[Plugin: Simple Post Thumbnails] Timthumb performance issue - important. (2 posts)

    When I use this function:
    p75GetThumbnail(int $postID, [int $width, [int $height, [string $fileType]]])
    It outputs an URL to the timthumb.php which then converts image on the server side to the right dimension.
    The problem is, when I have 15 posts on one page with p75GetThumbnail it makes my server CPU overload :( This only happens with p75GetThumbnail function.

    The p75GetOriginalImage(int $postID) function works without any performance issues, because it outputs just the image URL, without calling timthumb.php.

    Could you somehow fix the plugin, so It can upload the cropped and scaled image straight to the server /thumbnails/ folder? So it can output the scaled image without calling timthumb.php when a visitor enters the site each time.

    Please consider this. I have 1000 visitors a day on my blog, and I cannot use the p75GetThumbnail function, because timthumb causes CPU overload :( (Meaning I cannot scale images to the right dimension)

    Any help greatly appreciated,

    Try Simple Post Thumbnails plugin, it makes own thumbnails.
