Resources – PSD thumbnails in Explorer

June 27, 2012 by Andreas in Blog & News, Resources & Links

Windows users are used to work with the thumbnails view of the items in their folders. However, many may be annoyed by the fact that there are quite some file extensions that cannot be viewed as thumbnails in Explorer, not even with the current Windows 7. If we are talking about some exotic file format you hardly ever use, you may not bother much, but anyone using Photoshop, will have missed the ability to preview a PSD file right straight away in Explorer. Adobe offers Bridge for viewing PSD files and camera RAW files, but some of us may not like this application for different reasons. Luckily there is a free solution for this, which does not only allow for previews of PSD files but also of many other formats including numerous camera RAW file types. The solution is called SAGE THUMBS and it is available for free to download e.g. from Google. It should work with Windows XP/2003/Vista/2008/7 32/64-bit versions. Don’t blame me if it does not work for you, but for me it worked all well and I would not want to miss it now.
