That sounds like you're hitting a well known (but difficult to reproduce reliably) MacOS bug - sometimes, it just doesn't show the thumbnails like it is supposed to.
ChrisCox strange as OSX reads the PS 5 image icon file in the "get info" while in PS CC 2014 it doesn't read the image icon file.
It definitely seems more like a Adobe software issue.
Do you have any suggestions on how I can retain the image icon so I can save onto my folders?
Is Bridge CC a workable alternative for you or do you still need thumbnails at the Finder level?
This has already been discussed to death in other topics - every indication is that this is an intermittent OS bug, possibly triggerd by some other metadata in the files. Unfortunately only Apple can answer why and when it would happen by finding the bug in their code, but they have a difficult time reproducing the bug and thus have not been able to find the bug.
I do on occasion get jpgs and pngs that won't render a thumbnail or preview in MacOS. I have 10.9.5
I don't have this problem, although I just have CC and CC 2014 on my Macbook.
I would open those up in Preview.app and try a Save As... and I would get the thumbnail and thumbnail preview back.
Not really the best idea,but you can see if it helps.
These are my file saving options, perhaps there is something there you can try.
Lets see when Yosemite comes out in the New Year. Certain this issue will be resolved by then.
Thank you for your reply!
For the moment, I'm having to open the PS CC2014 image file in PS CS5 save it in CS5 then go to get info.
It's a minor nuisance as I only need one selected image thumbnail to use on a folder. It's not that I need 100's of these images all with thumbnails.
Granted there are a few features that CS5 has that CC2014 doesn't have and visa versa, so I'll probably dip back and forth between the apps for what I need.
I guess this thumbnail bug does plague a few Apple systems. On my Macbook, it's the Large Document Format or PSB files that will not render thumbnails at the Finder level. Single layer PSDs are ok, but layered PSDs are are tricky.
In the Wintel world, there are third party codecs that do a fantastic job of rendering thumbs even PSB at the desktop level. Not sure if you want to keep a Windows PC for that, so good luck on whatever workflow you choose.
