if you save a .psd file, you get a nifty and great preview of the image in the icon that can be viewed in list or icon view in the Finder. it gives you an idea of what the image looks like in these Finder views without having to open the files. why is it that jpegs, gifs, pngs, bmps, etc don't have this ability? did not OS 9 do this? is there an app that changes default icon to a picture of the image? what about quicktime movies and swf files? is it possible to create a preview of them in icon view, perhaps in a future release of the OS? just wondering, mostly because I saw a co-worker running OS 9 with a folder in list view in the Finder and all the jpgs had big picture previews of what the image really looked like, but OS X only does it with PSD's.
