* Glorious graphics manipulation magi... errr, SCIENCE! in less than 200 LoC!

* Pretty much any graphics format you could want. No really.

== SYNOPSYS:

  ImageScience.with_image(file) do |img|
    img.cropped_thumbnail(100) do |thumb|
      thumb.save "#{file}_cropped.png"
    end

    img.thumbnail(100) do |thumb|
      thumb.save "#{file}_thumb.png"
    end
  end
