Question: photo thumbnails

Hello guys, I have a problem with my computer or rather with the Operating system. I have found today that I cannot open the thumbnails of photographs. I double click on a thumbnail and the hourglass comes up as thought it is going to open but, that is all that happens and the hourglass symbol just closes. I have checked the file associations? and they are all jpeg so therefore I cannot understand why they will not open. Could you please help? Best regards jonni65.

Hi there chaps.

I have this problem with File Explorer. I have checked the box "Always show icons, never thumbnails"

But not all of the thumbnails are showing. I get a mixture of the "mountain" icon as well as some thumbnails.

I have tried to delete the thumbnail cache and nothing seems to work. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I could do? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Matt.

Answer:Not all photo thumbnails showing.

Having always show Icons not Thumbnails is your problem. Default is that box is left unchecked.

Hi all
All my photo thumbnails have suddenly disappeared and been replaced by icons - I have ensured that the folder options 'Always show icons never thumbnails' is unchecked and also looked in the Control Panel display settings which appear ok
Occasionally when changing the icon size the thumbnails appear frustratingly briefly but then change to an icon!
Any ideas?

Hi:
I have Windows XP Pro. About a week ago I received 2 Microsoft automatic updates. It was about Net frame SP1 and I also installed Internet Explorer 8. Yesterday I went to my Photos folder and all the Jpeg image files with the picture preview thumbnails used to identify the photos have all been replaced with the jpeg file type magnifying glass icon. Others have the Bitmap image type icon. I can no longer identify my photos with the thumbnails. Furthermore, when I open any of the current magnifying glass thumbnail, the photo appears in Internet Explorer. I don't like that. Before this, it used to open in Windows (I think). I opened another magnifying glass thumbnail and it looked like a bar code all scribbly. How do I get my Jpeg and Bitmap images back to the preview thumbnails like it used to be before I installed the updates? Or maybe it was something else that changed the settings? I tried to do a System Restore only to be disappointed by System Restore having been turned off with no restore date to choose.

Hi. All thumbnails for pics on windows folders have recently disappeared. I have double checked all folder and performance settings and tried repairing Windows photo gallery, deleting thumbnails cache, restoring pc to previous state, changing file associations etc etc. No joy.

When I open the pictures folder, thumbnails appear briefly and then quickly revert to icons. "Always show icons, never thumbnails" is definitely unchecked.

I have successfully installed another picture browser which works fine when I work through it directly, unfortunately I still need thumbnails on the standard windows folders for selecting & uploading pics online, which is an important part of my business.

Anyone any suggestions? I have already tried all the suggestions for similar problems I have found on the forums but nothing so far has made any difference.

I have a strange issue that is hindering my work since I am a web developer that works from home and this is occurring on my production machine. The issue just started tonight after I downloaded some pictures from an email a client sent to me. Every time a picture is placed on the desktop explorer crashes in 5-10 second intervals. It doesn't matter what image it is. The same thing occurs inside of safe mode. I had to open up task manager launch command prompt and delete the picture I placed on my desktop in the command line in order to make the computer usable again. It now also crashes when I try to back up my files , of course I probably could do this via command line, but I was hoping for a easy fix.

Here is the log from the event viewer. It seems to be the same for every crash

Win 7 Compatibility system indicates that PSP Photo X3 is needed for use on a 64 bit version of Win 7. My copy of X2 works perfectly well except that, when using Print Layout to set up a page for printing, the thumbnails of photos I import show only as black-filled rectangles. Since this appears to be the only problem, I am loath to spend money on a replacement programme. Does anyone know a way around it, please?

Answer:PaintshopPro Photo X2 - no thumbnails in Print Layout

I have Ult 64 bit and PSP X2. Print layout iworks fine. The image is a .jpg and was open before I went to print layout. I tried opening the same .jpg with print layout open and again it worked fine. This is probably useless info but it will open the files either way.

On BOTH my PC hard drive (windows vista) and my external hard drive in which i use to store extra photos...the photo thumbnails will load and then within a few seconds, will disappear and the icons will be the default photo icon (blue landscape, or whatever it is)...

Why on earth does this happen? I cleared up some extra room on my PC hard drive, which solved the problem for about 12 hours, then it started happening again...i also plugged in my external today to store some more pics, and noticed that it is happening on there too!!

Recently I downloaded a file converter which, after installation, associated all my video files with itself. Previous to downloading this programme my .avi, .mkv files etc were all displayed simply as an icon, yet now they are all displayed as a thumbnail picture. The only solution I have found for reverting my video files back to being displayed simply as an icon is via Folder Options, 'Always show icons, never thumbnails'. However, selecting this option also disables the thumbnail preview for my .jpeg and other image files. Is there any way to disable my video files being displayed with a thumbnail whilst keeping the thumbnail preview for images? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

I have unchecked the option to 'show icons instead of thumbnails' (view>options>folder options) and I have checked 'show icons' (performance>advanced) but still I get icons instead of thumbnails. I have closed and restarted file explorer multiple times to no change. I have posted the screenshot below to show the current settings. Any help would be appreciated!

