Sorry to say it doesn't always show PSD thumbnails on my Windows 7 64-bit. Sometimes it works, but mostly I still get the old blue PSD thumbnails. Guess I'll have to stay with FS Image Viewer which still works fine.

Sage thumbs works for the most part. I am running Win7 x64. I have noticed sometimes a few of the thumbs dont show up.

I am tired of people suggesting pay software for this issue. We shouldn't have to pay 20 bucks to see thumbnails in explorer.

Couldn't agree more Bro. Guess we have the monopolists over at Microsoft to blame for that. Surely they could spend a few hours to add thumbnails for Photoshop software which is in such widespread use.

Ok everyone, SageThumbs is the way to go. It works on EVERY PSD. In order to get it to work with larger psds you just have to go into the options and increase the maximum size. For example I had a few psds over 10 mbs that were not showing thumbnails, after increasing the limit to 50 mb, it works flawless on every PSD.

Its FREE and you don't have to pay no stinking 20 bucks. Thank the developers for working on this, and if you can contribute a small donation on there page.

PS thanks Microsoft for not providing key functionality to every designer out there who uses windows. Its business practices like this, that make users flock to OSX.

7 32bit
error code 0x80070005

I followed the instructions from the post by b33z but kept getting error code 0x80070005.

I found the reason - I wasn't running the command from the Command Prompt with Administrator Priviledges.
All I had to do was right click on the command prompt and run as Administrator and it all work!

Thanks very much!

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit. and Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.

Hi everyone, as you'll see this is my first post, so please be gentle with me.

I have Photoshop CS3 installed on my Win 7 Home Edition Laptop and randomly one day my plain blue icons changed to images (thumbnails) I dont remember installing anything specific to make this happen, it just started. I thought it was a windows update or something.

Recently i rebuilt my laptop as she started to get a little too slow in her old age. But guess what, i now have the blue icons back and cant get the thumbs to work again.

I know this dont help, but i never did any of the things suggested in previous posts to make mine start showing thumbs, but I obviously did something. It is really annoying as i have hundreds of PSD files and have to open them to see what it is. Was awesome when i had an image to id the file i wanted to work on.

I'd install SageThumbs if I were you ( Just remember to take cloves' advice and go to the options to increase the 'Maximum Size of Image File" to something that is big enough to cover the largest of your .PSD files. You'll soon have all your .psds showing up as thumbnails and it won't cost you diddly squat.

The registry hack suggested above did not work for me but the SageThumbs software did work. So thank you for suggesting it. I would recommend that others just use SageThumbs to begin with and save the hassle of messing with the registry and dll file.

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7600

there is a software called icaros that shows thumbnails of video files , it can be configured to add file extensions.
i already have sage thumbs installed and i wondered if the icaros software could be used to add .PSD to it .
here is the download page, if anyone who cares to try it and see let me know .thanks.

Icaros is thumbnailing software. Upon installation, and with 1st use of the application, if you simple click 'Activate Icaros'. it will default to thumbnailing MKV's (10bit files too) and OGM files. It is capable of thumbnailing just about any file by adding its extension(s) to the optional filetypes box and re-activating Icaros. The only filetype not handled by Icaros is Realmedia files.

Mystic thumbs - been using this all along in conjunction with ghostscript (which install automatically with mysticthumbs.

I use PS, AI, FW, Maya, Visio, and PDFs, word & text files, EPSs and a bunch of other graphics stuff as part of my daily workflow... Mystic Thumbs shows them all as high quality previews even as extra large icons.

It was about 12 I think, updated fairly regularly, and good support direct from the dev - well worth it

I'm in no way associated with the developer btw
