Website thumbnails and snapshots

AshleyAshley

I thought I’d share this great little site for displaying website thumbnails for free and unbranded! http://snapcasa.com/

Move over Websnapr, Snapcasa’s coming through!

Websnapr has somewhat dominated the market over the years with their thumbnail generation service as they boast having served over 1 billion thumbnails. However for non payed customers you have to put up with the Websnapr branding on every thumbnail served, and the basic service  only allows you 100,000 credits. SnapCasa served 42 Million free snapshots prior to releasing their version 2 site. The new site release saw a premium option added to the site allowing you to purchase more credits for your monthly usage including on demand updating of thumbnail refreshes.

The Premium  service offers the following

The basic and premium service also allows for a number of thumbnail sizes as shown below.

Snapcasa looks to be a great alternative to Websnapr from all angles.
