  • Thumbnails (CS6)

    Hello Folks!
    Why PS CS6 stores some photos with the 'PS' icon instead of their thumbnail? (PHOTO 1)

    And why certain JPG thumbnail do not appears?
    (PHOTO 2)

    Thanks all!

    Re: Thumbnails (CS6)

    1st problem: Several versions ago, Adobe removed a component in PS which allowed thumbnails of .psd files to be seen in your Windows environment. In order to see them now, you need to install a viewer program. I have been using PastPictureViewer Codec pack which will allow you to display thumbnails for psd and many many more file suffixes,

    2nd Problem: Have only found that when the file was either corrupt or the file was miss-labeled as a jpg when it was actually a png, bmp, gif, or something else.
    Cheers, Murray

      I'm on Mac 10.8.
      Meanwhile I realized that isn't just my problem but a common one. People can find a large forum involving even one of the creators of PS here:

      Yes, this is a question. I've been using my trial of Photoshop CS6 Extended for 10 days now. I have run into a peculiar problem - when saving a file Photoshop does not display any sort of icon. No thumbnail, no generic, nothing. It's not a huge problem, I can always open the image but not by double...

      The thumbnails in the open dialog are provided by the OS (as is most of the open/save dialog).* So there is still a problem with the OS creating or displaying thumbnails.
      It's not a matter of blaming Apple without reason, just that Apple has an awful lot of bugs in the OS that don't get fixed very quickly.
      Here we know that the OS is responsible for the thumbnails, that clearing the OS cache of thumbnail and metadata fixes it for some people, and that even after that the OS can't always draw the thumbnails when it is supposed to.* I have no idea why that would be worse in some applications than others - but the OS is clearly failing to draw thumbnails, and that's not something that Photoshop has any control over.

      Btw the bug haven't been fixed yet.

        Photoshop .psb file icons OSX
        by digitalgrb8
        Recently moved to Photoshop CC and have found out to our horror that psb files no longer save with icons in the finder on mac osx 10.8 or 10.9.

        Adobe say it is apple problem. Can any other pro photoshop users confirm or deny this problem. I foresee it being a big issue in coming months....

        I was working on an image resoration of an old family photo in Photoshop CS. I saved it, reopened it, worked on it, saved it, and then the bird hit the fan! I can't open it anymore.


        If you want to email me I can forward the image, possibly. Dunno.

        I am trying to find some way of viewing thumbnails of CS5 psd files on my system which is Windows 7 64 bit. I am fairly sure that this functionality was available on previous versions of Windows (32bit) or PS but I cannot find anything that will work - have tried a couple of dll's and registry hacks...

        Keyboard Issue with CS6
        by AKMac
        I've only recently upgraded to CS6, and I'm having a problem that I can't understand or solve. Annoyingly, it isn't happening all the time. When I hit a key (for example the spacebar, to access the Hand Tool) or when I double click a layer to rename it and try to start typing, I get an alert sound when...
