Share This Post

We want to tell you about this tutorial’s cPanel image control panel option.

The Images interface allows you to modify and manage images you saved to your account. This feature includes the following tools:

  • Thumbnailer — Use this tool to create thumbnails from images in a directory and store them in a thumbnails subdirectory.
  • Scaler — Use this tool to resize individual images.
  • Converter — Use this tool to convert one image file type to another file type and change the file type of all images in a directory. For example, you can change .jpg files to .png files.

To use this option, you must follow the steps below:

For example, we want to make a thumbnail of all the large photos.
1- We enter the site control panel. (Here, you can see the article joining the control panel.)
2- Click on the image option in the File tab.

To convert a directory of images to thumbnails, perform the following steps:

  1. Locate the folder that contains the images that you wish to convert. 
  2. Note:
  3. You must select an entire folder to convert to a thumbnail. The Thumbnailer tool cannot restore individual images.
  • Click the folder icon or the folder’s name to navigate the file system.
  • Click Thumbnail to select the folder.
  1. In the Scale Percent text boxes, enter the percentage you wish to shrink your images.
  2. Select the Keep Aspect Ratio checkbox to ensure that the image’s dimensions remain proportional to prevent distortion.
  • Click Reset Dimensions to reset the Scale Percent values to the default.
  • Click Thumbnail Images.

After the Thumbnailer converts your images into thumbnails, the following message will appear:

The system successfully converted your images into thumbnail images and stored them in the following location: /home/user/.cpanel/thumbnails/tn_*

Click the thumbnail path to open the directory in cPanel’s File Manager interface (cPanel >> Home >> Files >> File Manager).
