    Pictures in the preview are stripped and will not change?


    Windows 8.1 pictures are stripped in the small preview so i can't see what i'm opening until i've opened it. It is fine once it is open just when it is smaller?

    Hello Rrazzaq, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    These would be thumbnail previews of these images, so see if resetting the thumbnail cache may be able to help.

    This did not help, all the pictures are all still stripped?

    @rrazzaq,

    Are these TIFF image files by chance? If so, there was a KB2459492 hotfix for this in Windows 7, but not sure about Windows 8.

    I suppose that you could open an image in Paint and save it as a .jpg to see how it look afterwards.

    How do they look in the preview pane when selected?

    What happens if you open a picture in paint and save it.

    What is the image viewer you're using there?

Most of my pictures do not show up fully in the preview pane. Sometimes they show up completely, but usually they only load a sliver of the picture and the rest of the preview is a solid color.
