Thumbnail/ Preview Question

I have used Aperture since the start.... but i am getting a strange behaviour with thumbnails/previews.... imported raw files from a Canon 1DS MK2 in to a new project. Activity monitor shows the processing of the files (1,146) i am then getting previews that look faded.... until i turn off 'Quick Preview' and it will load the properly saturated preview. I have rebuilt the thumbnails and reprocessed a few times..... and when this has finished there are still a mixture of good previews and faded previews. Makes it very hard to edit properly.
I am using a referenced project with the images stored on an external FW800 drive.
Any ideas ?

Maybe it isn't the smartest way, but this should work:<br /><br />... call info.Parse (host, stream) etc here - the usual stuff<br />{<br />     // find biggest jpeg image for preview<br />     unsigned int subMaxW=0;<br />     int subMaxI=-1;<br />     for(unsigned int i=0;i<info.fIFDCount;i++)<br />     {<br />          dng_ifd* pIFD=info.fIFD[i].Get();<br />          if (ccJPEG==pIFD->fCompression && 1==pIFD->fNewSubFileType)<br />          {<br />               if (pIFD->fImageWidth>subMaxW)<br />               {<br />                    subMaxW=pIFD->fImageWidth;<br />                    subMaxI=i;<br />               }<br />          }<br />     }<br />     if (subMaxI>=0) // load desired jpeg preview<br />     {<br />          unsigned int i=subMaxI;<br /><br />          dng_ifd* pIFD=info.fIFD[i].Get();<br />          if (ccJPEG==pIFD->fCompression && 1==pIFD->fNewSubFileType)<br />          {<br />               // seek to pIFD->fTileOffset[0] and load jpeg<br />          }               <br />     }<br />}

  • Upgrade to 2013 leaves "Images" library without Thumbnail Preview working

    The issue I am seeing is occurring after an update from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013. The library is a publishing library created in 2010. These features are enabled in 2013. Looking at the "Thumbnail Preview" column in any view shows the
    generic sheet of paper icon. Viewing the images in the "Thumbnail" view shows the thumbnails correctly. The images for the list in question are all .gif. As far as I know those are the only ones failing, but we could have missed some other filetypes. 
    I've tried moving a document to a newly created Images library and the preview shows as expected. So I believe I've pretty easily demonstrated that the actual image is not a problem and that SharePoint 2013 can render it. However, it's not a workable solution
    to move these files.
    If I open the library with Fiddler, I get a 404 error for 256_icgif.gif. From there it's been sort of a dead end as I wouldn't know where to test and see if that's part of the issue.
    This is our dev environment before upgrading to 2013 so we're looking for a fix we can perform during or before the upgrade.

    Hi Christopher,
    Casting my mind back to the Beta, I hit something similar during a test upgrade and if I remember rightly it was to do with the content type mappings that came across. There are two content types Picture and Image which behave differently, so try swapping
    the available content types in the library and changing that.

  • Thumbnails/Previews not showing on tiffs viewed on Mac

    I have a client who is asking me why the tiffs I'm supplying him with don't have thumbnails/previews. He's working an a Mac and has had to resave the files in order to create previews. I haven't been able to answer his question. Any takers? TIA. PShop CS4 / Windows XP.

    Well, Photoshop does offer the ability to choose not to save thumbnails/previews...  Check Edit - Preferences - File Handling.  What's your setting?

  • Performance, minimum bandwidth, thumbnail previews for PDF and InDesign Files with web content viewer

    We are considering using DPS with a web content viewer for large PDFs and/or InDesign files. The client using a web viewer might have very limited bandwidth (some as low as 256Kbps). We ask:
    1 - How well does the web viewer perform with very large PDFs and InDesign files  (500 MB+) with limited bandwidth? Does the file stream in chunks and the PDF shows as soon as the first page or two are available, with the rest loading in the background, or does the entire file come down in one part and then shown?
    2 - Can PDF and InDesign files support thumbnail previews? For example, one image per PDF page and user can scroll forward and back.
    Your thoughts and comments are greatly appreciated.

