comment Thumbnails of other frames in beamer
@GeorgesDupéron, does thumbs-3.tex compile as-is with thumbs-3.sty? I prefer the features of your method to mine/alexurba's but when I have tried compiling it, I receive many errors. What version of LaTeX are you using? Here is a copy of the errors.

@alexurba, I've updated your answer to include the option of slide display selection. It was only a few lines of code, and I didn't want to create an entire new answer just for the minor tweak. I have yet to figure out how to add the frame titles.

Your solution is simple and eloquent. Thank you for sharing even though there was an accepted answer. I will definitely be using this in the future. I have two questions: 1) is it possible to pass a list of numbers from the document to the style to define which slides to show (e.g., showThumbs = [2, 3, 5] would be passed to \foreach \i in {2, 3, 5}{... and 2) is it possible to have the frame title printed under each thumbnail?

Yes, I downloaded 4 random images and named them according to your code (to prevent modifying the code); however, I am still experiencing the errors listed in the screen cap. above.

Gonalo, this looks perfect. However, when I try to compile with PDFLaTeX, I get the following errors: "\beamer@presort #1#2#3->\long \def \beamer@todo {#1}\def \beamer@ospec {}\be..." and "! Argument of \beamerx@\includegraphics has an extra }." I don't understand the first error, but I've checked several times and I can't find an extra }.

Fran: This seems like it could work well for presentations; however, I am still interested in creating a graphical index for a thesis.
