Something I forgot to add in the sub
Authored by: foo12 on Sep 07, '02 08:30:02PM

The icon previews apparently aren't cached, so they'll be regenerated each time you open the folder. With a decent drive (ATA66 7200 rpm) the time isn't too bad, but I can imagine Powerbook and iBook users "feeling" it a bit more with the slower, 5400 rpm drives necessitated by power constraints. One advantage over in-file or cached previews, like Rob mentions with pic2icon, is that the Finder previews will work on any mountable volume, including read-only --- it's really great for visually browsing a stock photo CD, tho QuickTime seems to bork on LAB color mode tiffs.

of course you could always get the shareware icondropper application which will generate icon previews of all your images
