I'm not quite sure what you mean, but if you just want to create thumbnails
from the images in a directory, 'convert' from the ImageMagick package will
do this nicely, with eg:
for i in *.jpg; do
        convert -resize 320x200 $i $(basename $i .jpg)_thumb.jpg

If you need the konqueror class specifically, your best bet is to look at
dcop. Take a look at the user guide (development version) at
