Building Thumbnails

Post by law251 » 10 Mar 21 20:25

I'm evaluating PSU and so far so good except for one recurring issue, which is that it gets stuck building thumbnails:

I took a look at the files in Photo Mechanic and I can't see anything wrong with them and if you click on the 'X' PSU just tries to rebuild the same thumbnail again. Is there a solution to this problem? Also, it might be an idea to have some way of stopping the attempted build rather than closing the whole app.

First of all, a warm welcome to the forum.

Thumbs should be built only once. Can you try running Tools -> Build Missing Thumbs and Previews from the upper left corner hamburger menu. That will check if there are files in the catalog without thumbs and if needed build them. After running that and reselecting this feature, you should net get any thumbs to be built anymore.

Of some of your files refuse to build, would it then be possible to send me one (or a couple) of these files so that I can check them out here? Best to upload them to some file sharing or cloud drive and send a download link to
