Thumbnail is widely spreading and used by many graphic designers and photographers for a small image representation of a larger image.Because thumbnail can make the images more easier and faster to look at or manage a group of larger images. For example, you want to upload the photos of your trip via Internet to share them with your friends,you will open the folder of the photos.But there are only the basic information about each picture and you don’t remember the name of the ones you want to upload.So showing them as the thumbnail is a very good choice.A thumbnail is also used to mean a small and approximate version of an image or a brochure layout as a preliminary design step.
