TGA / PSD thumbnails in Vista 64 Explorer?
« on: February 26, 2009, 12:54:43 PM »
See title. PNG files have visual thumbnails but tga nad psd do not.

Loads of solutions - but not for 64bit vista. Any ideas?

I just register only to show you what I did to show thumbnails in vista 64 (tga, psd, an many others)

First Step:
----------
Download this file:
http://www.uproar-in...urThumbnail-v1.0.exe
or
http://prdownloads.s...umbView_Lite_1.0.exe

Second Step: (No needed on Windows XP but is neccesary on Vista)
-------------
Create a shortcut on your desktop with this info:
%SYSTEMROOT%\SysWOW64\explorer.exe /seperate, /select, c:

After that the explorer will open your C root, you can change the path to point to your Tga files for example, whatever you do from now on you could see your images inside windows explorer.

I hope this help you ..., for me work like a charm ...

Cheers ...  8)

Sounds good but SysWOW64 does not exist on my vista 64 system.
However it seems it works now without having to do that (first link). Fantastic info thank you so much I looked all over the net for days.

Check out the FastPictureViewer WIC Codec Pack, it contains 32 and 64-bit WIC-enabled decoders for Windows 7 and Vista and provides TGA thumbnails, preview and metadata search integration for Explorer and Photo Gallery, in addition to providing TGA support to all WPF and WIC-enabled applications from XP SP3 and up.

For PSD a possible solution is described here: http://axelriet.blog...ails-in-windows.html

By the way, the WIC codec pack described above now supports raw formats from 12 camera manufacturers, covering about 300 camera models.
