    I tried option+command+click photos app to repair, but still no luck.

    Any idea? :confused:

    Thanks in advance.

    This is exactly what I see after restoring computer from a Time Machine backup. As you say, repair doesn't seem to regenerate thumbnail, or provide an option to repair thumbnails.

    If you edit a photo, make a change and save it, its thumbnail will appear. Not much of a solution, though.

    I was able to select all pics and rotate clockwise, have it churn thru that process and then rotate counter-clockwise to return all the pics to normal. That got all the thumbnails back for pictures. No luck on the video so far except the export and import method. Though the import/export method doesn't work for slow-mo/time-lapse videos as it loses that feature.

    Just curious if anyone figured out how to get the thumbnails for the videos. Exporting/Importing is a very slow and tedious process.

    Same thing has been happening to me, mainly with photos from Photo Stream
