    Default Software to create Thumbnails

    I'm looking for an application that can create thumbnails easily.
    Ideally with the ability to define a setting for thumbs, then with a function such as right click > create thumb
    I'm using kde but have other machines running gnome and would be prepared to transfer files for the process.

    Thanks

    Install nautilus actions which would allow you to run arbitrary commands
    Then using imagemagick
    Code:
    mogrify -resize 50% rose.jpg
    or
    Code:
    $ mogrify -resize 256x256 *.jpg
    you can even set things up so that thumbnail menu appears only for png etc
    This is how i use nautilus actions"Image Conversion using right Click Menu"

    Doesn't that overwrite the existing files?

    Nice blog

    Digikam has a batch process, which works nicely. I may come slightly unstuck if I have differing image sizes but want thumbs say: 200x150

    yes we have to append a new name. but in my example i have change picture formats,hence it was fine

    also use something like this
    Code:
      mogrify -path thumbnail-directory -thumbnail 100x100 *

    From what little i know we can give any setting(size) but we should retain source image resolution like (4:3 or 16:9) otherwise the thumbnail may not look like the original image

    We also need to write to a different folder lest our original gets modified

    You also have a package called "The Nautilus-Image-Converter extension allows you to resize/rotate images from Nautilus."

    example usage with original and resized images side by side


    you don't need nautilus actions for doing this
