I released a new Thumblist version which can use ImageMagick, if properly
instructed. It can hopefully handle much bigger pictures than PHP-GD can (and
should work even if GD is not installed). It works very successfully, much
faster seems to me, and with much less server load at galleries.accent-bg.com
where it is now enabled for all galleries.
Note that under "PHP Safe mode" you may be unable to use convert, read this
page for tips. Note that this configuration is intended for very advanced
administrators. On most shared/cheap hostings it will not work.
