Note: The examples in this post are outdated. Please refer to current documentation in the Documentation Area for the latest instructions.

We have begun supporting custom-sized website thumbnail requests.

So, to request a custom-sized website thumbnail, you omit the stwsize= portion of the link and instead put stwxmax=xx -where xx is the width of the resulting thumbnail. You can request sizes between 50 pixels wide and 1024 pixels wide.

Note: Do NOT put these variables after the &stwurl= portion of your request or else the captured page will NOT be correct!

The stwxmax value is the maximum width.

The thumbnail will always remain proportionate to the original visible portion. The default size is 200x150.

We currently do not limit the size of the request. So, you could request a thumbnail of up to 1024x768. However, our policy is to purge any requested thumbnails over 320x240 once per day -in an effort to avoid wasted space on our hard drives. Wink

Update: The above note on purging is no longer valid. We store custom sized thumbnails for 15 days, and the timer "resets" if the thumbnail is requested again.
