I’ve been using the wordpress plugin ‘Get the Image‘ by developer Justin Tadlock for a while. ‘Get the image’ does a fantastic job searching through posts looking for images, so you don’t have to add thumbnails manually, but it always bothered me that it downscaled images in the html instead of scaling and cropping them properly. I also use the lovely timThumb script on my blog, to scale, scrop and cache images on the fly, and I wanted to find a way to combine the two scripts into one.
Update: Due to spotty performance from Snapcasa I’m currently working on switching to another screenshot service. Read about it here.
Whiiiiiiiiiiiiiii! If this works there should be about 6 thumbnails on this page, showing links bookmarked using Delicious, and tagged with “art”.

(ps, right now you have to hack it if you want to see your own bookmarks, mskogly is hardcoded :) Working on that :)
I’m considering a few other thumbnailing services:
