How to create and apply custom site template for SharePoint? I want to create a site template with minimal features to get started.
Is there any link which shows screen-shots of the templates which are by-default available in SharePoint 2013?
For a list of the OOTB Site Definitions with screen-shots see SharePoint 2013 Site Templates
Before creating your own Site Definition consider if what you really need is instead a WebTemplate (The main advantages being supports updating. cloud and local availability, the main disadvantage being not supporting Feature Stapling).
For a description of both Site Definitions and WebTemplates including comparison and instructions on how to create them see MSDN article Site Types: WebTemplates and Site Definitions (nothing changed in this area for SP2013 so the SP2010 article is still 100% relevant)
