This just started about a week ago. I have been handling photos for years but just started experiencing this issue. The first time I experienced this was when I opened an image from an email. In the mail, I could see the photo, but when downloaded to view as thumbnail, it will be okay, but when opened with Windows Image viewer, Photodraw, or Photoshop 7, the image will be about 98 percent grayed up form bottom to top. I took some photos which I could see in my camera, in my computer as thumbnail, but when opened, it will be grayed. What is this reason?
After downloading files from my camera, a file is automatically created - "Thumbs.db". What is this for and from where? It is usually "Read-Only" and I tend to remove the file in the folder. Would it be the reason for my grayed images? But why do I get this read-only file? Is this a system file?
