Roz View: Easy Thumbnails – for On-The-Fly Easy Thumbnail Creation

While the reason why I found Easy Thumbnails from Fookes Software was not a happy one, using it is making my life a joy and turning over 1400 of my cloudy thumbnails crisp, clear and sparking.

IMPORTANT NOTE — Did I say it was COMPLETELY FREE!  NO nags, NO advertisements, NOTHING but an excellent little program jammed packed with an enormous amount of thumbnail creation features and much, much more.  It comes with its own viewer so it is the ONLY program needed for the job, UNLESS you need to make changes or enhancements to the images themselves.

NEGATIVE — It does not accommodate PSD (Photoshop native format)

In my case the images were already in JPG format and I needed to create thumbnails with a certain naming format.  Easy Thumbnails provided features to do this all in “one-step?”

The software is great for the novice as well as the seasoned professional and does not have much of a learning curve. All the features are named with self-explanatory names, however, you might want to either make some tests for yourself or have a quick look at the PDF manual that can be downloaded at the link below.  I looked at a set of instructions and the manual AFTER the fact!
