Web Development Blog:
Dynamic thumbnails from websites
February 15, 2007 @ 10:43:00

The Web Development Blog has a quick new tutorial on using the Girafa.com web service to create a thumbnail of your website.

Since Alexa stopped offering their free thumbnail service last year a lot of thumbnail services are available now. Some of them offering limited free services and others only a paid premium version. On of the bigger and better services is Girafa, a thumbnail service with a free service and also premium services for users with more then 2000 image requests a month.

He includes the simple code needed to make the request (inside of a thumbnail() function) and shows an example of how to fetch and store the resulting image.
