Is thumbnail of photo upated as well?
Authored by: moritzh on Feb 10, '06 12:30:13PM
Very nice description, thank you. A short question:
Once you've edited the picture to your satisfaction, you then save a .jpg version of the file. In particular, you want to save a version "over the top of" (i.e., replacing, using the same name as) iPhoto's modified version (NOT the original).
Will iPhoto realize that you are replacing the photo and update the thumbnail? Or does it get confused by this procedure? I assume not, since you seem to get along with this well. Sorry, I don't have iPhoto '06 yet, so I can't test myself.
I can't afford Photoshop or iView Media Pro
Neither can I. But I am wondering: If you can't afford it, how come you use it as an exteral editor? ;-)

The answer seems to be yes, in '06 -- though I just got '06 so I haven't tested extensively. In '05, the "thumbnail flickering" I described above is likely the symptom of the thumbnail not updating. As I described, the workaround in '05 (and presumably in '06, if there's a problem) is to do a "dummy" external edit by choosing "edit in external editor" from the menu, then just closing the file immediately when it opens in Photoshop.

D'oh! Typo. I meant "I can't afford Aperture or iView Media Pro".
