    I am running Tiger and I don’t know if I am being thick but my images thumbnail in Finder just show a white square with the file type, Tiff, Jpeg, Raw unless I have saved them in Photoshop, then they are actual thumbnails of my images. Is it possible for them all to show as proper thumbnails as soon as I import them from my CF cards?

    You will probably have to in icon mode get your Show view options (apple + J) and turn on Show Icon Preview since most files don't include a thumbnail image. Photoshop however by default i believe auto generates a thumbnail (really a bunch of resources not just thumbnails) which in-turn becomes the icon.

    You can also right click on the open folder and select " Show view options " then select " show icon preview " .:D
