Where a file format is not properly recognized, Photo Mechanic will attempt to retrieve any embedded tiff/jpg previews. In many cases, such as with digital backs from Phase One, the resulting thumbnail will be very small. If the Enlarge photos to fit preview and slide show option is set in Preferences > Preview, then Photo Mechanic will enlarge this preview to fill the window and the image may look "pixellated."

Some file formats may need QuickTime from Apple to be installed. These formats are GIF, PICT, BMP and TGA. All movie files need QuickTime to be displayed as thumbs. Macs should have QuickTime already installed, so this applies to Windows computers only.
