This tool is used for modifying and managing images that are saved to your account. cPanel provides 3 methods in which you can modify and manage the images, these methods are:

  1. Thumbnailer,

Let’s discuss each of these methods in details:

  1. Thumbnailer:-

This tool creates thumbnails from images in the directory. Photos and graphics use a lot of server space. This can make Web pages load a lot slower. One option you have is to use thumbnails of your pictures instead. A thumbnail is a smaller version of the same picture.
