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.
So wait, when browsing through files using the finder on osx 10.6 and 10.5 there will not be preview thumbnails anymore? If that's the case then that really sucks, we use that to browse thousands of PDF documents here everyday for press. Also, there is no PS icon. Where there would bo one is an empty space, and when single clicked on there is a white box surrounded by a grey line.
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.
…to browse thousands of PDF documents here everyday…
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.
Anyway to get bridge for free? The 8 G5 macs we use here do not have Photoshop installed on them, as they do not need it. It just seems odd to me that this simple feature that every program including all previous versions of PS is now gone. I guess I will have to see if there is a free program for that for OSx, seems unseccessary though. Probably just going to have to stick with CS4.

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.
I can see what you are saying about being a little strange to complain about that, but, it worked before. As you can see in the screenshot. So, maybe im trying more or less to point this issue out, given this is a beta.
P.S. I just went over and checked this issue on another machine that does have a previous version of Photoshop on it and the same issue occurs. Like the screenshot posted above.
