Smartphone Webworks Image Preview

Hi All,


I've just started working with Webworks (I'm a web developer and fancied having a play). I'm building a gallery application as a test project for smartphones and am having trouble with previewing images on the user's memory card. They are taking far too long to load (due to the size of the pictures). If I was able to use my standard PHP approach I'd be ok but I'm stuck with Javascript - any suggestions as to how I could grab only a preview of the image and display it rather than the full sized one to reduce loading time - caching is not an option as the time to load is still ridiculous for the first run.


Many Thanks - Trev
