Memory for image processing

I am still new at choosing appropriate processors. I am looking at a 32bit processor that can do the function below:


 This processing function is to receive a JPG image of around 100KB from one ethernet port, shrink the image to 5KB and send it quicky out the other ethernet port as quickly as possible.

As this is MJPEG handling, it is a process of receiving, processing and outputing lots of these images as quickly as possible.

To achieve this function, I assume I would require some form of external memory (non permanent but fast).

My question is:

What advice is availble in the choice, size and type of memory to use?

If there are other solutions, I would be interested to understand
