Certainly the CMS tools I use let me upload the highest quality I can,
then use ImageMagick to produce a thumbnail for the pick list, and
optionally let you pre-scale/compress/convert the source to the size/format

Try 'convert' from the ImageMagick package.

Not if you want to make the informed quality decision.

'convert' has a "quality value" option to set how much compression to
