Unable to view thumbnail images

Q: Unable to view thumbnail images

It seems that ever since CorelDraw 12 was installed, I am unable to view thumbnail images. I can see the image icon, but no pic. I use win 2000 operating system. Has anybody got any suggestions about how to change the setting back so that thumbnail images are viewable again?

Preferred Solution: Unable to view thumbnail images

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Assuming they are .jpg and not .cdr files I suggest you open the folder ( within explorer) the pic's are stored in, then choose view, then select Thumbnails. See if that works.

I'm trying to use a " Help Directory " in a program but am unable to view any related images, All I get is a window with a small check box. Reviewing the properties gives me the following information,ms-its:help_imgs.chm::196 Series of transitions.png.

On a few occasions I'll have the same problem while surfing in FF or Chrome browser. Not sure on the file extension for these.

Is there something to check-uncheck to fix this. I'm using Win Seven.

I am looking for some help with a topic that is quite new to me. I am by no way computer illiterate but digital cameras are kind of new to me.

I am using a Canon EOS 20D and am struggling to be able to view any RAW files. When I say that I can't view them I really mean that I can't view them when I open the folder on the camera through windows I can see the folder where I would expect to see some files, the folder is empty.

I understand that windows does not natively support the viewing of RAW files and that some post processing has to take place so here is what I have done.

I have installed Adobe Photoshop CS2 and updated the RAW plugin to 3.6 and when I browse to the camera and open the folder where I would expect to see the files there is nothing, I also get the same result through the Adobe Bridge. I have also tried to copy the folder from the camera to my desktop and trying again but I get the same results.

I have now tried installing Microsoft RAW image thumbnailer and viewer for windows XP (Version 1.0 Build 50)

I get the same thing with this when I open the folder on the camera and if I copy it to my desktop.

I am able to view the RAW images on the camera's LCD display.

If I set the camera to take pictures in a Jpeg format then I can see the pictures through windows, Adobe photoshop and Adobe bridge.

I really don't know where I'm going wrong and I would appreciate some help and or advice.

So lately, within the last month, I've been having trouble viewing some Tinypic images. I've tried the ones that wont show in all my browsers (Chrome, IE, Safari, and FF), but with no luck. In the top of the browsers it always shows 1x1, and I see nothing at all. It's gotten consistently worse over the last month, and I can see very few Tinypic images now. I can see Photobucket and Imageshack just fine. My first thought what that perhaps it was a particular server that those images were uploaded to, but checking URLS that doesn't seem to be it as they're from many different ones.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! I run Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 2, all things are up to date. I have Kaspersky, and a firewall but I have not changed any settings between the time when it worked and now when it doesn't. My computer is a Toshiba Satellite from 2007, and it's a lemon. So I'm thinking this just has to be another one of it's issues.

A:Unable to view most Tinypic Images

A one pixel image? If so, you'll need a really clean screen and really, really good eyesight to see it. How about an example URL so we can see (or not see)?

Hi, hopefully this will be an easy one for someone. I just formatted and reinstalled everything. When I open "some" emails in aol, I can't view any "online images". Where as, I have a box with a red "X" in the top left hand corner. I can't right click on it to view or change any settings. If I send it to my sbc account in Outlook, I can view it. Some emails in outlook are also doing the same. If I open up IE7, everything there is fine..Now the even crazier part. This does it on all 3 of my computers, all in the same way. The only think I have on all 3 computers in common, is Trend Micro PC-cillin Internet Security 2007. I have disabled it or closed it and it still happens....Any takers?????

A:unable to view images in outlook or aol


Either in the PC Cilin or in your security options in Outlook or AOL, you've disabled pictures it seems. Search through there and see if there is an option to enable them. Should be able to view after that.

I can't view any images with a 'scene7' thread i.e. on sites such as Johnlewis.com & Boots.com - all other pictures download fine apart from the 'scene7' ones - I have tried updating my adobe software, but still no pictures. I use o2 broadband and have Windows Vista installed.

Hope somebody can advise?


A:Unable to view 'scene7' images/pictures

I am having the same problem with the BHS site, B&Q site and the empirestores site!

Also with O2 Broadband.

I have one machine on XP (FF3 and IE7 can't view the images), another on win2k (IE6 and FF3 can't view the images) even my wii can't using opera so i would assume this points at O2.

