    I have tons of photos on my mac. Some of them have blurred images when in thumbnail view and the upper right hand corner of the thumbnail has a bent edge on it. If I open get info there is a little thumbnail in the upper left hand corner of the get info box. If I click on that image and press delete and close the get info box the thumbnail is now fixed.

    Why do I have to do this to some images?

    I have been looking around for some info on this but have come up empty. How do I fix all my thousands of images without opening each one with get info and deleting the icon? Does it have to do with exif data? How do I fix this?

    I am in desperation over this.

    The thumbnail was generated by whatever program you saved those photos through. Only once you delete those does OS X generate its own thumbnails. Download graphicconverter and run a batch to remove them all. And change the thumbnail prefs in the image app that you've been using that caused the problem in the first place.

    Graphic converter didn't help but I downloaded CocoThumbX and it fixed them all. Now to remove the white frame that os x shows around all the thumbnails it generates. How can that be done?
