Thumbalizr is a simple site offering a simple service. You enter in a URL and it produces a thumbnail. You can also choose what size thumbnail you’d like it to create. Thumbnail is a little misleading because it’s really creating a screenshot of just the website. It’s actually a great tool to “quickly” create a screenshot of a website without doing a print screen, pasting it into Paint or Photoshop, cropping out everything outside of the browser window, exporting the image and uploading it to a server. It comes in very handy for bloggers on the go that might only have access to a web browser.
The only downside is that like most screen capture websites, it’s pretty slow. I’m sure most people can take the long road in the same amount of time thumbalizr takes to create a thumbnail.