I have discoverde that changing the the DNS settings will make these sites work. Perhaps use someone like OpenDNS www.opendns.com

After updating FastStone Image Viewer, I'm unable to view most of my images. (I have access to images saved after the problem arose.) In FastStone's thumbnail view, a red cross appears where the photo is/was and when I highlight the thumbnail I see the name of the image and its original size.

The same happens if I try to view the images (via the containing folder) in Picasa or Irfanview, but MS Paint opens the image without problem. I've un installed and updated all the image viewers, and changed the default program for images between various image viewer programs.

However, if I move or copy the images to another file or the desktop I?m able to view them without problem in all of the viewers. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated, thanks.

A:unable to view digital images from floppy drive

Do you normally view them in a browser window? Try this. Put in the floppy whose pics you can't open and then go into Windows Explorer and click on your A drive so that the files appear in the right pane. While holding the shift key down right click on one of the .jpg files and select 'Open With' on the menu. When the Open With screen pops up scroll down and click once on Iexplore to highlight it and then place a check in the little box where it says "always use this program etc..." then click ok. Now the pics should open in a browser window.

This is my first time posting on a forum, so kindly excuse any mistake.

I frequently face a problem with my home internet connection where twitter images do not load properly. This happens both on Win7 Professional (64 bit) laptop as well my iPhone 4s. Sometimes twitter works perfectly fine but more than often, some of the images fail to load.

It works perfectly fine when I am connected to my office wifi, or tethered to my iPhone hotspot, or accessing twitter on my phone using the 3G data plan.

I have switched off my wifi and directly connected my laptop to the modem. My ISP's local technical rep has also replaced the ADSL modem. I have tried using Google DNS and OpenDNS, but still continue to face the same problem. Since this is not a 'critical' problem like internet completely not working, the ISP is probably not giving it all its attention.

I don't know if this helps, i had run namebench on my connection and had got a common error on all the DNSs
twitter.com appears incorrect
google.com is hijacked

I am slightly OCD in that it irritates me to see even a small error, so want to help the tech rep solve this. Or at least identify the issue so that i can tell the ISP to correct it. Hope you guys can help me out. Thanks in advance.

I have a folder with about 20 images and 20 folders (with avi's, images, and txt files inside).

When I initially check the disk size (while the folder is being viewed in Icons View), the disk size reads 28,415,404,695 bytes.

When I change it to Thumbnail View, the disk size increases to 28,415,444,631 bytes.

I know it's only a 39,936 byte difference but I'm just wondering where this is coming from? When I change it back to Icons View, it still reads 28,415,444,631 bytes. How do you get it back to the original 28,415,404,695 bytes?

Hey Guys,

What determines how a URL Thumbnail gets posted in a link to a page? Sometimes I will provide a link to a webpage for reference like on Facebook and there will be a thumbnail along with the URL link. I recently posted a link on Facebook where the URL posted and linked to just fine. The URL Thumbnail shows a picture of a little dog! The thing is, I can't find the picture of the little dog on the website to which the link goes. The website itself is a huge database which requires registration and I could not post the link here by example, sorry.

Hi to everyone & Hi @ THROOPER!

I am missing some icon thumbnail images.

Vaio SZ1VP laptop, Win 7 / Office 2007 / Bitedfender

- Fixed an Infineon/TPM driver problem - icon images still correctly displayed.
- Followed "blackviper" web page tuning advice to reduce active services - icon images still correctly displayed.
- Followed "blackviper" web page tuning advice to increase PC speed (Win7) for "best performance/best appearance". Amongst other tweaks I set classic windows' basic UI.

Problem started when I reverted to basic Win7 UI.

I already tried many forum solutions (including a few from this forum, deleting cache, reg modifications, MS file check/fix which took 30 minutes, right click on icon, properties, etc - but no option to change icon) etc... but none worked.

What does work is:
Open the file which has the missing thumbnail image and save it with a different name - icon's thumbnail image is restored!

Still can't work out a solution for programs' icons missing thumbnail images. Toolbar Outlook and Skype icons still missing correct thumbnail image but Firefox icon image is correctly displayed.

Throoper helped solve a case: ( http://forums.techguy.org/windows-xp/1024674-missing-shortcut-icons-pictures.html ) by offering 2 links & delete cache db.

I would like to try that, if Throoper has links for Win 7. Any other help/support greatly appreciated.

Many people post screenshots here, which I like. And sometimes those images are displayed as thumbnails, which I also like as it allow you to ignore the image if you want, or select it if you want to take a look.

