Thanks!

As you watch the contents of a given folder, you'll see the black borders go away. To get the best efficiency out of Bridge, be sure your thumbnail generation settings are like this:

Excellent. Thanks Gary.

I'll interpret that as: "Put the kettle on, and by the time you've had a cuppa, the issue should have resolved itself."

EXACTLY the kind of answer I like.

Thanks again - Paul
