Thumbnail images in a jiffy

May 23, 2007

Thumbnails can’t be easier nowadays. In the past, we used to have to download the image, resize the image manually (using Photoshop or some other imaging tool) and reupload the image somewhere.

No longer.

Quick Thumbnail quickly resizes any locally stored image based on percentage, fixed sizes, or by standard sizes for known images (thumbnails, icons, web banner, you get the drift). All you have to do is browse four your image file locally (.gif, .jpg, .jpeg, or .png files are currently only supported) and it resizes the image based on your preferences and uploads them to a remote server. At that point you can link directly to the image or download it for your convenience.

I found this to be a lot quicker than doing the old manual way. However, there are times when you want a real crisp thumbnail (for website creation, etc) but for quick on-the-fly thumbs, this web tool does the work and does it well.
