PSD thumbnail

Recommended Posts

Hello Paint.net


Any chance of creating a Paint.net icon for thumbnails the same way that Photoshop does?


See Screenshot 01 of a folder containing two documents:

  • homer.png
  • homer.pdn

It is not immediately obvious which one is my pdn file and which is my png.


Whereas see Screenshot 02 of a folder containing two documents:

  • homer.png
  • homer.psd

There is no confusion here which one is my psd file and which is my png.


It's a small irritation of mine. Would be great if you'd fix it.

Instead of no thumbnail at all, a better solution would be to have Windows Explorer use an overlay on the thumbnail.


For example, here are the overlays for VLC and SumatraPDF:



Hmm, not a bad idea. I've filed a bug to track this. Thanks!

Ooohhh, I absolutely love this idea!   I use Red's method to show the file extensions, always.  But I still have to get my face up close to the screen sometimes to see which one I'm picking.


They both start with 'P'!  Ha!   The eyes aren't what they used to be.  Having the PDN logo or something similar would be great.   Def looking into!
