A thumbnail image is the smaller version of an image. When we click a thumbnail image, the full or larger size of the image is displayed. Nowadays, thumbnail images are very commonly used in social media applications and websites.
A thumbnail is characterized by borders which surround it, either to give it a circular, rectangular, or square shape.
The steps written below describe how we can create a thumbnail image:
<a>tag and structure it like how it’s shown below. The
target="_blank"attribute and value tells the web browser to open the full size image in a new browser window.
<a target="_blank" href="image_path"> <img src="image_path" alt=""> </a>
href value of the
image_path is the relative or absolute path to our image. This serves as the link to display the image being called up in the
src attribute value.
We will style our thumbnail image to the little size we want it to be. We can also style the thumbnail to have a circular shape or any other shape we want and to have a nice border around it.
Now, our simple thumbnail image is ready.
Let’s look at the demo code below, which follows the steps listed above.
