No Option for "Macintosh Thumbnail" on Photoshop CC

  • Updated 5 years ago
On Photoshop CS4 there was an option in Preferences, File Handling called "Macintosh Thumbnail" along with "Windows Thumbnail" and it allowed Photoshop generate a new image thumbnail on my Mac that reflected the changes to the edited images. But for some reason on Photoshop CC there is only the option to select "Windows Thumbnail". So the problem is that when I finish editing an image it doesn't show up as a new image thumbnail in my Finder window. So it makes it hard for me to tell which images I've already edited and which ones haven't been edited.

Yes, and Apple has deprecated the resource fork, and had many problems trying to use the resource fork thumbnails - so at their suggestion, we removed the resource fork thumbnails from Photoshop.

The Finder window issue is another problem - either you don't have the finder set to extract thumbnails, or MacOS is having problems reading the thumbnails ( and it is supposed to read the embedded/Windows thumbnails) correctly (which seems to happen sporadically).

I understand! It still works with my version of CS4 I have installed as a back up. So I guess we'll see if anything changes in an update down the road.
