Description

When uploading files, give the option to create a thumbnail for all objects, regardless of the content model.

Allow the option of uploading a thumbnail file in jpeg format. That is, give the "system generate" and the "upload" options on the Digital File Handler page.

When generating a thumbnail for still images when there is more than one image on a record, generate the thumbnail from the first one.

When generating a thumbnail for text when there is more than one image on a record (e.g. book, pamphlet, etc.), generate the thumbnail from the first one.

If PDF is uploaded (or derived from a MS Office format), generate a thumbnail from the first page (frame) in the PDF.

In a few cases, the first image or page might be blank, or a dark blur, or minimally informative (e.g. containing only a copyright statement). The option to create the thumbnail -- or not -- is given to the metadata creator, who will be advised by the collection manager.

When uploading ETDs, automatically generate the thumbnail from the first page.

When uploading Faculty Deposit objects, automatically generate the thumbnail from the first page.

This has been discussed and approved by the User Services and Applications Working Group.

Yes, I agree with Rhonda to give Metadata manager an option to let system generate thumbnail.

For multiple TIFF files, the thumbnails are generated correctly by WMS for Photograph, Document, Manuscript and Book content models. I will update the existing file policies for these content models on the production server.

Thumbnails are not creating during batch uploading process regardless of content model.

This needs to be configured in the file policies.

Thumbnail Jpeg file policy exists for all content models except video and audio. On the file upload screen, there will be an option to create thumbnail jpeg. Closing this bug as thumbnails are generated for majority of the objects. Any new issues with thumbnails will be entered as a new bug.
