CS6 PSD and PDF file icons not appearing...

Currently using OSX Lion, and for some reason all other computers (win7 and Macs) on the network here where I work cannot see image icons anymore on the files that I save using CS6. This was never a problem before in previous versions of Photoshop and only seems to affect any os here that isnt LION, including Snow Lep and WinXP thru 7. When someone else is viewing the documents all they see is a grey box where the thumbnail would usually be.


It's causing a headache for some of the people here that I work with. So i'm bouncing back and forth between CS6 and CS4 (never upgraded to 5).


Any idea if there is a setting I need to change in this version of PS? Or is this a bug? Thanks!

    If you are referring to the thumbnails, see link below. You should see a general PS icon though.

    The preview was causing problems on MacOS and Windows, so it was removed.

    on windows there are several tools (free and commercial)  who enable the filemanager (OS dialogs) to display previews for more formats.

    i guess there is something like that for OSX.


    i prefer to have bridge open for browsing through a lot of files.

    if only because the preview is bigger.

    That's precisely what Bridge is for.


    Bridge started out as Photoshop's image browser, nothing more, nothing less.


    I always launch Bridge first, before any other Adobe application.

    No, it's part of Photoshop.


    It seems a little strange to complain about a feature not being supported by a given version of Photoshop on a machine on which Photoshop is not installed.
