Sample Web Sites

Featured Demo Site uses ThumbNailer to create thumbnails of its artwork.
your site featured?
  • This is a large web site showing off various fractal images. This site was created entirely with S.A. ThumbNailer and the SAShadow plug-in. The pages in this site have not been modified in any way - what you see is exactly what was generated from the program.
  • This one was created using Photoshop and Adobe GoLive to do the initial page layout. Then the HTML from GoLive was integrated into a ThumbNailer template to create the site.
  • This one uses a style sheet to control the layout and appearance. All done with ThumbNailer. (template and CSS here)
  • This one uses some dynamic HTML to display a little info about each picture when you move the mouse over it (look near the bottom of the page). It also shows some different ways you can handle navigation links (prev/next). Again, this was all done with ThumbNailer.
  • Visit the ThumbNailer user galleries . These are sites created by ThumbNailer users.

End Of The Line

Smaller Animals Software has been in business for 23 years. And it's been fun for every one of them. But, we've reached a point where the cost of keeping the virtual doors open far exceeds what sales bring in. And so, with much regret, we will be shutting down Smaller Animals Software. The proposed final date of operation is June 30, 2016. After that date, sales and support of all Smaller Animals Software products will cease.

ImgSource users are encouraged to purchase a source subscription, to allow them to diagnose and correct any issues they may encounter in the future.

We realize this is inconvenient for our customers. And we wish there was a way we could continue to develop and support the products we've been working on for all these years. But, there doesn't seem to be a way to do that.

We would like to thank all of our customers and especially those who have stuck with us over the years and have contributed greatly with their feedback and suggestions. It seems safe to say that the majority of the features in our products came directly from user suggestions. We wouldn't have done it without you.
