Thank you for your review
CocoThumbX has been discontinued
Email me when discounted: 
CocoThumbX creates and removes 128x128 Mac OS X icons for pictures and saves them into the resource fork, or save them to a separate folder. Just drag your files or folders onto the application icon or the drop place in CocoThumbX, it will start to create beautiful icons. CocoThumbX support nice shadows like iPhoto or Photoshop.

What's New

Version 3.1:
  • Google Video (gvi) support
  • Fixed crash at startup if the font "Futura" was not installed
  • Fixed problem that CocoThumbX does not quit automatically on slow machines
  • Fixed problem if current user has no write permissions to his own folder ~/Library/Services
  • CocoThumbX will show the message once, after that please copy the Service-tool included in the DMG to ~/Library/Services.


Mac OS X 10.4 or later, Quicktime 7 or later

I'm thankful to see that there are developers such as this that are providing thumbnail creator apps... but... why do the thumbnails for 'full image' preference appear blurry?

This never happened when I used QuickImageCM (no longer supported in SnowLeopard).

Tested on Leopard (v. X.5.8 - Intel) and it is working fine here. Many thanks. :)

Fantastic in every way, unfortunately I cannot get it to create Thumbnails for WMV files though I have Flip4Mac installed.

Still getting services error with 3.0.2. I *do* have a services folder in my user library, and there never has been a CocoThumbX service in there. I'd love to be able to get this to work, but it just won't. :(

But it would be great if the icons are more discernible.

Like movies with that vertical black bars with holes for example.

So the file extension would not be necessary to be on.

An Error Occured

Can not install or register the new CocoThumbX Service. Please go to ~/Library/Services and delete the CocoThumbX service manually.
Then restart CocoThumbX

on launch after updating from an older version. I don't have a ~/Library/Services folder on my Mac. Where is the service installed?

OSX 10.4.9

Simple workaround for that error:

• Manually create ~/Library/Services

When you relaunch CocoThumbX after that it'll copy CocoThumbXService.service to that folder.

Or download CocoThumbX 3.0.2
I have fixed this problem in the new version

I like this!

I just wish I had an option to save the icon thumbnail when you choose the Save Icns option.

That way you would not have to go back to CocoThumb and choose Add Thumbnail once again, on the just saved .Icns file.

This would replace Iconverter completely for me.
