Erm, what? 100 what? I have no idea what you're talking about. Posting a link to your gallery might be a good start.

I think I finally understand: you want to set max thumbnail dimension to 200 and then you complain that the existing thumbnails don't look good after changing that config option. That is to be expected, that's why there is a little asterisk (**) next to the thumbnail dimension config option (named "Max dimension of a thumbnail"). If you hover over those asterisks or take a look a few lines below (or even take a look into the docs that come with coppermine), this is being explained:
Quote
When changing this setting, only the files that are added from that point on are affected, so it is advisable that this setting must not be changed if there are already files in the gallery. You can, however, apply the changes to the existing files with the "admin tools (resize pictures)" utility from the admin menu.
This being said, here's what you do: change "Max dimension of a thumbnail" to 200 (or whatever value you see fit), then go to coppermine's admin tools, select "Update thumbs and/or resized photos", tick "Only thumbnails", scroll to the bottom and choose "all albums". Finally submit the form and wait a little.
If this is not what you're after, then clarify which thumbnails you mean: thumbnails representing individual files or thumbnails representing albums.

If you choose a resolution for the album thumbnail that is higher than the resolution for the thumbnail that represents the actual file, the album thumbnail will get blurry, since the file thumbnail is being used and just resized (stretched) in your browser. It's advisable to use the same dimensions for both file and album thumbs or use a smaller resolution for album thumbs that for file thumbs, not vice versa.

http://www.clubbersguide.com.au/photos/index.php?cat=2&page=1 show album thumbnails
http://www.clubbersguide.com.au/photos/displayimage.php?album=15&pos=3 doesn't exist, which is not surprising, as http://www.clubbersguide.com.au/photos/thumbnails.php?album=15 doesn't exist neither.
