I am using 1GHz PB with 1GB memory running Panther (10.3.9) I have problems with Finder showing thumbnail previews in a folder of more than 50 JPEG image files. Finder is really slow in this and it takes about 7 minutes to view thumbnails of 200 images in a folder. In Finder, I nagivate and view windows in the icon mode (icon size: 128x128) and I tick "show icon preview" in the "view options". Even a low-end Wintel system with Windows XP can give me a preview of these in a snap and that's what I'm looking for. I have tried to index my HD and repair permission using Disk Utility but there is no improvement. Will Tiger makes things more speedy if I wish to view thumbnail of images using Finder? (I prefer not to use third-party software for such a simple task) It really embarrasses me everytime I have to go to a Celeron PC with Win XP to view a CD containing images taken by a digital camera using Windows Explorer I have read all the discussion threads at Apple website relating to this issue. But so far, there isn't a solution to that (yet). Does anyone here also experience the same problem?
