windows 7 - adobe files - thumbnails preview - how?


#1

Yes,

maybe one within this awesome collection of artists who use Adobe software, know a way to enable the preview thumbnail in windows for the files created in Photoshop and Illustrator (and other adobe software if possible)

I’m desperate,

yes I know I can use Bridge , but I hate Bridge. We can debate why I think bridge is crap but this is not the point of the thread.

If someone know, please share the knowledge.

Specifically CS5 packet and Win 7 64bit

Thank You

Adobe needs to die!!! this is a evil attempt to make me use they’re file browser software.

I hate them

Maybe this :slight_smile: They claim it works with both 64 and 32 bit…

Not meaning to make any free commercial - but why not just get mac os x if you’re into this kind of stuff :stuck_out_tongue: ? http://cl.ly/0W0g051104380N2q142B

Also, let us know if you find a solution for that in win x64

well, I like to build myself the hardware. i usually get more power and control and a lower budget. For example, couple of months ago i build myself a six core 64 bit, 16 gb of ram, and a 1gb video card for less that 550 euro. If I would bought a similar version from apple I would have paid 4374 euro. Like :confused: what?

anyway I installed the trial for that psd codec and it works. So now I am absolutely sure that adobe are the biggest douche bags of the software companies, they could have made this work with no problem but they didn’t because they are evil. :frowning:

Yeah, they probably have 1000 directors arguing and not one single leader / visionary that guides the company.

PS: You can install Mac OS X on your custom built pc :stuck_out_tongue:

last time I checked it was not legally possible to do it. it involved using some modified installation dvd. Don’t know now if is possible.

ZoomIt, he’d need to have 32 bit, it doesn’t work with x64

argh… not relevant (delete my post :stuck_out_tongue: )

What does not work with 32 bits ?

Why not ? Apple does not prohibit it - as long as you buy the licence I see no illegality - http://lowendmac.com/ed/fox/09ff/hackintosh-legality.html

Let me tell you something. I always built my own computers, literally from scratch. I chose everything, sometimes even the type of screws I was going to use.

I said, those guys buying Macs have no idea what’s inside, nor can they customize it as they want. And that’s partially true.

However: You can get the best of the best in hardware, but the OS (yes, I mean Mac OS X) is so, but SO superior, that anything works super fast. The first time I used a Mac I couldn’t understand its system. You don’t have ‘installation processes’ or those ‘loading times’ as in Windows… yes I know, it sounds out-of-this-world, but it’s not.

And even so, you could still run Windows on a Mac if you so desire. But trust me, you will never get the power from a Mac Pro by building your own PC.

Sorry, had to let it all out :slight_smile:

Nothing beats assembling your own computer feeling :smiley:

Let’s rephrase that: Nothing beats running the smoothest graphics, rendering at amazing high-speeds and not waiting for anything to even install feeling :smiley:

I don’t know, when I wanted to this, more than six months ago, I wanted to install OS on a Samsung netbook that I had at the time. After I checked if the processor was compatible I looked around on how to install the OS but the process involved was quite abstract for that particular hardware that I had. Now off course, probably if one buy the license is ok, but I was talking about the installing process on a particular machine with some specific hardware, and on those blogs were I read about the steps involved they spoke about that modifying the software install was illegal. Now I did not actually tried so I may be wrong on this.

more than certainly my custom build pc is not that powerful, but the difference is enormous, maybe 5 to 10% less power. But the price beat everything. I only use those six core at 100% if I render something in a 3d application, or do some video convert/export. But that is not intensive work like 24/7, so the couple of minutes that it takes longer is not that big deal for my projects. Probably in an intensive work environment those mac pro will be invaluable, maybe for they’re stability and less crap installed comparing with the pc.

But then one should get a custom computer with a command line linux installed for maximum processing power.

Hello,

here is a very nice and powerful Windows Explorer Replacement Software. It has the ability to show all kind of files in Thumbnail-View Mode, .psd, .ai too. Altough it is commercial, but it is worth buying it. If not, you can use it with full functionality for 60 days.
