deleting file icons (previews)

I've noticed that when I go to have my digital pix printed at a kiosk, if the file has a preview icon (ie a thumbnail of the actual picture is the file icon), the kiosk will think there are two images for each picture (the real one and the preview icon). This is a pain.

Does anyone know how to remove the preview icon--better yet, batch remove a bunch of them?

FWIW, I'm using a Mac. I know I can remove them one at a time by doing a "get info" on the file, selecting the icon, and then "cutting" it away. That's slow when I have lots of pix!

Under Preferences>Saving Files, change the Image Previews to Never Save, and run a batch on the image to re-save.

Can't run a batch to do that, you say? Sure you can. Get the batch enhancement here:

Isn't exactly the solution, but will be quicker than doing it manually. Get all your images in a folder and batch them using Channel Mixer TIFF -- make no changes on the mixer and save. You could also try the lowest sharpening.

I could be coaxed to add something to this set or create a utility set...and then again, you can possibly record your own using a PS6 demo, which I believe can be located on

That help?

Perfect & Fast solution

Use GrimRipperCM

GrimRipperCM let Delete Resource Fork with Right Mouse Button Menu (Contextual Menu) from selected file.

GrimRipperCM variants:
StandardCM: equivalent to original version with two submenus
ProCM: one submenu
ExtremeCM: command available at root menu level

Other Utility that work same way (contextual menu) is

That allow add or remove Custom Icon/Preview/Thumbnail. It let convert images to other formats. With QuikcImage you can Batch Rename selected images.
