The utility of the Windows thumbnail generator can be seen in many places. It appears in the Windows Explorer, where it appears as a tool bar under the File menu. Another instance of the tool bar can be found in the Control Panel window, at the very bottom of the window. In both instances, you are able to create thumbnails that will be responsible for saving and sharing the picture to several different locations online. The creation of the thumbnail will then place that image into a digital image format that can be used to share the image to multiple sites.
With the Windows program, you are also able to share the image online through several ways. You can create the thumbnail online using one of the methods provided by the tool bar, and then save and share the image. You can also share the image through email or direct message. If you would rather not use Windows, there is also the option of using Mp3 Player to create the thumbnail. Mp3 players allow the user to specify the format in which to save the image, as well as the dimensions in pixels, in order to use thumbnails to share the image.
