No Thumbnails since upgrade to 5.1.0

I just upgraded my Mini to 5.1.0 and immediately noticed that I had no "thumbnails".. After reading the release notes, I can see this is expected as the format has changed from PNG to QOI and you need to use Slicer 2.7.0, so existing/old GCODE files no longer show the Thumbnail.

But I also upgraded the Slicer to 2.7.0 and have transferred a newly sliced GCODE file to the printer and still don't have a Thumbnail

Is there an option I need to enable?

Jon

Its OK.. I worked it out.. You have to change the Thumbnail settings in the printer profile from PNG to QOI.. its sorted now..

Hello, I have the same problem. The first part worked strangely, now it no longer shows any images.

This is what the setting looks like in the slicer:

 

 

Can you show a picture of what you changed?

 

Thanks in advance

Where is this thumbnail setting? I can't find it. Is it on the printer, or on PrusaSlicer software? Please direct the path to get there.

Also, when I installed the latest PrusaSlicer after the firmware, it had option unselected to install drivers. Should I have installed more drivers? Not sure how to tell if I have the latest drivers installed.

On the right menu to the right of the Printer there is a little cog icon, when you press it you get a menu, click Edit Preset, then you are redirected to the Printer Settings > General section. 

See my GitHub and printables.com for some 3d stuff that you may like.

I found out the problem (in my case). I was ignoring the "New printer configuration update available" link when launching PrusaSlicer. After updating printer configuration when launching PrusaSlicer again, then it says to make sure you have firmware 5.1 installed and the thumbnails are visible once again.
