Pictures Folder icons as per vista

In Windows Vista in the Pictures Folder, folder icons show 4 of the images from within the folder.
In Windows 7 there are only 2 shown and these are only partially visible.

How can I get back the Vista version of showing 4 of the images on the folder icon ?

It doesn't seem to work that way in Windows 7.

I know exactly what you mean, but the Album Art pictures are allt he same with a very light contrast.

It gets the picture from the folder.jpg

To be honest after a great deal of searching I'm not sure it can be done from within windows. You might be able to find a custom transformation pack although I'm unsure of this..
