Sorry to jump in here and I haven't read every post in this thread but I have a question.
What would be the best image tool to use out there for accomplishing this?
I have seen some of these image sites that when you go click on the image you get pictures of girls that are kind of leaning to nudity.

Yea, I know, a lot or most of them are bad that way, with the advertising.
"imgur" is the most popular one on this forum. I use my own servers to store my images.
As for "tools", my favourite and what I use is ImageMagick, the 'convert' command for resizing. Others prefer Gimp, or any of the many other graphics tools available for Debian.

Yes, some of the image hosting sites are questionable at best. My radar goes up whenever I see anything offered as "free." Having said that, another poster here put me on to Postimage. When a user uploads to Postimage nine choices are presented including Thumbnail for forums.
