I can still see resource forks (filename/rsrc
) files under Snow Leopard.

If I saved pictures with a Snow Leopard image editor, the thumbnails appear in list view as well, but not otherwise. How does that work?
I believe the thumbnails and folder position (behaviour) are stored in .DS_Store
(equivalent to desktop.ini
in Windows), and they are just invisible by default.
When saving images, many image programmes create thumbnail (to the file) at the same time. If thumbnail is included, the file (icon) in Finder should show up with the thumbnail. Also, users can control to preview the folder or not and the Finder may try to generate thumbnails.
I could be wrong on this.
