Gadwin printscreen will answer your first requirement - it can be set to  
screen grab the window (no chrome) and save a reduced size image to a  
directory of your choice all in one click.

but what you really need is ImageMagick (http://www.imagemagick.org/) and  
write yourself some routines using the "import" command.

import will read a window and output it as an image file, you can then use  
ImageMagick to manipulate that file to create a thumbnail
