How the image is processed can be defined in the Settings tab where slider controls allow you to rotate images, adjust their contrast, brightness, sharpness and quality, and the results can be checked with a convenient built-in previewer.

Another nifty feature about Easy Thumbnail is that you can convert one or more images inside Windows Explorer from the File menu or from Context pop-up menu with a right-click of the mouse on the file name. Make sure you have checked the option Add "Make Thumbnail" shortcut to Internet Explorer in the last step of Easy Thumbnail Setup Wizard.

If you would like to publish the images onto a web page, Easy Thumbnail can make the web page for you. What you need to do is select all image filenames inside Easy Thumbnail and right click to select Make Web page. The completed web page will be automatically saved in the folder where the original image(s) is.

The layout of the completed web page is based on a HTML template that can be easily customized to create your own layout. The HTML template is located in Easy Thumbnail's installation directory, normally at C:\Program Files\Easy Thumbnails\Template.html. Consult the Easy Thumbnail help file topic "Useful Tokens and System Variables" for details about how to modify the HTML template.

More tips about using Easy Thumbnail

  • Easy Thumbnails can check the Internet twice a month for product updates and announcements No information about you or your computer will be revealed during this operation. You can enable this feature if you like.

  • Thumbnails can be created in any existing folder or a new folder, and you can identify them clearly by adding a prefix or suffix to their titles.

  • If you process a Jpeg file that contains EXIF data, the resized image will contain a copy of the data as long as it exceeds 300 pixels in height or width. The EXIF data is automatically discarded when you produce smaller pictures so that file size can be reduced further.

  • Use the "Copy Image Tag" command from the shortcut menu of the Original/Preview image, to copy the img HTML tag of the current picture to the Clipboard.

  • Leave the "Save in" field blank if you want to save the thumbnails in the same folder as your images. Easy Thumbnails automatically creates a folder if it does not already exist. You can specify relative path names.

  • Can process all images contained in subfolders through the command-line.

  • If your original image is a Jpeg file, you can produce a lossless (no degradation of image quality) ? 90/180 rotation by choosing the Lossless setting in the Algorithm field. Note that there might be a slight reduction in size of the resulting image if its dimensions do not match the DCT (Discrete Cosine Transform) block unit.
