Hi! Long ago in my 9.something days I had tons of images as JPEGS or TIFFs. On my new computer they are microscopic in the finder folders. I go to View / View Options and change the icon size, but they are still too small to be of use.

I discovered that I could take an individual jpeg, open up it's "get info" window, and simply delete the preview image in the upper left corner. I guess this allows OSX to remake the image for the jpeg in the finder, and then it's bigger.

My question is; is there any bulk way to do this? I've looked around Automater and couldn't find any thing that quickly changes a bunch of files' preview or finder image.
QUOTE Thanks

Sorry, it was actually in the Automator. In case anyone else has prob, it's just called "Add Thumbnail Icon to Image Files".
QUOTE Thanks
