When offering a list of files for downloading over the WWW, it's often convenient to graphically illustrate the contents of the file by displaying a thumbnail (a small GIF image) adjacent to the file name. For example, thumbnails are often minatures of larger graphics files; or, they can also be the desktop icon associated with a non-graphics file.
ThumbIndex program is designed to create, and deliver, these thumbnails. It's main advantage is ease of use; you can easily create indices containing thumbnails that point to their underlying image.

ThumbIndex (which is written in REXX) can be run fom an OS/2 command prompt, or as an SRE-http addon.
WWWThumb: an alternative to ThumbIndex
WWWThumb (updated Error in Server Side Include ) is an SRE-http addon that allows you to create thumbnails on the fly, or to store them for future use. It has a few extra features that ThumbIndex does not have, but it is somewhat more difficult to use.
