[EP-tech] Re: Dark or black Thumbnails



Further to Tim's advice, try to convert images on the server, from the 
command line and see what you get (black images or not). You can usually 
run: convert <input> <output> eg "convert pub.pdf images.jpg".

If you get black images from PDF documents, then try to upgrade 
Ghostscript. If you get black images when generating JPEG but not when 
generating PNG, perhaps a problem with libjpeg etc.
