Many of us use our photos or any edited photos as profile photo for many networking sites. What if we could be able to use our website thumbnail for such photos. We can create our own website thumbnail by using any of the following methods.
- Load your website into browser and capture its image by pressing PrtSc (Print Screen).
- Open any image editing tools like Adobe Photoshop or MS Digital Image Suite and paste from clipboard the above captured image.
- Shrink to the size you want and use the same anywhere.
Automated thumbnail creation:
There are few websites which can offer you such a service for free. Here are few such services.
Alexa – it captures thumbnails of all monitored websites homepage.
