Image Resizing

I have a need for the capability to re-size images. I have no need to
do anything other than re-size images. Having searched the posts in
this group, it seems that the conventional solution is to use
ImageMagick/MiniMagick. That seems like a lot of horsepower and
resources to accomplish this simple task. So, before I start down
this path, I'd just like to inquire as to whether anyone has any other
approaches that I should consider. Thanks for any input.
