Tutorial: Cute Thumbnail Galleries!

  1. Ok, so this wasn't on my summer to-do list until I watched this and now it has shot straight to the top! How easy and how CUTE when it's all done!

    And don't you just LOVE screen shot? I think it's my fav tool! When I got my PC, I was bummed it wasn't standard like my Mac, but the new Windows has the Snipping Tool, which is almost as cool πŸ™‚

    Thanks for another amazing tutorial!

    Lessons Learned

  11. Rikki says:

    You're amazing!! I have been following your blog for sometime and seriously you have helped me out so much. I created my first teachers pay teachers product. I felt like I did everything right. You helped me create it. Seriously I wouldn't have been able to do it without your help. Now I have one more question for you. I don't know if you'll be able to answer it. I put my product up on Teachers Pay Teachers. But it will not show any thumbnails. How do I get it show thumbnails. Do you know?? I've saved the images as jpegs, and tiff. I've even resized it but when I put the document in it shows nothing :(. Can you help me?

  12. I agree with Rikki! Amazing:) I will be giving this a try for sure:)

  13. Adding this to my To D list! I'm a huge fan and new follower!


  14. Awesome! Thank you, I'm going to try this when school gets out . . .

  15. I played around with this and used Fireworks. However, the crop tool in link manager caused my thumbnails to have a light white background. I noticed yours didn't do that…. how did you do that?? Thanks for the info. … very helpful!

    Thanks SO much for this video! I have been wanting to add thumbnail galleries for a while now after seeing yours and some other cute ones and this explained it perfectly!
