Using the Thumbnail API is as easy eating a pile of banana pancake. Send your file to this URL and get a thumbnail image in return:
By default, this will return a PNG thumbnail image of 200px x 200px. However, you can specify width and height as well:
https://www.thumbnailapi.com/api/v1/thumbnail/400x300 for example, will return a PNG, which is 400px wide and 300px high.
The Thumbnail API uses API keys to allow access to the API. You can obtain your API key at the dashboard.
All clients must send this token in the
Authorization header when making requests:
Authorization: Token <your-api-key>
The price of Thumbnail API depends on the processing time of your conversions. Each successful conversion decreases your monthly quota by the time it took to convert your file into the target format. However, a conversion can reduce your quota by a maximum of 20 seconds.
All authorized API responses will return your current monthly quota of avaliable processing time in seconds via HTTP header:
