17.) What is a thumbnail?

Thumbnails are small images as a preview for a larger version of the image.
Through the use of thumbnails shorter loading times are possible, because the load time of websites
depends often on the integrated images.
This can ensure that the loading times are not too large and the user is capable to decide which image
he want's to see in full size.
A simple click on the corresponding thumbnail opens the full size image.

Another reason to use thumbnails is to save space on your website.
Many images can be placed in a confined space.
The visitor can quickly obtain an overview and zoom individual images if necessary.
Thus, the limited space of a webpage can be used effectively and the appeal will be further increased.
