Windows 7: Psp images

Well I must admit, I'm now totally at a loss.
I got my mate to send me a *.pspimage file made with X3. I dropped it on my desktop and I could see it straight away with the PSP Thumbnail Handler (the free one).

You can change the background color of Irfanview this way:
Open Irfanview. Click "Options" then "Poperties and Settings" at the bottom of that screen is "Main Window Color" Click "Choose2 to the bight of the black bar and you can have whatever color you wish for the background.

All i want to do is view my images within my folders with out having any other programs to use to view them.

Sorry not been on for a bit, had other issues to sort out
Hi Anita
I think you should find that all of the viewers suggested here do work, it's just a matter of choosing the one that suits you best. Personally I use Irfanview as with its add ons there are very few images either movie of still that it wont view.
I still think the problem here is with the original files that were downloaded. I have put a small PSP up on my host and would ask that you , plus Lynda and anyone one else who has this problem to download the image save it to your picture folder and see if that shows as a thumnail in your Windows Explorer.
The link is here:

This way we can isolate at least one possible cause. I think that is the only way to get to the bottom of the problem!

Hi Anita
That's very good. So this proves that it is the original files causing the problem. If I send you my email address via the PM would you like to send me just two of your files that don't show up. I can then analyse them to see if we can cure the problem permanently. Have just sent you a PM

Sounds like the psp files embedded thumbnails have either got messed up or have a compatibility issue with Win 7 that they didn't have with XP

Sorry about the delay, have been out all day photographing rescued horses. There are 65 of them and everyone says never work with children or animals. Tiring but great fun!
Back to the PSP problem.
What I have found is that Windows 7 does not render a number of image formats as well as XP did. One instance is that it does not show animated gifs. There is a long thread on this subject here on this Forum.
The same is true for some of the PSP formats of which there are many. One of the images that Anita sent me had the file extension PSP but it had been saved under the "PSP Animation Shop" format. The other one had been saved as a "PSPimage" That's the actual file extension. One would think that just changing that extension to .PSP should solve the problem but it does not. Win 7 WE does not recognise the thumbnail content. It only recognises and shows the thumnails of files saved with the choice under the save as drop down window "PSPIMAGE" but you need to manually insert ".PSP" and not let is save as a file extension of ".PSPIMAGE"
I have tried the batch conversion facility in Irfanview but this does not solve the problem. I think the resave must be done in Photoshop Pro. I see that there is a batch conversion facility there but haven't had a chance to try that. I think the answer is to resave each individual image when they are downloaded.
So regretably the soltion is a bit long winded but I can't see an alternative. I suppose a Win 7 patch might be a possibilty but I reckon we will have to wait for Win 8 to see if that solves it.
