a need simple a program to resize images while keeping the aspect ratio

Kpaint does a really crappy job at resizing, the resized jpegs look very crappy like if they are missing some pixels.

imagmagick package probably does what you need. It's command line based, but that shouldn't matter. Try this:

convert -geometery [new size] sourcefile destfile

convert -geometery 1024x768 /home/usr/temp.jpg /home/usr/temp2.jpg
man convert / imagemagick for more options... there is a ton.
