Embrilliance Thumbnailer (Downloadable)

Welcome to Thumbnailer!

Thumbnailer lets you preview embroidery files while browsing folders in your computer! Thumbnailer creates icons for designs so your operating system can show them to you in the File Manager or Finder folders directly without opening the files.

Thumbnailer runs on Intel Mac OSX 10.5+ (*see note at bottom of page) and Windows XP (sp2 32-bit) up to and including Win-10, both 32 and 64 bit.

How do I set up Thumbnailer?

Once you run the installer, there’s only one step. Once the Control Panel pops up, select the file types for which you want the icons to appear as preview images in your File Explorer or Finder. Once you click ‘OK!’, you will not need to open the program again unless you choose to change the file types for which Thumbnailer will create preview icons.

Select the file types for which you want graphical icons, click OK and you are set!

How do I use Thumbnailer?

Once it’s installed, open any folder in File Explorer (Windows? or Finder (Mac) and set your view to Icons or Thumbnails and “Voila!” You’ll see your embroidery designs directly in the folder without opening them.

No other software is required! Nothing to double-click or ‘open’!

 

*NOTE – Due to alterations Apple made to filetype handling in Mac OS ‘Big Sur’ EXP files are currently not able to be seen as Thumbnails on Mac computers running Big Sur. All other platforms are unaffected.

I bought Thumbnailer quite a number of years ago and no longer have the license number to put in my new computer Would you all have a copy

Hi Donna,

Thanks for reaching out to embroidery.com! I checked into this, and it doesn't look like you purchased the Thumbnailer through our company. Unfortunately, that means we don't have the license number. I would recommend reaching out to the main Embrilliance company, to see if they have it. Here is a link to their support: https://embrilliance.com/contact-us-2 Another option is that you can contact the company you originally purchased the Thumbnailer from. Sorry we can't help you more on this situation. Best of luck, and have a great day!

Good morning - Purchased Thumbnailer and installed it on new'ish Mac running Big Sur. All of my icons for my PES files are blank, no design pics showing?? I noticed on the Embrilliance site that there could be an issue with EXP files, but no mention of PES files. Any tips/ideas? Thanks!

Hi, Andrea,

Thank you for reaching out to Embroidery.com with your question. Unfortunately, many icon types have issues in Big Sur. I would suggest doing the following to get it working well. Open Finder. From the Finder menu, click View, then click Show View Options. Once you are here, just be sure that "Show icon preview" is selected. This should get it working much better for you, but please feel free to let me know if this is not the case or if you have any further questions. Again, thanks again for reaching out! Have a great day.

Heather, do you have to have embrilliance to run this program? Is it an add-on or does it stand alone. I have Bernina Artista and would like to purchase, but need to know this.

Please Login to comment on this post.

Heather B.

No, you do not need other Embrilliance software in order to use Thumbnailer. Bernina Artista software is fine as long as it uses one of the formats listed above, such as .ART format.

Thank you

Thumbnailer works "quietly". If you open a folder of embroidery designs, it will show pictures instead of default icons. If that is not happening, and you have recently installed it, re-starting the computer should fix it.

(1) I bought Essentials and Thumbnailer. When I use Essentials, I can see thumbnails of the designs. Is this because Essentials INCLUDES thumbnails of the designs as part of the program OR is it because I also bought Thumbnailer? If thumbnails are included as part of Essentials, then I bought Thumbnailer by mistake and don't need it. If thumbnails ARE included as part of the Essentials program, can I get a refund on Thumbnailer?

(2) When I click on the Thumbnailer icon, I get the dialog box asking what formats to read. After I click on Select All, the program closes. I don't seem to be able to use the program to look at thumbnails. Is that because I am doing something wrong, or is it because Thumbnailer has been integrated into Essentials? If they are integrated, why do I have separate icons for Essentials and Thumbnailer in my dock?

(3) I tried to call customer service but you are closed for the weekend. As you can see, I am confused about the Thumbnailer program!

Thanks for your help.

Kirsten S.

Hi Marci,

Good questions. Essentials does not include Thumbnailer.

Thumbnailer is a program that you don't actually use. Once you have chosen the formats "select all" as you did, you have done all that you need to do with it. What Thumbnailer does is allow you to open folders on your computer which contain embroidery files, and see a small thumbnail image of the designs without opening them in any software. Without Thumbnailer, you would see default icons, so that all your designs would be distinguishable in the folder only by their file names.

So, while it maybe looks like it is included with Essentials because it helps you see your designs before you open them, it would look differently if you didn't have Thumbnailer.

How Does Thumbnailer Work?

Kirsten, I think I may have needed to restart my computer for Thumbnailer to take effect, because this morning when I clicked on an embroidery folder, instead of a list with little thumbnails by each file, there is a "carousel" at the top of the page that you can flip through like a book. These images are fairly large and easy to see, and it is simple to flip the pages to see the different designs. It seems like I do not have to be in Essentials for this to work, and I do think this makes it worthwhile to keep the Thumbnailer software. Thank you for your response even though it is the weekend. By the way, I have a 2017 iMac running High Sierra; maybe that makes a difference. Anyway, I do really like the program now! Thanks again! :)

Marci, you are correct! I am sorry I didn't remember to suggest re-starting, and I'm glad you figured it out. It does look different on a Mac.Thanks for sharing the screenshot. I think we have an option for a similar view in Windows, at least I remember it in the XP version, but it's not the default for most of us.

Betty J.

I have Art and Explorations on my laptop. Will it combine both designs or will they be separate? Thank you for the information

Please Login to comment on this post.

Heather B.

Betty, if you are asking about your Art and Explorations software, I do not have any information on those as those are not products we carry.

Embrilliance Thumbnailer works independently of other softwares and basically allows you to preview designs before opening them in whichever software you have. It will not move or combine designs, just allow you to see more easily what you have.

Barrie K.

Hi there can you please tell me what this software does. I read the info but still confused. Is this software something that a person can take an embroidery design and print that image out and use it as a template for projects. What does this do. I am doing research on embroidery software. And etc..

Please Login to comment on this post.

Heather B.

Hi, Barrie. Thanks for the question. No, this software does not allow you to print templates. It basically just allows you to preview your design from Windows (or other operating system) BEFORE you click to open it, so you can easily identify which design is which without having to open each design in your embroidery software. If you're looking for software that allows you to print a image which can be used as a template, I would recommend a software such as Embrillaince Essentials.

Does this software work on Windows 10?

Please Login to comment on this post.

Kirsten S.

I use it on Windows 10. The only issue I had was that after installation, I didn't completely shut down and re-start the computer. Thumbnailer didn't work until I did that. Once I had, it was great!

Thanks for the question, Catherine. Yes, Embrilliance Thumbnailer is compatible with Windows 10.
