    I have a bunch of web site templates saved as html files (index.htm) that I want to make thumbnails out of. How can I go about doing this?

    Thanks
    Vic

    I think the simplest way is to open in in a browser, and then take a screen shot of the current window (Alt + Print Screen button), and then cropping it to size and shape in your favourite image editing program.

    IMHO, A typical good size for thumbnails is 160 pixels wide. That way your image thumbnails are easily recognizable. A quick way would be to write a script that takes screen captures and outputs cropped/resized images. That is a big time waster to write though. So, I recommend sticking to the traditional means of getting thumbnails.

    There are also programs that take screenshots automaticly and save them. You can crop the area on the screen you want to capture. Try looking on Google for "screen capture"
