    Reset your file associations in Mac OS X. Select the problematic image and choose File > Get Info > Open  With and re-select Photoshop as the application to open that type of file. Click Change All.

    In that case, it sounds like some sort of corruption in your operating system. You may have to reinstall the operating system, or try to track down a preference file in the OS which is causing the problem.

    You might ask these questions in the forums on the Apple website. It's more focused (of course) on operating system issues.

     

    If you can't find the answer, reinstalling your version of Mac OS X would probably do it.

    Thanks for letting us know. Often reinstalling InDesign solves problems like this.
