<imgur w="200">xSO1ufX.jpg</imgur>

<imgur thumb="yes" w="250" comment="This is a chicken in class.">xSO1ufX.jpg</imgur>

Images can be thumbnailed and size controlled by using w attribute for width and setting the thumb attribute to yes and entering text into the comment attribute. The thumbnailed version is wrapped in a div .imgur-thumb tag and class for skin based and wiki wide CSS changes.
