This application will grab a screen capture of the home page of a website, resize it and store it as a small thumbnail.
I would like this to be a small standalone application built on .php or possibly .cgi.
A listing is added to my directory. At the time the listing is accepted, the thumbnail is created and stored in the database.
Additionally, the site owner can log in and click "Update my thumbnail image" to replace the existing image with an updated one.
The listing site URL, filename and database/FTP information are passed to the thumbnail application which takes the snapshot, resizes it to 133x100 and uploads the thumbnail to the appropriate folder with the filename assigned.
This open source thumbnail creator class might do the trick : [url removed, login to view]
I will need the proper query to add to my existing directory applications to make it all work correctly.
It must be automated and web-based- I am not looking for a desktop application where the data must be manually entered to create the thumbnails.
Thanks for looking- please PM me to clarify any questions you might have.
