As I begin assembling the picture package for my J-term trip to Israel and Palestine, I’ve run into a problem: with high-end digital cameras, the JPEG-compressed image files are larger than 5 MB, and Nautilus (the default Ubuntu file manager) won’t create thumbnails for pictures that size.
The solution: a bit of configuration in
gconf-editor. Navigate to key
/apps/nautilus/preferences and increase the size of
thumbnail_limit to something more reasonable for modern cameras.
