In the preview pane to the right it displays images as if a layer of a solid colour has just been thrown over the majority of it. It seems as though it just decides to stop loading the image and use a colour available in it to fill in the rest. The image itself is fine, it's just the way it's being displayed. The only way I have been able to get around this is to open up the file in Paint and save it, which doesn't always work. It's tedious to keep doing this and I was wondering if there was something I could try and do to fix the problem. 

 

I do have OldNewExplorer installed [to allow the details pane to show up at the bottom], however I uninstalled it and still have this issue. 

 

Attached is a file that visualizes the problem that I am having [the selected image is the one displayed on the left in the preview pane], and as you can see the lower half is coloured out.

What program are you referring to?

I'm wondering the same thing.

What is OldNewExplorer?

 

On another note, the only time that I've seen something similar to what you have in your screenshot, is either when the data is corrupt (in this case, the pictures), or when a weak computer doesn't have the power to fully show the preview.

When I say a weak machine, that would include more powerful machines that are so full of krap, that they are running slow like a weak machine.


All is well in Paradise.

I am running Windows 8.1 with 6GB RAM on a Lenovo and plenty of space. OldNewExplorer is a tool that modifies windows 8 to be more like windows 7.

Once again, what program are you referring to?
