Stupid Mac Trick of the Day

by Erica Sadun

In OS X Tiger, when a picture file doesn't have a proper Desktop thumbnail, I rename it. This makes the Finder update the file and add the thumbnail. Then I undo. The picture keeps the thumbnail but reverts to its original name.

nice - now, what's the trick for when there is no thumbnail in the list view? renaming didn't work.

You could also use Quckimage CM. In my opinion a must-have if you deal with graphics:
