    S3 pics show up on computer as icon not thumbnail

    When I plug the phone into my computer and open up the files for pics, I only get icons, and not thumbnails. Seen a couple of postings about this, but no solutions, other than moving the pic folder to the computer and working with them from there. Is there any solution to getting them to open up as thumbnails? This would seem like a no-brainer.

    Re: S3 pics show up on computer as icon not thumbnail

    Hopefully this will be fixed in a future update. I'm pretty disappointed myself that there's no way to view a thumbnail of your pics while connected to your pc.

    I spoke to a tech at Samsung, who told me that the thumbnail feature was available until the current update, which eliminated the ability to connect the phone as a USB Drive. He foolishly suggested that the easiest way to view them is to move them to a folder in your computer, which would allow the thumbnail viewing. He did not indicate they had any intention of re-implimenting this feature, which really ticked me off. Here I was, praising how great the S3 is over the iPhone, and then discover that this feature, standard in all other phone/cameras, is not available. Not a deal breaker, but not good. Not good at all. I am aware there are workarounds to this, but it involves a lot of things that I don't understand and should not have to do to get a feature that should be there to begin with.
