WebP Thumbnail Images in Thunar

The WebP format, which is developed by Google is becoming ever more popular on the net these days. With many popular websites and web browsers adopting it. WebP offers a modern image format that “provides superior and lossy compression for images on th web”. Having played with the file format myself, I can confirm that using WebP can dramatically reduce the file size of images, while keeping almost the same level of detail as a source image as in the “PNG” format.

Custom Lutris Game Banner Images

For those using the “Thunar” file manager in Linux - i’ve written a small script which adds a custom action to Thunar. It uses ffmpeg to convert large screen grab images to the size required for Lutris game banners images. For games that don’t have a banner, you can screenshot your own to your Pictures/ folder when the game is open, then convert the saved images for use as game banners with this script.
