Editors' Note: The product also includes ClickPic.
If you have a lot of digital photos to share online, you need a program like ThumbNailer. The program is as quick and easy to install as it is to run. The interface is compact, with no useless buttons. You locate your original images, set the destination folder for thumbnail images, and indicate the dimensions you want for the thumbnails. Then the program transforms the images in a flash. The buttons that look like pages actually let you perform operations on single files rather than whole folders; the one at the top transforms the image, while the bottom one previews the thumbnail image.
The program can convert among formats, rename thumbnails, and resize images by fixing the width and height or by changing the pixel area. The Thumbnail with Basic HTML feature generates fully functional Web pages with thumbnails that link to and from the original images. This version also installs a nifty right-click context menu item called ClickPic that quickly previews and resizes images. The nag screen is bothersome, as is the watermark, but the trial version gives you ample opportunity to evaluate the program. If you need to thumbnail multiple pictures, we recommend trying ThumbNailer.
ThumbNailer is a Windows utility that allows you to create thumbnail images and image galleries. You can use it to convert one graphics format to another, change image color depth, resize images, and make HTML thumbnail galleries for the Web or CD.
