Date Released: June 2nd, 2009

Since the March 13th announcement by Amazon Web Services to discontinue their Alexa Thumbnail Service effective June 12th, Shrink The Web has been offering a full month of ALL PRO Features to the abandoned Alexa developers. The response has been tremendous as Shrink The Web has acquired a large number of Alexa’s higher volume customers and a good many small but growing users as well. New users rave about the highest quality screenshots, fastest capture/delivery turn-around, and largest selection of PRO features that can be found only at Shrink The Web.

To ensure a superior quality service amidst escalating demand, Shrink The Web has upgraded to the latest state-of-the-art servers, increased storage speed and size, and brought many additional screenshot generators online for public and dedicated use. As always, Shrink The Web is also listening to customer feedback and working to expand upon its innovative and market-defining PRO feature offerings which help to maximize creative potential.

The special offer to Alexa Thumbnail Developers ends July 12th. Don’t miss your chance to experience the very best at no charge for one full month. To take advantage of this special offer simply sign up for a free account and enter your public Alexa Access ID number in the STW Lobby. This promotional offer is only available to new customers who were previously customers of the Alexa Thumbnail Service.

What is included in the ALL PRO Features package?

All Six (6) Default Sizes
Inside Pages (not just homepages/sub-domains)
Full Length Pages
Custom Sizes
Refresh On-Demand
Private Labeling and API Access
…and of course, available to all users is the ability to cache thumbnails locally!