    Hi Stephen,
    The way the web viewer works is that it converts the PDF/InDesign files to PNGs along with additional HTML assets. Assets are downloaded as they’re ready for a given page (e.g. first, page 1 is filled with its assets as they become available, then page 2, etc), so a reader wouldn’t need to wait for the entire article to load. The next few pages are also loaded in the background, so the reader wouldn’t be likely to notice lag as they flipped through pages to the next page after reading the current one. So the lag will depend on the size of an individual page.
    For your question around thumbnails, the web viewer does not load a preview image so the reader would need to wait for the assets I described above to load.
    Hope this helps...

  • AVCHD (MTS) video files thumbnails previews

    How can I have video thumbnail previews for my AVCHD (Mts) video files in Premiere, After Effects?
    I can preview alla the other formats but not the above one.
    Thank you.

    Hunt is correct in that the video codec AVCHD (MPEG4 AVC/H.264) was not supported by Premiere Elements until version  7. A variety of converters were used in those days before Premiere Elements 7 (because of AVCHD non support) and after versions 7 - 9 because of the resource demands of the AVCHD editing in those programs.
    Typically the converters in those days took the AVCHD to a MPEG2 HD.mpg form. The most popular one at the time was the free Koyote Soft HD converter. You may want to check it out and determine if it would work for you.
    As I recall there were a lucky few at the time who had Sony Vaio computers which offered an add on for AVCHD support in Premiere Elements 4 running on a particular Sony Vaio computer.
    Any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

  • Acrobat Pro 9 - Disable thumbnail preview in PDF file icons on Desktop

    After upgrading to Acrobat Pro 9, the file icons of PDF files on my Windows 7  desktop changed to showing a thumbnail preview. I want to get the standard PDF file icon back for all PDF files. Can someone please tell me how?

    Did you ever find an answer for this??? I had the same issue and was searching for an answer. I saw this and since I fixed mine I thought I would tell you what I did. Also, in case someone else finds this and needs an answer.
    Opened Windows Explorer -> Tools -> Folder Options
    Go to the View tab
    Check "Always show icons, never thumbnails"
    Hit Apply
    All your PDF files on your desktop should now show with the generic PDF icon.
    Reverse this to get the preview icon "thumbnails".

  • Overprint Preview question and another issue...

    CS4, Win XP.
    Overprint Preview question:
    The other day i sent a file for printing (poster) in PDF and CS2 formats. For some reason, the printer converted the file to a .tif and then printed. Parts dropped out... Both the PDF and CS2 files looked fine.Description follows:
    1/ Background black
    2/ Design element over the black (blue lines to form a wave).
    3/ Logo in red and white. Plus a line of text in red. And other text in white.
    The white of the logo vanished. The red line of text kind of vanished... printed very faintly and only (i think in parts). Printer tried to do a patch job of printing the line separately and pasting... anyway... to cut a long story short, he wanted the final output in .tif. OK...
    So, i converted to tif and sure enough... those parts vanished... did a search here and found the solution - view file in Overprint Preview and then in Attributes, turn off the Overprint Fill... so all well...
    So, the question is, why does this happen? And, how, do i know in advance that x or y is likely to cause a problem? I have noticed in Bridge that sometimes, parts of a logo or a line of text does not show... but looks fine in AI or Acrobat... now realise the cause, but not the reason.
    The other issue...
    Same black background(s)... placed Photoshop file/s with a transparent background... Prints fine at the printers (various machines and media) ... But on the laserprinter an HP Color Laser Jet CP1510 series, there's a dark patch around the image (the actual file area).
    Again, any ideas?

    <snipped>... so if your looking for this forum to play detective and tell you who in your workflow set the elements to overprint, I don't think this can be done. I don't think I have ever seen Illustrator set any elements to overprint all by its self. <snipped>
    Hi PrepressPro...
    Many thanks for your earlier inputs, but not quite sure where you got the idea that i want someone or anyone to play detective... i've understood the Overprint problem... and moved on. If anything, maybe i was just musing and wondering if any particular action turns on "Overprint Fill"...
    Or maybe, i was referring to the second question which has not been resolved yet... Quoting it below for easy reference:
    The other issue...
    Same black background(s)... placed  Photoshop file/s with a transparent background... Prints fine at the  printers (various machines and media) ... But on the laserprinter an HP  Color Laser Jet CP1510 series, there's a dark patch around the image  (the actual file area).
    To elaborate, the pix above are product shots which have been cut out and placed on a transparent background... The PS file is then placed in AI CS4 with the object option selected to maintain transparency. The transparent area is printing darker on the printer above. But is fine when sent to commerciqal printers...

