    In July 2018 i came here and stated to stay away from Thumbshots. I remember getting some pushback , like it was my fault i was unable to get cooperation from them.

    I cannot find the post because the search on TAZ stops at August 15th

    But anyway TOLD YOU SO!!!

    Dear Customer

    We regret to announce to you today that Thumbshots will be shutting down on Nov 10 2018

    Thumbshots was launched during the internet boom in the late 90s to take advantage of the image preview technology to help our end-users to better navigate the internet. While we survived the dotcom bust and the last Great Recession by managing our business prudently, our journey must now come to an end.

    We will no longer be accepting new paid and free customer effective immediately

    Sincerely

    Thumbshots

    I use Screenshot Machine now very good and you get 100 free per month, thereafter you buy packs so no long term contracts or commitments.

    Thumbnails? Maybe for use on a web site.
    Their description leaves a little (well, a lot) to be desired in the quoted portion of text, but that presumes that you were not a user of theirs. If you were a user, then you would be familiar with the service(s) that they provide and it might make sense.

    Always try to limit third party services that your forum/website requires. More so if they are free since they could disappear at any time
