help with "autothumbnail" maker

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had any luck using the "autothumbmaker" program located in the AVSIM file library? autothumbnail2.zipI have tried to install this on a VISTA 64 system and the install runs to completion, MSFSX asks upon startup whether I want to run the program, and then also asks if I want to add this to the trusted programs. But I find no entry in the top of screen menu and hence can not accomplish the creation of thumbnails. Any help would be appreciated.Kingfish

I did not know of this file/program but have made lots of "thumbnail" images.......Just take a screengrab - change the screengrab file-name to "thumbnail" and place it in the relevant texture folder.I usually edit the image file to a size of around 350 x 150 pixels and save it is "thumbnail.bmp"

Yup. Open FSX. Select your plane. Hit "Prt Scr". Open Paint( yes ,the lowly Paint. I've even done repaints with it). Hit "Ctrl+V". Crop to just your plane. Save as "thumbnail". Copy and paste to the plane"s texture folder.Bob

I use TWEAKFS - FSX AIRCRAFT TOOLBOX for making any thumbnails plus it has alot of other handy functions for managing your FSX aircraft.

I use it on XP SP2 with FSX SP1 & 2, Kingfish: works flawlessly. I'm at work at the moment, but I think the entry in the menu bar appears under the FSUIPC bar.
