Why? - It works fine for 10thousands of people.
It's free and can be easily installed.
So where's the problem?

Of course you can. You will have to style, resize and/or crop your images
using Photoshop or Fireworks before uploading though.
And you won't be able to create menus from the same image sources you used
for the larger versions.

Don't know exactly. But a fact is: No IM -> no thumbnails. Even though GD
might be part of the thumbnail creation process.
