PHP function - Remote Thumbnailing
I am wondering if PHP has a function that will allow you to read a file from a remote loaction (another server) and place it into the requesting servers default temp. location.

The reason I need this is that I've noticed that there are many hosts that do not support GD on their servers to be used for thumbnailing and resizing. I want to develope the code so that people without GD can have their thumbnails created remotely and have their software copy back the new files to their server.

I think that alot of people would be interested in such a service, even Links, DBMan, etc. users. Share your thoughts. Or point be in the direction of any code that may do something similar.

Cheers!
