It's not about sniffing the wire, it's the fact that any random person could come along type in the (albeit difficult to guess) file name, and view the file.

Or someone that has access to some albums but not others could attempt to view photos they were not authorized to.

The overhead in pulling these thumbnails, once generated is minimal. The code checks if a thumbnail exists, and if so, spits it out to the browser.

Thumbnail generation will of course have some overhead, but is a one time thing for photos.

Testing here shows that generated images load nearly instantaneously(even with no browser cache).
