Hi Cocoon Guru's,
I'm planning on using Stefano's ImageReader reader to generate 
thumbnails.  It took me only a few minutes to implement it, but then I saw 
it only supports JPG images.  Is there any possibility to support GIF 
images or other formats as well?  I found that JDK 1.4 jai implements a GIF 
Using this I could convert GIF images to JPG for the thumbnail 
presentation.  My Java knowledge is a bit small to do this myself, so hints 
are welcome.

There's another thing I could use and that's an image type reader.  It 
takes an image source and converts it to a specified image type.  This way 
the users can upload a whole scale of image types that would automagically 
be transformed to another type (JPG, GIF, PNG, ...).  How would I implement 
this in Cocoon?
Gathering knowledge from the thumbnail generator/reader I should be able to 
generate this component easily (I think).
