Show item info, missing previews, and folder backgrounds
Authored by: samrod on Dec 01, '02 07:28:03AM

Using "Show item info" to display image dimensions under the filename is very helpful also. But the info displays only for some images and not others. I've saved out several JPEGs from Photoshop using the same settings, and for some the dimensions were displayed while not for others. I still haven't figured out why, but Apple needs to address this issue. Specially since publishing and film/video are its primary markets. The info displays intermittently for QT files as well.

And while I'm on the subject of intermittent functionality, the image previews don't always display for all images either. And those same images who don't display a preview icon, don't display a preview in column view, and can't be used as folder backgrounds either.

My only other feature request would be that Finder text used for filenames adjust intelligently to provide enough contrast with the background. Text on the desktop is white while text in folders is black. This assumes most desktop images are dark while most folder backgrounds are light. Well I'd like to have solid black or even dark images as backgrounds for some folders, but I can't because the filenames would disappear.
