  • Photoshop: Cann't get it to open .JPG extension fr

    When I double click on a .JPG file it will not open by Photoshop. It wants to use viewer.exe. I went as far as trashing viewer.exe. I have tried to change the View-->Folder-->options-->File Type. and I get a message: The extension '.JPG' is already in use by file type 'ViewerFrameClass'. Choose another extension. I also cannot find in the file types ViewerFrameClass. I have Photoshop version 4.0. HELP! I have tried everything I can think of!

    Right click on the JPG and choose "Open With". Then "Choose Default Program" and "Browse" and point it at Photoshop's exe file. Make sure "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" is checked.

      I'm looking for a Windows utility that can edit what shows up under Open With when you rightclick on a document. Something easier to use than the NirSoft app.

      I don't know if it's just my machine and/or my installation, but Photoshop 7 (I've tried the original and v 7.0.1) insists on adding a .psd extension to the file every time I try to...

      Error message: "drawing file is not valid"
      by thibcorm
      I'm using version 2004. A friend sent me two files (generated by someone other than him).
      When I tried to open the files in version 04 (which is what I use)... I've got the same error message (drawing file is not valid).

      Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

      I was wondering if anyone had experienced this and knows an easy way out.