  • Display thumbnail preview for images in a Document Set

    I have a Document Set with Images in it.  I would like to show a thumbnail preview of the images in the view of the files in the document library.  I added the Thumbnail Preview column but it just shows a large File Icon.

    According to your description, my understanding is that you want to display the picture of the images in the document set.
    I recommend to create a hyperlink type column and format URL as picture to show the images in documents set.

  • Thumbnail Preview for RAW Files Not Appearing in Bridge

    I'm running Adobe Bridge 5.1 on a Mac OS 10.9.2 (recently upgraded to Maverick) and I can no longer see thumbnail previews for my RAW files (which include .NEF, .CR2 and .RAF) though as of a few days ago this wasn't a problem. Not sure if it's related to the Maverick upgrade... but FYI, I do see thumbnail previews for .TIFF and .JPEG files.
    I've already purged my cache generally and have also as a test chosen a local file to purge - that didn't work.
    I've restarted Bridge at least 2x by pressing and holding the Option key.
    I've also checked for Bridge updates - everything is up to date.
    My Cache Options (within Preferences) are set to "Keep 100% Previews in Cache" and "Automatically Export Cache to Folders When Possible" - both checked.
    Also downloaded the Adobe Camera Raw and DNG Converter 8.3, installed it but that didn't work.
    I can't seem to find my Bridge cache folder or at least what's in the Library's "Caches" folder doesn't include anything for Bridge - see screenshot below.
    Please help! Thank you in advance.

    To me it seems related to your Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) converter. Clue inhere is you only miss the Raw files and have no problems in seeing other formats like jpeg and tiff.
    The screenshot you delivered is from the wrong library, however, this same library (the one on system level) also is the location where you should be able to view the correct version of your ACR plugin. The path: library (same as per your screenshot)/Application support/ Adobe/ Plug ins/ CS6/ File Formats. inhere should be only one version of Camera Raw (called: "Camera Raw.plugin") and this should show version 8.3 (141).
    I'm not sure about your bridge version number, Bridge 5 comes with PSCS6 but my most recent version of Bridge is
    Anyway, if you have only one ACR (8.3) installed in the above mentioned path then you might want to try to delete the Bridge plist file and Bridge cache file manually.
    For this you have to Quit Bridge and find the user library (by default hidden, use menu Go in Finder and press option key to reveal).
    Inhere find the plist file (user(your user name) / library / Preferences  and inhere find and manually delete the file called: "com.adobe.bridge5.plist"
    The in same user library find Bridge Cache. User/Library/Caches/Adobe/Bridge CS6. Inhere are 2 files, the adobe Bridge plug in cache and the folder called Cache. delete (or move outside libray) both items.
    The restart Bridge (If needed also again hold option key to reset preferences) and this will create fresh files for the previous deleted items, leaving you with an almost out of the box factory set version of Bridge.

  • (SOLVED) Taskbar thumbnail preview disappears quickly

    I have windows 7 RC on my laptop, Dell 1501.
    When I start one or more programs from the taskbar and hover my mouse pointer on them I can see thumbnail previews.
    The problem is that thumbnail previews disappear too quickly even though my mouse pointer is still on the opened program in taskbar.
    I have to move my mouse so I can get another quick preview.
    I notice that if I click on an empty space on the taskbar with the left mouse button, and then point to an opened program the thumbnail preview stays for as long as my mouse pointer is on the program.
    Does anybody have that problem?
    I notice something else,
    if I open regedit or computer management and one of them is active, all other opened programs on the taskbar have long thumbnail preview.
    But if for example windows explorer is the active window on taskbar, thumbnail previews stay for a short time.
    SOLUTION: dell 1501 specific and may be bios version
    1. shut down the laptop
    2. remove the power supply and the battery
    3. press and hold the power button (I pressed it 2-3 times and kept it pressed for about 1 second) --- obviously the laptop will not start.
    4. plug in the battery and the power supply, start the laptop and check if the problem is gone.

