Allows arbitrary command execution and XSS attacks. Even if they're patched in a later version, this script was obviously written without an eye for security. Don't make the mistake of allowing it on your server, it's an unnecessary risk for a simple thumbnail script.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Have implemented this script on a number of ecommerce sites, to reduce the time customers have to spend processing product images. Everyone LOVES it.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I have been working with the PHP GD library for quite some time now and phpThumb() definetly simplifies on the fly thumbnail generation. The directions are easy to follow and it's easy to install (simply download the files). I was using it successfully in under five minutes.
After searching through several thumbnail generating scripts that I was not able to get to work, I didn't hold out too much hope when I downloaded phpThumb. To my surprise it was easy to call and functioned exactly as described. It made finishing off a project that had been dragging on loads easier.
