My Picture folder won't show thumbnail of my real picture

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by skinnyboywolfie, Mar 10, 2007.

  1. I've used picassa to transfer some pictures from my digital camera,
    and from my old laptop, running xp, it would show the actual picture
    in either a small icon or list or whatever view you choose. But in my
    vista setting, I can't figure out how to make my actual picture show.
    It's only showing a a stock pic . Help??

    In your Pictures folder (or any folder) click the Organize button and choose
    Folders and Search Options. Click the View tab and make sure "Always show
    icons, never thumbnails" isn't selected. Then click OK. You should get
    thumbnails for most pictures.

    If you still don't get thumbnails, make sure the pictures are JPEGs or some
    other format for which Vista can show thumbnails.

    thumbnails thing, and my pic are in jpeg format. it's still just
