    Thumbnails
    Hello everyone

    I have a nagging problem with thumbnails. When i save an image from the internet, the thumbnail displays the file type on the actual thumbnail. This does not happen when i save an image that is altered in photoshop. See attached image :



    The thumbnail for the Die-Hard poster altered in photoshop does not display any text whereas the thumbnail for the A-Team poster saved directly from the web does display the text. I've tried different web browsers and saving to different formats but all downloaded images still display the text.
    Does anyone have any ideas as to what is causing this and have a fix for it please?

    Thanks in advance

    I'm not sure what causes this, but I do know that this only show's up on the thumbnail, not the actual image.
    I wouldn't worry to much about it if I were you
    Probably just they way apple codes internet download opposed to saved the download's to differentiate between file types.

    As ThatGuy posted, it will be just on the Thumbnail, and to check double click and it will open In Preview and you will see that its not on the image.
    I just tried this by right clicking the image then Download Image and it hasn't happened with my thumbnail, i get a clean image with nothing.

    What have you downloaded lately ?? Have you ran any AppleScripts/Automator Workflows ??

    What OS are you running and on what Mac ??

    I know it only appears on the thumbnail, i just find it annoying that its there. I'm thinking its an apple script too but i haven't downloaded one that i know of, unless it was part of a package i downloaded when i was trying something out using python. where would i find where the scripts are installed?

    Use Spotlight/Finder and search for .Applescript or .scpt and see what comes up, or .app as some Applecripts are saved as Applications.
    I did just found a folder at ~/Library/ and it was called Application Scripts, but i just used Spotlight and showed all my .scpt i have on my Mac.

    HTH

    Cheers

    thanks for the suggestion, but i don't have a folder called Application scripts and spotlight didn't really find anything
    i did find a folder called Scripts but i've no idea what shouldn't be in there, so not sure if this is the right place to be looking
