Currently Being ModeratedOct 29, 2007 7:20 PM (in response to Huub Toussaint)I just upgraded to Leopard and cannot view about half of my .jpgs in Preview or coverflow as well.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 29, 2007 11:40 PM (in response to BretKallstrom)Do you work with Adobe lightroom?
(I'm trying to pinpoint the possible problem...)iMac 24 2.8 GHZ 3GB 500GB, Mac OS X (10.5)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 30, 2007 4:43 AM (in response to Huub Toussaint)No, I don't use Adobe lightroom. I was able to view my .jpgs in QuickTime. I was looking forward to the CoverFlow because it's a wonderful feature but now am unable to use it (actually I can use it but it makes the pictures display as a single line horizontal or vertical, depending on the orientation the picture.) Thumbnail view works fine. Spotlight displays the thumbnail.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 30, 2007 5:28 AM (in response to BretKallstrom)ok, so we can remove lightroom from the list of possible causesiMac 24 2.8 GHZ 3GB 500GB, Mac OS X (10.5)
Currently Being ModeratedOct 30, 2007 5:53 AM (in response to BretKallstrom)However.....
in the following thread:
it is noted that:
"@chipper072: Try to make any changes in a JPG file inside of Lightorrm 1.2 and save metadata into JPG file. After that you'll see, that you can not preview these files in Finder, Preview or any other Apple Application.
So don't save any XMP/EXIF Metadata into a JPG file in Lightroom 1.2 otherwise you'll not able to use these files outside of Lightroom 1.2 "iMac 24 2.8 GHZ 3GB 500GB, Mac OS X (10.5)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 2, 2007 7:27 PM (in response to Huub Toussaint)So what now ? JPG supports writing this info. Photoshop can read it. Lightroom can read it. Bridge can read it. Do we know if Apple is working on a fix ?
Currently Being ModeratedNov 2, 2007 8:16 PM (in response to dakitty)This is becoming a commonly known issue. As far as I know Apple has made no mention of a fix but I'm sure they are just waiting it out so that they can handle all the bugs at once, more or less. Adobe has acknowledge that Lightroom is not fully compatible with Leopard so use it with caution.
I know you aren't using it (Lightroom) as you've said. I think the whole thing with Leopard not being able to open jpegs is because of the way any meta data is written by any program. It is a shame, 2 and a half years to develop and something as simple as opening jpegs crashes the finder. Scary.Power Mac G5, Dual 2's, Mac OS X (10.4.8), My brain tells my fingers what to type. It's not the computers fault.
Currently Being ModeratedNov 2, 2007 9:29 PM (in response to Huub Toussaint)same problem here. check out these threads sharing your problem....

Currently Being ModeratedNov 5, 2007 4:30 PM (in response to Huub Toussaint)It happens to me too: the finder crashes when I try to see the info window on certain jpegs, or when I try to change the name of the files. Those are .jps images I created using Photoshop. Any suggestions?MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 7, 2007 9:51 AM (in response to svelasco)I'm having the same problem as you all describe. I guess that's what we get for coming into Leopard so fast. I think I'll go back to 10.4 and wait a few months.MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 16, 2007 10:35 AM (in response to Huub Toussaint)Adobe just released LIGHTROOM update 1.3. The upgrade didn't solve my problems with this issue! It's now more a fact than ever that APPLE will have to deal with this issue. That's if they want too!
And seeing Apple just released an update to LEOPARD which didn't resolve the issue we may be stuck with this problem for awhile ;(Mac Pro 2.66GHz Dual-core, Mac OS X (10.5), 4GB / ATI X1900 XT
Currently Being ModeratedNov 30, 2007 2:09 AM (in response to J Deschamps)My problem is similar.
Create a file in Illustrator CS3
Open File in Photoshop CS3
Save File as JPEG
- Quicklook - Crashes Finder
- Get info - Crashes Finder
- Drag into Mail - nothing happens
- Open in Preview - nothing happens
- Open in Photoshop - all ok
Workaround - Open file in photoshop and Copy and paste into a new document.
Guess that strips out some Metadata.
This is also what caused a Numbers.app file from opening - the document had a jpeg imported. Solved by showing package contents on the numbers file and deleting the offending jpeg.
This is reproducible on 10.5, 10.5.1, Intel and PPC systems.
Currently Being ModeratedDec 14, 2007 7:31 AM (in response to Huub Toussaint)Is there an update for the issue yet? I still can't view my pics (mostly cell phone pics) in CoverFlow or Preview.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.1)
