Can't Create Icon and Preview

Post by Buadhai » Tue Apr 24, 2018 7:36 am

2017 iMac Running OSX 10.13.4
GC 10.6

See the attached screenshot. I'd like to create icons for the photos that do not have them, but I can't figure out how to do it.

If I open the image and then: File > Convert & Modify > File > Create Icon/Preview

Nothing seems to happen.

I also tried doing this as a batch in Convert & Modify with the same result.

File permissions seem OK: -rwxr-xrwx@ 1 mnewman staff 242563 Dec 11 2010 CA135.jpg

What am I doing wrong?

I checked your e-mailed file.

The embedded icns resource contains all resolutions. Also, it is displayed here perfectly:

Here is a screenshot of the embedded icns resource:

Did you try a restart? Maybe the Finder cache hangs.

Did you enable this option in the Finder?

Thank you.

The original screenshot I posted was from PathFinder rather than the Finder, but both programs showed the same symptom on exactly the same set of files.

As you suggested, a restart fixed it for both Finder and PathFinder.

'Thanks again.
