if or if not to use image libraries, and why;


no if you don't have them and don't want them, yes if you want an excuse to get one or already have one.

which libraries, if any, are best;


Depends on your actual usage, especially the last questions.

which do you have, or which do you want an excuse to use?

whether or not use WPF Imaging;


do you know WPF imaging or do you want an excuse to learn it?

obviously the answer is many things. Almost all of the questions could be any answer. How far have you started? have you looked at all? what languages? what requirements?

You could easily have asked, "I would like to store data, what is the best database? what should I use to access it?" In many questions like this there are many, many answers, and people are often stumped to know exactly where to start in answering you.

So what are your other requirements? deadline? speed? resolution limits/requirements? Do you need to index your own photos or a photo library by tonal sorting? have you already done this? what is your language of preference? what have you started with? what is your goal?

A design does not end by saying, "I want to write a program" jot down a list of what it needs to do, these are your requirements. Make sure to included limits, hopes, etc. You want to fence it in as much as possible. If it has to be done in an hour, you don't want a language or library that takes too long, and you probably want to pre-index your photos. If you have a tonal based photo library you are already a step ahead, if you don't you will have to qualify the thumbnails based on overall tonal quality of each image. etc.
