Immensely fast JPEG thumbnailer
Epeg is insanely fast at loading large JPEG images and scaling them down to tiny thumbnails. It's speedup will be proportional to the size difference between the source image and the output thumbnail size as a count of their pixels. It makes use of libjpeg features of being able to load an image by only decoding the DCT coefficients needed to reconstruct an image of the size desired. This gives a massive speedup. If you do not try and access the pixels in a format other than YUV (or GRAY8 if the source is grascale) then it also avoids colorspace conversions as well.