    teeqeela: "I can't believe it! Same dell, same problem, same solution. Thanks man!"
    If that was for me, my pleasure.
    Noel Carboni: "I'd be curious to know whether you've found the reason it was happening"
    I'm curious about the reason, but not prepared to spend the time to find it; I don't think we'd learn enough from it to justify the time. Back pre-Windows pre-Internet I spent weeks painfully debugging. It's
    hugely more complicated now, the Internet finds most things quickly anyway, and the tedious tracing doesn't bring many useful insights. I can't give answers, I'll just repeat the facts - any proposed answer must address them. Some details in the numbered points
    I made a few messages back. The problem first manifested (for me, and I believe for others) some months after installing Win7 on Inspiron 1501 (specifically that machine). It's cleared by removing all power, and by a couple of software tricks (disable gadgets,
    registry hack). Once cleared by power removal, it stays clear for weeks (not months) then recurs (don't yet know how permanent other fixes will turn out to be). One thinks of things such as some bit in system memory that gets set somehow, and never reset until
    power is removed (it might be a memory location always alive and watching for a wake-on-lan or other wakeup event), which Win8 expects to find reset. But why the month's delay? Win7 (32- and 64-bit) works fine on Inspiron 1501, but is not officially supported,
    and some non-Dell drivers must be used; they work fine. I could go on till the cows come home, but I've got myself a usable machine, and told others about it, so that's it.

  • Zoom the images in asset library thumbnail preview column in display form

    I have a requirement is:
    i have an asset library with 1000 of images and on search of it in the results page, we customized to display the thumbnail preview of that image with title link which links to display form. in the search results on click of thumbnail image it will zoomin.
    we need to have the same functionality on display form also. how to achieve it?

    How are you doing this?
    If you delete in iPhoto and empty the iPhoto trash then all versions of the photo are gone
    If you use the finder to delete photos then you trash your iPhoto library and will ahve to start over
    As to faces - that is not an option so all iPhoto users have face thumbnails
    And it is very strongly recommended that you simply stay out of the iPhoto library - there are NO user servicable [parts in it and going into it endangers your photos and other data

  • Thumbnails & Preview filenames do not match Master filename

    Hi - can't find any threads regarding this...
    Basic problem is that Aperture is not renaming the Preview & Thumbnail filenames when it renames images on import - anyone else experiencing this problem?
    I have a managed Aperture Library (2.1.3). I rename my image files on import using the Import dialogue set to Custom Name & Counter and Apply to Master filename checked. However the Preview file, the Thumbnail file and the Finder folder holding the images do not get renamed.
    Since the Media Browser uses the Preview files rather than the Master files when importing images into other apps (eg. Pages or uploading to a blog) the files used all have the wrong names.
    For Instance:
    I have a canon image file named IMG1234.JPG.
    I import this file to Aperture and use the import dialogue to rename to Custom Name SUNSETNEVADA.JPG (with apply to Master Filename checked).
    In Aperture what I see in my project is SUNSETNEVADA.JPG as the Version Name and the Master filename - as expected.
    However the Thumbnail & Preview files are still called IMG1234.JPG - you can't see this directly from within Aperture you need to open Finder and drill down thru the Library package where you find that your Master file is called SUNSETNEVADA.JPG but it lives in a folder called IMG1234.JPG with a Thumbnail file called IMG1234.JPG and a Preview file called IMG1234.JPG.
    I then open Pages and open the Media Browser.
    I select Photos, and then my Aperture library, find my project and select SUNSETNEVADA.JPG.
    The file that gets imported into Pages is the preview file called IMG1234.JPG.
    The same happens in any situation where I use the Media Browser to browse the Apertuer library and import images, because the Media Browser always uses the Preview file.
    The only work around I have is to export images directly from Aperture and then browse the Finder to import them to other apps - avoiding the Media Browser and Preview files altogether.
    I have notified Apple Pro Support who claimed to be unaware of this error.
    If you have seen the same problem please notify Apple Support.
    Any thoughts or solutions welcome. Thanks

    I am seeing the same thing, as I have lost all my masters and can only get my pics by copying preview files, which all have the old names.

  • How do I change the thumbnail preview picture

    How do I change the thumbnail preview picture?  I've got a 3d model and I want a particular view to be the thumbnail picture as well as the default view.  I believe I've done that before but cannot figure out how I did it.

    I'm working with pages that are comprised only one picture of a 3d object (a table).  I really believe I was able to change the thumbnail to a particular point of view but can't remember how I did it.  It's been so long that I can't remember, but I'm pretty sure I was able to.
