Here is an extract from another board about he lack of proper thumbnails for photos in Windows 8/8.1:

This is caused by photo file types being changed to "document" in the registry. I don't know why this happened out of the blue to a bunch of people, but once it happens the Photos app no longer sees photos as photos, hence it won't display them.

To fix it, run regedit and browse to this key: -

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\KindMap

It also causes OneDrive to lose the thumbnails for images, photos, etc..

P.S. I have no idea what the tag "meta" means but I had to enter something!

@Bertilak - I am afraid but your question looks to me like a W8 and KindMap problem not like an LibO issue. If my understanding is correct, you better look into a W8 and/or KindMap forum otherwise stay tuned.
