What is a thumbnail?
Thumbnail is a small graphic file which is used on HTML pages as decreased image of a graphic file or a video frame. Most of all user clicks on this image to view a video or to open the image in full size.
Creating thumbnails for graphic files is a very simple task. There is a lot of software for graphic files editing. Many applications allow user to create thumbnails for groups of files and this makes the work much quicker. VideoCharge Studio provides the same ability.
When it is necessary to process a video file, there is a number of reasons why this task becomes more complex:
1. The number of applications which can create thumbnails for video files is by an order lower. The number of applications which process groups of files is much less.
2. It is necessary to select a frame for thumbnail: which frame should be used for creating a thumbnail? By default, the application uses the first frame, but what if a user needs the 10th frame? What if users want to select the frames by themselves?
3. It is necessary to create groups of thumbnails (5 or more) for some video files.
4. The last, it is common to create thumbnails consisted of several video frames for video on the torrent sites, adding meta descriptions.
All the described reasons are not a hurdle for the VideoCharge Studio application, one of the best in the represented field. This application has a very wide range of tools for creating thumbnails both for video and graphic files. There is a possibility to automate Thumbnails creating process: it is possible to create several thumbnails at once, process folders with files, work via the command line, find the best frame, and create video at the same time.

Thumbnails are reduced-size versions of pictures, used to help in recognizing and organizing them, serving the same role for images as a normal text index does for words. ..

A small graphic, usually included as an inline image link to a larger external image. Thumbnails should be kept small so they load quickly. The user can then follow the links to the larger images, if they wish, and not be slowed down while waiting for the fullsize images to be loaded all at once.

According to my point of view there is also some web designers produce thumbnails of HTML code that makes the user’s browser shrinks the image, instead of using a reduced copy of the image. The more thing is that the visual quality of browser the size is usually less than ideal.

Exactly all the answers are meaningful… Even I should say that the thumbnails are the short description of our all kind of files…. This one is also a perfect answer….

A thumbnail originally refers to a quick sketch done, jotting down an idea on paper graphically - not something we do much anymore!  - Franciso Bacon
