    If the functionality is similar to services offered, I do not see the benefit to spend time integrating other third-party thumbnail services. Would there be any additional benefit that you can see?

    Ther are several other thumbnail generator with built in API I found. The benefit is that they are free and highly configurable.
    Right now robothumbs doesn’t seem to generate thumbs very often leaving that ugly blue square and thumbshots new pricing for configuration seems challenging.
    This is the one I settled on https://www.thum.io/documentation/api/url
    Just thought it might be something to consider for the next version.
    BTW is there a published road map for that?

    I see. Now, looking at thum.io, they start charging after you generate a 1000 thumbnails. I would much prefer a service that offers small thumbnails for free always, than one where you have to start paying after a while. I am also not getting a lot of requests around thumbnails, so I don’t feel like this is a feature that is getting a lot of use.

    If you really want to see this feature implemented, I can always do it through a paid engagement, where I would estimate the work needed to add support for this service, then implement it for an agreed-upon amount, and make it part of the general plugin.

    And no, there is no roadmap. Link Library is a plugin that I advance in my free time. I have been working on version 6.0 for 18-24 months now, where I will convert the plugin from using the built-in Link Manager to using Custom Post Types. This will add a lot of functionality to the plugin, but also takes a lot of time to implement.

    Gotcha thanks for the update it prolly makes sense to wait for the shift to CPT before adding new thumb option. Thanks again

    I do use the thumbnail generation feature (really really needed!!) and most of the time neither robothumbs or the other one have been generating thumbnails at all.

    I am about a month away from releasing version 6.0 of Link Library. Once that is out the door and stable, I will look into adding support for more thumbnail generation services.
