    Hi guys. I used my parents iMac (they just got it) for 4 or 5 hours today and I must say that I really love everything about it.

    However, there was one annoyance... Maybe its something I didn't see or couldn't figure out.

    As far as I could tell there was no image thumbnail preview in the Finder menu.

    I had 50 or so images imported into iPhoto. I had my gmail open, and I wanted to send 5 different photos. I had to go through several folders and open an image each time because I wasn't sure what image it was until I viewed it that way. In explorer (windows) I could simply view the .jpg files as thumbnail images just long enough so I could select the image I wanted to upload.

    Am I missing something here? Again, everything else was Grade A.

    Select Finder

    View > Show View Options (Command + J)

    Check "Show icon preview".

    Yeah, I complained about the lack of a thumbnail view in OS X after switching.
