Hi all
I am evaluating alfresco for use as a document repository and I must say I like what I see.

I am trying to get away from the file server "rubbish bin" method of storing documents but do not want to go with sharepoint/knowledgeTree etc.. as my specific needs are the storage of images. (repository management more so than content management)

The check in/out and versioning meets 70% of my needs out of the box but my users are in a very hetrogenous environment (linux, solaris, mac, wintel etc..etc..) and everybody has an opinion on what to use as a repository (I'll never get mac users to even understand cvs :(  and if I can rip out samba and a windows fileserver that would be great).

To cut a long story sort as I am storing images what would I need to do to get "thumbnail" viewing ability of images?
a) write the java myself
b) beg for this feature

I have done web app (struts) development (but not JSF) before but does anybody have guidence on how I should start this work?

Does anybody else need thumbnail ability ?
