    Considered doing a Forum search yet?

    Anyway, you’d have to set that for all intended formats that don’t have Photoshop as default-application.

    In the Finder raise the Info (command-I) of one jpg (for example), set »Open with« to Photoshop and click »Change All«.

    You don’t understand what the Finder is, the thing where you handle folders and files etc.?

    When a jpg is selected and you click command-I the file’s info should be displayed (also File > Get Info).

    And there should be a line with the text »Open with:« …

    Close the jpeg in Photoshop! This procedure is done on an unopened (closed) file in the finder, Photoshop is not involved.

     

    Open a FINDER window, click ONCE to select your file (NOT double click to open it)

    Command I or in the Finder, File menu, select Get Info.

     

    In the GET INFO window, change the Open With item to Photoshop

    Click the CHANGE ALL button, You will get the warning "This change will apply to all Adobe Photoshop CS5.app documents with extension “.jpg”.

    Click CONTINUE and from now on all jpegs double clicked in the finder will automatically open in Photoshop

    Plaquemines Parish  No, just foolin'

     

    Not even close, however, I do make a gumbo every once in a while.

     

    It's just a name, not unlike Gumby!
