some jpegs dont show as thumbnails

when i am viewing my folders of photos, most of the photos show up as a thumbnails...but about 10% of them dont???i havent actually checked them all, but the ones i have checked seem to be photos that are over 3.0 Mb in there an upper limit that the thumbnails will produce a picture to view???and if so, is there anyway around this...its kind of annoying to browse thru thousands of photos, but have many that u cant see the preview/thumbnail..i have a 7MP camera now, so most of my new pics are going to be huge size as well, so if possibleid sure like to sort this out...hopin that it is sumthin easy and stupid that i missed, and not a restriction....

thanks for your time

If you're using gnome, nautilus has a preferences window with a 'preview' tab. In that tab you can set which files to preview (in the case of image files to thumbnail) and the default is to do this only for files smaller than 3mb, but this can be changed here.

I imagine there must be a similar configuration option for Konqueror
