Finder window view settings lost
Authored by: haighy on Nov 27, '02 08:47:16AM
I occasionally get that chunky preview problem too, when going through old System 9 images. One way to fix it is by zapping the resource fork, where the low-res icon is being stored. The Finder then automatically generates a nice icon (if it's in a common image format, such as JPEG or TIFF).

You can use Grim Ripper to delete the resource fork. Like the documentation says though: it can be destructive if you don't know what you're doing, so perhaps best to try it on a copied file first.

Wins Scariest Icon award too.
