Robot to grab web page thumbnails
September 23, 2006 4:43 PM   Subscribe

Let's say I have a nice big list of URLs, and I want to capture thumbnail images of the page at each one. Can you recommend software to do this? Commercial product, open source, programming module, anything.

Excuse the self-link, but I literally blogged about several different ways to do this 2 minutes ago, including the aforementioned webthumb.

If you're on windows, ThumbPage is quick and easy. It renders using the IE engine, not Firefox.

A friend of mine works for Girafa who do exactly what you ask for as a commercial service.
