    This thread has been open for over a year. I've installed Windows 7 and really hoped that PSD and AI files would be included in the new and improved Windows Imaging Component (WIC). I guess I was asking too much. There are improvements in handling of TIF and GIF files and in extended metadata but still no thumbnails or previews for PSDs and AIs. Adobe has posted the RC for their DNG format and it works fine. Since it's still not in the WIC, are there any plans to write a codec for PSD files?

    In case it helps anyone, Directory Opus is an alternative file manager which supports Windows 7 and 64-bit, and which has PSD and DNG viewers and thumbnail-generation built-in.

     

    (You don't need to rely on any other components being installed, which can be handy if you want to view/thumbnail those formats on machines without Photoshop installed.)

     

    It only works with PSD files that have embedded thumbnails saved with them but I think that's true of most PSD thumbnailers.

     

    Website's here for anyone who is intereted: http://www.gpsoft.com.au/

     

    The website is pretty ugly, don't let that put you off the app. Have a look at my guides if you want a quick overview of the program:

    I've just got it on a 30 day trial Leo. It looks good so far but will take some time to explore.


    Does it have the ability to customise Open and Save dialogs?

    It doesn't modify the Open/Save dialogs so you'll still be without PSD thumbnails within those. I guess it could install its own thumbnail handler to provide PSD, DNG, etc. thumbnails system-wide. Could be worth asking for if it looks like Photoshop itself isn't going to get fixed in this regard.

    If you are looking for PSD thumbnails in the Open and Save dialogs, then you'll need something like our PSD codec.
