Question regarding the resizing?

How does the image resizer exactly work? Does it download the image from the original source to the server, create a smaller version, save that on the server where the phpBB is and link to the original image through the lightbox or does it simply resize the original image and use it as thumbnail?

Nope, none of that. The original image is not downloaded or physically modified in any way. It is resized client side (in the browser) through JavaScript.
