Create a Thumbnail right on your windows desktop with RightThumb.This is a free software that can be used to easily create a thumbnail, from a wide range of graphic image formats.
The purpose of a thumbnail image on a web page is to reduce the size of the image and hence the bandwidth and the download time.However, a few web designers produce thumbnails by simply reducing the dimensions of a large image using HTML coding, rather than using a smaller copy of the image.But this doesn’t help in reducing the bandwidth or the download time, as the resize happens after the full image is downloaded.Moreover, the visual quality of browser resizing is usually less than ideal.Hence it is always preferable to make a thumbnail as a smaller copy of the original image, using a tool like RightThumb and use the generated thumbnail on web pages.
