MacBook doesn't show image preview?

1 year 9 months ago #710666 by Jeff Scott
My MacBook doesn't show the image previews any more when I pull up folders with images in them.  What could be the cause of this?  Just to be clear, its the RAW files that aren't showing previews like they used to. 

Kind of lost here.  Can you help me please?

From my experience ,  but there could be other causes ,  it's just a matter of waiting a while .  Eventually they show if you wait .
How long do you wait  for them to show : seconds , minutes ,  hours ?  
How many other files and folders do you have that  you don't really need on your laptop anymore ,  that  you could archive onto an external drive or media ?  My quite recent model mac still has about 80% storage space and  it's starting to be slow on showing image preview thumbnails .  I  frequently archive  my no longer immediately needed folders &files to CD and external drive .  And that often helps .

Did you install any recent software OR have an update that needs to be done from Apple?

Did you try the space bar?

An other option is — with the file selected — to press "Com + I" to
open the info window and select "Preview app" in the dropdown.
