Windows 7: Thumbnails of transparent images don't show correctly.

01 Jul 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1
Thumbnails of transparent images don't show correctly.

I have this problem for a few hours, If I make a completely transparent image (in photoshop for example) its thumbnail will display a black or white square, but in the picture viewer of windows images are display correctly, is this normal?:

Edit: ico images work correctly, but no png or gif.

Totally transparent appear black, if it's a partial transparency it's fine I suppose it's purposely because otherwise the icon would be invisible and would be annoying

Well..., I had not realized until now that that was normal xD , I was testing a program made for executables and making a few icons to test If they were properly displayed injected into an exe.

Ok, thanks for the help.
