Gallery image question

I'm having a few problems with the gallery module, specifically image manipulations on my homepage.

I can happily create a thumbnail of a GalleryPage's $DefaultIcon by including $DefaultIcon.PaddedImage(200, 200) in the template.

But I want to change the background colour of the PaddedResize so included this function in the HomePage_Controller :

public function generateLatestResize($gd) {
      return $gd->PaddedResize(600,400, $backgroundColor = "000000");   

Now my issue is that $DefaultIcon.LatestResize doesn't return an image. Can anyone help me figure out what I'm doing wrong?
I've tried including the function in other classes that extend Image or GalleryPage_Image but no joy.
