I can't tell for Photoshop (but I assume the method would be similar). In Gimp I would do: open the full scale image add the thumbnail as an additional layer scale up the thumbnail so that it exactly matches the full-scale image set the thumbnail layer to "Color" blend mode Rationale: the detail we perceive in the image is more due to luminosity than to ...

No. You can't do that. Where would it come from? In any case, the JPEG thumbnail is just a very small tiny version, usually 160×120. That's so small as to be basically useless, so it's often discarded so as to not waste that space and/or bandwidth. Once it's discarded, you could create a new one from the full-sized image, but you can't in any way create one ...

Unless you have need of the PreviewImage, it probably isn't worth worrying about. Minor errors aren't necessarily a sign of image damage. It could be that the camera isn't writing the image metadata exactly according to the specifications or that ExifTool doesn't deal with the peculiarities of that specific camera. Given the huge range of cameras out ...

Last time I used Aperture, I went into my iPhoto/Aperture Library file. It appears as a package/single-file in Finder, but it's actually just a folder. Control-click or use Right-Click on a two button mouse (a.k.a. "Secondary Click," many ways to use this) and select "Show Package Contents. Through here you will be able to navigate to various folders with ...
