No Photo Thumbnail Previews?

  southpaw 20:45 22 May 2007


I have Windows XP. At work I am able to open a file containing photos and when I choose THUMBNAIL view I can see a preview of the photos without needing to open each one to view.

At home it just shows a Thumbnail icon. How can I change this?

Also is there a way of printing out a still from a DVD (home video)?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the suggestion VoG but no luck.

I have no refresh thumbnail option and the icon is shown for every photo in any file so its not a conflict with any particular photo.

I ran that program and it hasn't worked.

There was no option box for JPEGs?

Anyone have any other ideas?

Are you on about the same computer that you use at work; and using it at home too like a laptop?

I don't know the answer to your 1st question, but you can capture a frame from a DVD using photo software - Photoshop Elements certainly does it and I suspect others will too.

No. These are two seperate PCs.

The one that only shows thumbnail icons is my home laptop.

Also thanks to marvin42 I will look into that.
