Thumbnails generating empty image
Jul 31st, 2007 at 9:41am
 
When I run the Thumbnail creator, images are created with the correct file size, name and extension in the correct location but the images cannot be opened. No preview or thumbnails appear in Windows and opening the files in Photoshop produces an error.
A sample file is attached.

Hi,

I guess you forgot the attachment...
I believe you also recently send me an email, did you receive my reply?

Can you send me the original picture, the thumbnail that is created and the settings you used for the thumbnail plugin, please?
To get the settings, assumingt your task is called thumbs:

<task directory>\thumbs.config

<task directory>: press CTRL+9 inside the watchDirectory Control Center to explore this directory

Hi Gert,

I didn't get the e-mail unfortunately.
I've attached the config file as requested.

Thanks,
Mike

I've tried attaching the thumbnail but it generates an error both on this forum and in Outlook 2003.

perhaps you can ZIP it and send it directly to me (gert "at" watchdirectory.net).

I will look into this issue tomorrow, and I would like to have "your" thumbnail to investigate.

Attached the thumbnail that I created with your settings. It displays fine on my computer...
Note that I used the beta version ( http://www.watchdirectory.net/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1181799624 ), and there have been a few changes to the thumbnail plugin (I don't think it explains the problem you describe). I am still interested to see YOUR thumbnail, if you can zip it and send it to me...