Thank you.

Answer:Thumbnails not displaying: Unchecked 'show icons'/checked 'thumbnails'

When you right click on the folder itself and select properties, there is a tab called customise. In this tab you can select what type of folder you want and choose Pictures. You can have this cascade down to subfolders as well. As for the other settings you mentioned, I usually keep my folder settings as the defaults.

I admit, I love Vista and since drivers have become stable, Iíve not had any big issues, but there is one thing that Iíve been trying to figure out for a while now with no success and its really bugging me.

Live preview thumbnails seem to go ďblankĒ after a while. If an app has been running for a while, the live preview gets replaced by a static icon. Seems to be some sort of resource management issue, but Iíve been trying to figure out if there is some sort of configuration that can be adjusted to increase some sort of resource limit or turn it off altogether.
 

Answer:Vista Live Thumbnails become Dead Thumbnails

i've formatted, but last i checked, i had realtime previews of windows, only if the window was open

if i minimized the window, i would only get static images. Are you having the same problem, that might be the way it's supposed to work, i' m not sure

Hey all,

Another minor, non-life-threatening irritation:

Running Windows XP Home Edition on a PC, "5.1.2600 Service Pack 1 Build 2600".

When i browse my folders on Thumbnails view, Windows seems to assign *random* pictures from throughout my hard drive to act as the thumbnail for some folders. Actually it's not totally random; when i assign a picture to act as the thumbnail for one folder, it works fine, but then a week or so later i will find that windows has used that picture as the thumbnail for some other completely unrelated folder, elsewhere on the hard drive.

I can easily fix this by right-clicking on the folder and going to:

Properties -> Customize (tab) -> Choose Picture/Restore Default.

Often, that doesn't work: The properties screen will tell me that the default has been restored, for example, but when i actually look at the folder again, it hasn't actually changed anything.

But then, that problem can be solved by going to

Properties -> Customize (tab) -> Change Icon.

...and re-selecting the icon that was already supposedly being used by that folder. That usually solves the problem.

This is mildly annoying, and if anyone knows a permanent fix, i'd appreciate it. But the main problem I wanted help for was for the "My Documents" folders.

The fix given above will not work for "My Documents", "My Music", "My Pictures", "My Videos", because the properties screens f... Read more

It seems that any time I edit a photo in Windows 10 Photos (i.e. crop, filters, etc.), then save a copy of the edited photo, Windows 10 automatically reduces the resolution of my photo. This is causing an issue when I then try to print the edited photos or use them in photo books. Is there a way to save the edited images in the same high resolution as the original photo?

I recently downloaded some digital photos to my computer. I could never figure out how to enhance the quality in Ulead Photo Explorer 8.0 SE Basic, so I opened the photos in Adobe Photo Deluxe 4.0 and enhanced the photos and saved them there. But there is nowhere in Adobe Photo Deluxe which will let me burn these photos to a CD. The photos were saved as a PDD file instead of a JPG file. I need to know if I can correct the way these 92 photos were saved and send them back to Ulead Photo Explorer so I can burn a CD from there!!! This is a mess. Please help me!
 

Answer:Adobe Photo Deluxe transfer to Ulead Photo Explorer 8.0 SE Basic

Hi and welcome.
Firstly why do you need to burn photos to a cd from a photo programme? You can use any burning software (your drive would have come with one or there's free ones available) to burn them as data.
Burning them as data though means they will stay as .PDD format. This is ok if you only want to view them on computers with photodeluxe, photoshop or photoshop elements installed.
I love Photodeluxe and use it all the time. It's only drawback is you can't save as .jpeg quickly on the file, save as, menu. To save your pics as .jpegs from photodeluxe :-
Click file, export, file format, in the drop down menu 'save as file type' in the next box, choose .jpeg.
That will be a pain to do 92 times. The other 2 adobe programmes I mention would be able to batch convert them all in one go. Irfanview is a free programme that can batch convert but it doesn't seem to do .pdd files.
Don't know if anyone else can recommend a free batch converter that will convert .pdd files to jpeg? If so chip in.
Otherwise one at a time from photodeluxe, or burn them as .pdd files are your options.

A short time ago photos I open in Photoshop cc or Elements 11 open in huge size files.  I realize that these programs open the uncompressed files, which are larger than what shows on my harddrive, but when a 6 MB file opens as 51 MB, that seems excessive. As I work on the photo, the file rapidly become unworkable, using huge amounts of memory.  Can anyone help me with this?  I have been on an Adobe forum and haven't been able to resolve this.

