CS6: lost previews and thumbnails

Jul 13, 2012 6:25 PM

Tags: #preview #cs6 #phtoshop

Surprisingly this is not in the FAQ section: how do you folks get around the problem of having no previews when opening a file from Windows Explorer?

 

I realise Adobe wants us to use Bridge but I'm sure I am not alone in finding this unstable and slow.

 

Another forum recommends intalling Sagethumbs which is great for showing thumbails in Windows folders, and also shows really tiny thumbnails when opening a file in Detail view.

 

But I really miss having the preview pane to see full size images when selecting a file to open in Detail view.

 

Has anyone found a workaround for this issue?

    Adobe point its finger at Microsoft.  It you install a package like FastPictureViewer codec you can have thumbnails in window explorer and windows file dialogs. Other complain they only want the old way a single file preview not a list of thumbnails. They want perfection and unity in this not so perfect world. They can dream who knows maybe some day No!

    I like the FastPictureViewer Codec pack myself.  FULL support for all the functions required of codecs.  Commercial software, but quite inexpensive and well worth the price.
