    It may be more of a windows hing than a photoshop thing.

    if i have a program open like photoshop or publisher and i want to
    open/insert a photo i open click OPEN and i get a popup of my folder full of photos on the desktop, but its always a list of the photos. is there anyway to have it open that photo folder with a thumbnail view as the defaut so i don't have to go change it to thumbnail every single time. i am editing hundreds of photos and it's a huge Pain I.T.A. to do this manually every time. thnx a pc win XP

    Are you using a PC or Mac? If using Windows OS, by saying "when I open the folder to find a folder" do you mean open a folder in Windows Explorer or from within Photoshop?

Your best bet is to use the built-in File Browser. It has 2 panes: 1 is a directory tree and the other is a thumbnail view of folder contents. I know Photoshop has this and would expect that Publisher has the same. So instead of going to File>Open, use the File Browser which is usually located near the top right-hand side of the toolbar within the application. Double-click a thumbnail to open the file.

There might be a special command within the application or a Windows registry setting that would enable a default thumbnail view in the Open dialog box, but I don't know of one off hand.

How do you delete photos from Sansa e200 MP3 Player?


If you go into Windows Media Player, you have to change the Library option from Music to Photos and THEN go into the Sync tab - should now display photos instead of music.

Alternatively, you can double-click My Computer, double-click the icon of the Sansa, and find the images or picture folder - you may have to change your usb mode to msc in order to view this folder (don't forget to change it back later, or not all of your files will show up when you want them to). ONLY delete image files - if you delete system files, your mp3 player will become unusable.

Or, you can follow the method reccomended by your manual - the full user's manual is available from Sanidsk's website:
Delete Photos and Video
The photos are stored in 2 locations on your Sansa…My Album and
Thumbnails. The instructions below for deleting photos and video from your
player were created using Windows XP with Windows Media Player 11.
To delete photos from your Sansa, please execute the following steps:
1) Connect your Sansa e200 to your computer
2) Select Open device to view files using Windows Explorer on initial
connection
3) Click the drive containing your photos
4) Click on the photo folder.
5) Highlight and delete the photos stored in My Computer\Sansa
e200\...\Photo\My Album and My Computer\Sansa
e200\...\Photo\thumbnail\My Album.

This will help.Good Luck.

Using a mac... have iphoto libraries with photos on external...can open the library but cannot do anything with the photos...just view them as small thumbnails.


You can send them-as attachments to emails. Put them into folders - but only as thumbnails. If you want to work on them, make them brighter, crop them, add text etc - you must have photo editing software - something like ~Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Photoshop Essentials. Your mac - brilliant as it might be - can';t do it on its own -it needs extra software to do extra jobs.

No Thumbnail video folder view


I was hoping to hear a quick registry fix but just bit the bullet and did a deep System Restore and all the updates that went with it. Works fine now but will never know what caused it. Still open to any and all info.