Answer:Opening a photo in photo processing creates huge files

Welcome to Bleeping Computer. Whether what you're describing is unusual depends on a few factors. As you say the size variation can just come down to compression, as well as layers. What are the file formats and when you say "huge" amounts of memory, how much?
 
A 6MB .JPG could easily be compressed enough to be 51MB in RAM, especially if it has layers. Photoshop if I recall correctly uses default allocations that should allow filesizes over 1 GB to be handled. A more common cause of bogging down or instability is if the image RAM allocation is set very high to handle large images, but then a lot of effects plugins are used. Photoshop allocates a dedicated memory pool for plugins, and setting image memory very large robs this.

HiHas anyone used the photo editing software from ACD Systems, called "Photo Master Suite"? It is said to include Corel Photopaint 11, but I can find nothing out about this particular element of software in a standalone format. I use Corel Photopaint9 (part of the CorelDraw 9 graphica package), for photo editing. If I can upgrade to Corel Photopaint v9 via the Phot Master route, it would be a bargain.Can anyone advise please?

Answer:Photo Master Suite (Corel Photo-Paint 11, ACD Phot

I use Photopaint version 9 "by default" so am biassed.Also I feel that latest versions of Corel are web orientated or extra frills rather than huge improvements from the bottom.A Photo Master Suite website says "includes Photopaint 11.......Photo editing".I don't think it is a good idea. Paint Shop Pro which has a strong following in this forum is only 10% more, and Corel v. 11 from 300% to 600% more, presumably whether upgrade or outright full version. On the basis of "owt for nowt" - Any bits of Photopaint v.11 you buy for that price will be lonely and not a lot of use compared with your v.9

I took a photo on my Windows Phone 7 (I know it's old) and I can't figure out either how to find the date it was taken or transfer it outside of my phone to see the date on a less limited device.
I tried syncing but the sync process just seems to jump between 0% and 1% with some security error or something, and if I try to email it to myself from the phone I get an error about not being able to send the email.
This is beyond ridiculous, can someone tell me how to find the date this photo was taken or get it out of my phone so I can see on my PC?
Edit: Do newer Windows Phones have a way to see the date photos were taken? If not I'm likely switching to Android (unless they have the same limitation) as much as I want to stay with Windows Phone, if they can't provide such basic functions I'm switching to something else.

By its very nature an MFD is a compromise (often a low cost one at that) - individually each component can normally be bettered by a dedicated version, whether printer, scanner etc.

Hi All,

I'm currently using Dropbox and Sugarsync for storage. I'd like to move to Onedrive but one thing I really like about Dropbox is it automatically uploads the photos from my Android phone to my PC (when they are in range).

I have saved and named (using Adobe Photoshop) about 150 pictures in a folder in My Pictures in XP. Later when I go back to add some add to the folder from a CD from a relative the original photos in the folder have become mixed up and they seem out of order and the names do not coorespond to the photo. When I view them as a slideshow they are in the correct order, but when viewed as a thumbnail the thumbnail does not coorespond to the name. If I "save as" each picture then they are coorespond again to name, but I'm tired of having to go back and resave each picture all over again. This happens lately to larger folders of pictures that I add to My Pictures. Does any one know what causes this and how to prevent or fix the problem.

Answer:Combine files in Windows Photo with Windows Live Photo?

I'm not quite familiar with either one... but I'm sure all your pics are in the Pictures folder and all your videos are in the Videos. So you can just import...

Another alternative is Picasa (if you want one). It automatically scans your whole computer for pics and videos, so it wouldn't be a hassle to find them. It is centrallized in one location.

Answer:thumbnails

Thumbnails will be a different size for different users depending on what screen resolution they each have. So I would try the thumbnail at several screen resolutions and use something that looks good at 1280x1024 (or whatever you think is the most common resolution of your visitors) but yet still looks passably good at a little bit lower screen resolution and at a higher screen resolution. In other words don't be extreme one way or the other at what you think is the most common screen resolution.

In transferring my photo albums to a new HD, I lost Picture Tasks, and whilst I was able to reset this function thru View/Customise this Folder, I find that "Tiles" and "Icons" appear as small thumbnails, whilst the thumbnails themselves appear at one quarter size of normal. By clicking refresh they will spring to normal size. Also the pictures (depending of number in a folder) take much longer to load. My OS is Windows XP Professional. The problem does not relate to the new HD, as it also exists in Documents/My Pictures. I would appreciate your advice how to fix. John.

Answer:Thumbnails

Try looking for a file called THUMBS.DB in every picture folder that's affected. Delete it, close the folder window, then re-open. Windows will create a new THUMBS.DB file when you choose to view as thumbnails again. Hopefully that will cure the problem. The old file may have been corrupted. NOTE: you will have to set Folder Options (Control Panel) to show 'Hidden Files and Folders' in order to see THUMBS.DB
