Thumbnail me 3.0
Create thumbnail images for your movies

Thumbnail me is an open source tool which creates thumbnails of any selected video, then saves them to a single image. It's very useful as a simple way to summarise the content of a video, without having to load (or download) and view the file yourself.

The program imports most common video types: AVI, MP4, MPG, VOB, MOV, MKV, TS/ M2TS, FLV, 3GP, OGG, SWF and more.

You're able to choose the section of video you'd like to be thumbnailed; the number, size and layout of your thumbnails (a single row or column, a grid of your preferred size); and whether you'd like the page to include technical details of the video (file size, duration, bitrate etc).

Once you've set everything up correctly (or if you're happy with the default settings), producing the finished image is just a matter of clicking "Start". Thumbnail me then grabs evenly spaced frames from your video and compiles them into the final image, which can be saved as a JPG, PNG, BMP or TIFF file.

Perhaps best of all, Thumbnail me can also upload your thumbnail page to imageShack. You can use your own imageShack account to do this, but the program also supports anonymous upload, quickly getting your image online and providing the links you need to immediately share it with others.

Verdict:

An odd interface layout means Thumbnail me isn't quite as easy to use as it should be. You'll still figure out everything you need to know within a couple of minutes, though, and its speed, configuration options and imageShack uploader make the program a great thumbnailing choice.

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
