which would have a link to the original sized picture.

I use the similar on my store2go site. You can do it in two ways:
1. Upload image and instantly create a thumbnail. See code:

// if jpg use 
$src_img=ImageCreateFromJpeg($uploadedfile);
// else if gif use
$src_img=ImageCreateFromGif($uploadedfile);
// and for png use
$src_img=ImageCreateFromPng($uploadedfile);

// create the scaled instance for thumbnail in GIF
$dst_img=imagecreatetruecolor($thumb_width,$thumb_height);
ImageCopyResampled($dst_img,$src_img,0,0,0,0,$thumb_width,$thumb_height,$mywidth,$myheight);
// write the damned thing to disk 
ImageGif($dst_img,"uploaddir/thumbnail.gif");

2. Upload image and resize to the acceptable resolution (say 800x600 max). When displaying the thumb and link, simply resize the resized image using code below:

$size = GetImageSize($image);
$width = round($size[0]);
$height = round($size[1]);
$percentage = 1;
// set target thumbnail size
$targetw = 100;
$targeth = 75;

// reduce image to target dimensions
if ($width > $height) { 
  if ($width > $targetw)  $percentage = ($targetw / $width); 
} 
else { 
  if ($height > $targeth) $percentage = ($targeth / $height); 
} 
$width = round($width * $percentage); 
$height = round($height * $percentage); 
 echo '<a href="'.$image.'"><img src="'.$image.'" border="0" alt="" width="'.$width.'" height="'.$height.'"></a>';
