Hi there

How can I resize an image inside a form?

Suppose I would like to do something like this:

function ImageForm()
	$Employee = Employee::currentUser();
	$Image = $Employee->Picture();
	$form = new Form($this, "Form", 
                      new FieldSet(
		            new LiteralField(''myLiteralField", $Image->paddedResize(200,200)
		      new FieldSet(
		            new FormAction ($action = "myAction", $title = "Save")
                      new RequiredFields());
        //I know there is actually no formfields in this form, this is just an example...
	return $form;

Thanks, Joel
