Making URLs look memorable

A thumbnail of WebThumb, the recursion is scary

Bluga.net WebThumb provides a white-label web service API for generating web thumbnails and full size snapshots of websites.

WebThumb offers more features and quicker response times then any other service.

Once you register you get access to the API and 100 free credits per month. Thumbnails cost one credit each with some features costing an additional credit. If you need more credits than that, you can purchase them at a rate as low as $1.00 per 1000. These credits never expire and are used after your free 100. Feel free to contact us for more information.
