How do you create and customize thumbnails in Bootstrap?

Posted by Andre Scott | Updated on

For creating thumbnails using Bootstrap, add a <a> tag with .thumbnail class around an image. It will add four pixels of padding as well as a gray border. When hovered, an animated glow outlines the image.

You can add any type of HTML content, such as buttons, headings, or paragraphs, into thumbnails. This is how to customize thumbnails using Bootstrap:

  • Change the <a> tag with .thumbnail class to a <div> tag
  • Add anything that you need inside the <div> tag. You can use the default span-based naming convention for sizing
