I've been looking around for an FTP file explorer that can read image thumbnails on my server. I stored all my image files up there so that I could view my files from my Android device, and my computer.

Ironically, I can view thumbnails on my Android using the acclaimed ES File Explorer, but I'm not able to view them using Windows Explorer. LOL

Cyberduck allows you to view thumbnails of your images on the server. You might have to download a separate plugin or something, but it should allow you to do this.

Looks like I nearly forgot to reply to this, thanks so much for your response. Cyberduck looks good.. I've also been balancing between CoreFTP, SmartFTP, and FTP Voyager. Those 3 have image thumbnail capabilities too; none of them appear to be a clear cut winner in terms of popularity, but they look like they do the job.

I actually found an even better idea than using an FTP file explorer to view images----through a web-based interface.

I have no idea how I could do this, but it would definitely prevent the server from saving data onto my hard drive in order to view the thumbnails. Does anybody know how in the world I could do this through software????

I would be surprised if you could find a way to do this without having to download the images, since that's likely what would have to happen in order to view the thumbnails. Finding a web based client to do that, well, that is very improbable.

I've asked around the internet about this, and someone mentioned using an 'online document management' software like SharePoint or KnowledgeTree. I have no idea how to use either of them, but apparently I might be able to access my server through them?

You would have to look into that, because they both look like collaboration software and at quick glance, I am not sure if they support FTP. It seems like Knowledge Tree would be the most likely to support this, since it seems to be a bit more open. I can't tell, either, if they cost money.
