How to generate thumbnails dynamically using apache


Currently I update my website using a script that I found online to generate thumbnails for my picture gallery. But this method isnt good for several reasons:
1) I want to generate the index file for all my pictures automatically, this means I have to change the script for this
2) I dont want to store all those thumbnails in my server since I dont have that many hits
3) I wanted to be able to regenerate the index files from a base folder updating the current file, ie, automatic removing or adding new pics and new entries.

I use apache and I think that there might be an easier way to get this job done. Can anyone provide me some references/suggestions? Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure if apache alone can do this. I would guess that you can use a perl script or php script to dynamically generate thumbnails. However I don't know what your hosting allows.
