Hypershade - some shaders not refreshing

Hi All

Recently upgraded to Maya 2013 and noticing that certain textures arnt updating the shaders.
The image below shows two different jpegs assigned but only one is updating the swatch. I`ve tried tga, tifs,pngs and those arnt working, only certain jpegs. Any ideas??

Just right click on the shader and select the Refresh Swatch Command from the marking menu.. or open the shader in the Attribute Editor and double click on the swatch itself.

your image is too big. Therefore you get that default icon.
You can chance the maximal size in the preferences under Display / Performace / MaxRes for swatches

Brilliant, thanks very much. Both suggestions worked, but the cause was max resolution of swatches had defaulted back to 2k x 2k when I`m using 2048 textures, i previously had it on full in other versions of maya. Was driving me nuts!

Thanks again.

Also note if you have the bonus tools there is an option to refresh all texture swatches.
