I have a rather slow old machine, and often want to browse
through directories of numerically named pictures from a digital
camera. Clicking the "generate preview" can take quite a long time, so
I would like to pre-generate the preview thumbnails if possible.

I know the previews are stored in .xvpics, as some sort of pnm
image, but how can I find out exactly what format is required? My
attempts at using convert to create previews have failed so far - I
can produce a little image that is very similar to the ones gimp
produces, but gimp just ignores them when it comes to using them for

Any suggestions?
