    Photo Thumbnails


    Hi All

    Can anyone help me get my thumbnail pictures back please. I use for my photo editing Affinity and when I open a folder to download a photo all the thumbnails have the affinity logo not a picture. I did email affinity who said it is a windows problem.

    I have tried following the tutorials on here but I do not seem to have most of the options detailed and unticking what I have made no difference. I have W10 on my laptop and it used to show photos. It seems to be an issue with raw files as some jpegs show as pictures.

    Help will be appreciated

    Cheers Edward

    I haven't gotten Affinity yet, still use PagePlus. Anyway, showing a program's icon on the files indicates which program they are associated with, particularly in the Details view. I have images associated with the older Windows Photo Viewer and get the thumbnails when using the View, icon sizes. I have to be careful about that as I have backups of clients' computers or have their drive in a dock and may not want my wife see what I'm dealing with.

    About RAW images, they usually are quite large in file size and may not always show, can be an issue with how much RAM/Random Access Memory a computer has. Your My Computer gives zero information about that. Examples of that would be a RAW image on the camera being 20MB while the resultant .jpg would be 2MB to 6MB, RAW files the memory card rather quickly, went through that with a local photographer. RAW does allow larger prints without loss.

    Size really has nothing to do with whether RAW are files shown in Explorer or not, it's more about a suitable codec. My Nikon NEF (RAW) Files from my Nikon D850 camera are approximately 92meg in size, and they do show up in Explorer as thumbnails. That said, Nikon does provides a RAW (NEF) codec for them to be seen.

    With that, the OP might look to see if their camera manufacture provides such a codec to allow them to view the files in Explorer.

    My desktop PC has 32gig of memory, but the file wills also render on my Asus laptop with 4gig of memory. How fast depends on how many files it has to render.

    I would have thought the Affinity program would have a plug-in for that...,

    if not, install the extension from the Store...

    RAW files allow much more control over image editing than does a JPG original. RAW files need a suitable editing program, for example Adobe Lightroom or Photoshop.
