Anybody have any opinions on using timthumb to scrape thumbnails out of a post versus using get-the-image or even the new WP2.0 thumbnail feature?
get-the-image and the WP feature let you select which image you'd like.. even if that image is not in the post.
get-the-image is back-compatible for anybody who has a lot of thumbs in custom fields. not an issue for me right now.
timthumb is totally automated and the blogger doesn't have to think about it at all. trouble w/ automation is then you lose some control.. and you are pretty much stuck w/ the first image. though i have adapted:
to find the youtube thumbnail on an embedded video. so that makes it a bit cooler.
i'm just curious to hear if anyone has any opinions... any considerations I am overlooking?
