The Adobe Originals Silver Anniversary Story: A typographic revolution begins

This is the first in a series of articles from Tamye Riggs, a longtime lover of type who is working with us to celebrate the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Adobe Originals type program. This post sets the scene, taking us back to the very early days of digital typography. Typography is the art and technique of arranging type in order to make the language it forms most appealing to transparent learning and recognition. Excerpted from Wikipedia’s entry on Typography The history of typography is a long and storied affair. Since the eleventh-century invention of movable type in East Asia and the Gutenberg revolution in mid-fifteenth-century Europe, constant innovations have been made, with various methods of typesetting and printing falling in and …

Adobe Photoshop 6 & 7 are better than Photoshop CS and CS2? What? Huh?

Adobe Photoshop 6 and 7 are better than Photoshop CS and CS2? What? Huh?

Well not really, but one thing that version 6 and 7 did have, but was eliminated from CS and CS2, is the ability for Windows XP to display thumbnails of PSD images.

Since I had installed CS, and subsequently CS2, I noticed that I could no longer get thumbnail images to appear in Windows XP. I recently had a bit of time and tracked down the issue. Apparently, some people have had trouble with the thumbnail functionality so Adobe removed that feature. I have not had any real trouble with it. So I found out how to fix it.

Here is how to restore the thumbnail functionality.
Download the thumbfix.exe or thumbfix.zip file from my web site and extract the files to a new folder.
Copy the “psicon.dll” file to the C:\Program Files\Common Files\AdobeShell folder.
Once that is done, double click on the “ThumbsForCS2.reg” file if you are running CS2 or the “ThumbsForCS.reg” file if you are running CS. This will prompt you with a dialog box similar to the following:

“Are you sure you want to add the information in ThumbsForCS2.reg to the registry?”

Click “Yes”

You should see the following dialog:

“Information in ThumbsForCS2.reg has been successfully entered into the registry.”

Click Ok.

This .reg file tells Windows how to use the psicon.dll file.

You should now have Thumbnails once again!
