Thanks for all the suggestions.  I'm debugging it now and making sure i 
destroy everything.  I'd send you the code but it's huge.  Basically, 
I'm taking each photo and downsizing 4 ways per. Yes, 4.

I'll check out shalbum as well - sounds great.  But for this, there are 
associated DB calls and tons of other things I have to do.  Thanks again!
