Photoshop Settings

It seems I have unkowingly changed a setting somewhere in PS3. When I go to open a file in Photoshop a large box appears similar to Windows Explorer with no preview for files. I get Desktop, My Computer, My Documents etc down left hand side and files to the right.

Also, if I use the crop tool and crop lets say a 5mm border around the edge of a 5mb image, when I select, the image reduces almost to a thumbnail and when I zoom in it is heavily pixelated.

Help please?

In the Open dialog, look at the bottom left hand corner. You have the option of "Use OS dialog" or "Use Adobe dialog". Toggle them and see if that helps.

This is because you've got values entered in the Options bar, particularly in the Resolution field. Make sure the resolution field is clear, and maybe the others as well, and you'll be fine. You'll see a "clear" button in the options bar.
