How do thumbnails now work in 8.5.1?

Hi there, I'm trying to develop my own custom Page List block.

I've downloaded the thumbnail_grid to use as a template.

The way I used to get Concrete5 to produce a thumbnail was:

$img = $page->getAttribute('thumbnail');
$thumb = $ih->getThumbnail($img, 100, 75, true);

<a href="<?=$url?>"><img src="<? echo $thumb->src ?>" width="<? echo $thumb->width ?>" height="<? echo $thumb->height ?>" alt="" /></a>

but I am rather confused with what I see in the thumbnail_grid code which is:

$thumbnail = $page->getAttribute('thumbnail');

<a href="<?php echo $url ?>" target="<?php echo $target ?>"><?php
$img = Core::make('html/image', array($thumbnail));
$tag = $img->getTag();
echo $tag;

I've tried fiddling with the css, but that only changes the thumbnail size proportionately...

If anyone can give me a pointer, I'd be most grateful

OK, so I've made my custom thumbnail size and rescanned my images.

I now have a custom thumbnail type called 'pagelist_item'

How do I apply my custom thumbnail into my pagelist block template?

All I can see in the template is:

$img = Core::make('html/image', array($thumbnail));
$tag = $img->getTag();
echo $tag;

So where do I tell it which thumbnail I want it to use? Or am I missing something???

i made this solution that works fine for me:
$app = \Concrete\Core\Support\Facade\Application::getFacadeApplication();
$md = new Mobile_Detect(); 
if ($md->isMobile()) {
$co = $app->make('config');$co->set('my_site_view', 'mobile_image_handle');
$co = $app->make('config');$co->set('my_site_view', 'myDesktop_handle');}
            $co = $app->make('config');
   $linky = $co->get('my_site_view');
$type = \Concrete\Core\File\Image\Thumbnail\Type\Type::getByHandle($linky);      
$thumb = $img->getThumbnailURL($type->getBaseVersion()); 

I don't know if it's possible to do this better but it works and load a small thumb in mobile devices or a desktop version.