The problem for me is that once I click a post's thumbnail image, it defaults to a "zoomed out" view which does not allow me to be able to see the text on the image.

Now, if I wait around a bit, wiggle the mouse around a bit, click right button (clear), left button (clear) and leave the cursor motionless for a few seconds MAYBE I might get an orange box with arrows aiming outward to appear.

Now *IF* I move the cursor SLOWLY to the box and click on it, THEN I get the "full" image so I can read the text. Sometimes if I move the cursor too fast the box disappears and I have to do the whole ritual all over again.

This is so aggravating and so stupid sometimes I change my mind and don't even bother to view the image. Stupid thing. Aggravating as all heck.

Seems there ought to be a right-click option to just view the image at full resolution, but there's not. Seems also there ought to be a tab at the top of IE to do the same thing, but there's not. Guess I should mention this is an IE thing and not Windows Viewer or anything else.

What is the deal with this ? Am I the only person that hates this stupid thing ? Don't even know what to call it in order to do a Google search.

Is there some way around this ? Some setting or som... Read more

A:how to add my own thumbnail images to files & folders?

Hello Xdash,

One workaround that you could do is to have that folder with only the image or video file that you want to show as the thumbnail, then create a new subfolder in this folder for the rest of the files so that they will not be included with the thumbnail of the main folder.

Another workaround is to create a shortcut of this folder, and change the icon of the folder shortcut.

Hope this helps some,

A:thumbnail view

arungoogol, If you have the view set to show Thumbnails do the following:
Open the folder to view the thumbnails. Hold the Shift key down and click on the View button and select Details.
Remove your finger from the Shift key. You should now see the file names.
Hold the Shift key down and click on the View button and select Thumbnails.
You should now see the thumbnails with the file names under them.

To turn off filenames, hold down the Shift key when you click to open a folder in Windows Explorer or when you switch into thumbnail view. This will turn of the file names, giving more space for the thumbnails. Doing it again turns them back on.

I am having a HP Laptop with Windows XP SP2 installed on it.
It contains folders containing MPEG files. By Choosing the Thumbnail View I can see 4 thumbnails in the folder view as well as individual thumbnails in the fileview of the folders. This WAS working fine.
The problem now is whenever I copy a MPEG file to another folder in the same location I cannot view the thumbnails in the folder view nor can I see the thumbnail in the file view. The Camera that I use is the Sony Handycam. I can see the thumbnails thru the Picture Viewer software given by Sony. But I cannot see the thumbnails thru Windows Explorer.

Please remember that the old files (copied from the same camera) thumbnails can be seen. This is happening for new files only.

I have checked for settings on the camera software but cannot I dont see any options for this.

Can you advise me of a relatively safe player that will do what I'm seeking?

Hello Guys!

Lately I haven't been able to view the thumbnails of my videos in my folders. Most of the videos are MPEGs. It co-insided with putting Nero Buring ROM on, which hijacked all my video files to open with its' own video player. I then selected all the files and clicked the 'Open With' button and selected Windows Media Player and 'Always use this program to open this kind of file'.

Since installing Nero, I haven't had my thumbnail previews, just the Windows Media Player icon. It's really annoying, as I don't know what file is what!

Even uninstalling Nero didn't make any difference, so was it a coincidence?

What do you think maybe the problem?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Hey all, im new to this forum and basically iv just been pokin around the net trying to find an answer to my problem, but with no luck, i find myself here - so hey, im NathaN - right introZ over, heres my problem:

For as long as i can remember i have been archiving music on my hard-drive. A particular preference i have is to set the albums out in thumbnail view with a .jpg of the front cover in each sub-folder to view as the main picture (eliminating the multi-picture low-quality album art XP tends to autoselect) just by simply repeating [right-click] -> properties -> customize -> choose picture.

This is a very long winded and time consuming process which i once brought myself to do, but alas, as my music folder is on my external HDD and a difinitive drive letter had not yet been set, 1 reboot and 1 vintage ipod later and my HDD assigned a new letter, and so my settings reverted back to the original thumbnail view. After assigning my external to [Z] this is no longer an issue, but; after reading this long winded introduction, my question is... can i edit the .ini file or use some 'get' commands in visual basic/create a .bat file etc to automatically select the first .jpg image in each folder when set to thumbnail view (and how do i this). This would save a good few days of manual changes.
