Solution to Mac OSX/PS7 icon problem - Adobe Photoshop Mac CS, CS2 & CS3

    This workaround was provided to me, and it solves the problem, at least for me:

    "Why don't you save the files without using PS's 'image preview' option? It's a superfluous thing on Mac OS X anyway. Actually, it's worse than superfluous: PS creates a bitmap thumbnail; Mac OS X will create a fully anti-aliased thumbnail on-the-fly with live icon resizing/anti-aliasing capability.

    Turn it off and forget about it.

    You just need to set the view options for the folder you intend to save the image files in. Open the folder (or just click on the Desktop, if that's the one you're concerned about), pull down the View menu, and go to Show View Options. Check "Show Icon Preview."

    This works perfectly for me, hope it does for you!

    1) it's not superfluous, OS X can't read many of the file formats that Photoshop writes

    2) No, OS X takes quite a while to create those thumbnails and applications are supposed to save the thumbnail when saving the doent.

    3) Even then, the icons can get ed up -- you're seeing a known bug in OS X.
