Setting Up

I recently upgraded to Photoshop CS6. I can open images from Photoshop. When I am in Bridge and try to open to Photoshop, if I last worked on the image some time ago (CS4?) I get an error message "Windows cannot find CS4". IS this a Preferences issue - what do I need to change. Thanks.

    I'd look in the Bridge preferences under File Type Assiciations and see if that file type is perhaps set for photoshop cs4 or explorer settings which could also be set for cs4.

    When you hit the browse button navigate to


    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS6 (64 Bit)


    or on a 32 bit system:


    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS6



    and click on the Photoshop.exe in that folder and then click Open

    and that should set jpegs so they open photoshop cs6 from bridge

    If you trashed cs5/cs4 after installing cs6 then that's probably why your file assiciations are all messed up and doing a uninstall/reinstall of photoshop cs6 would set the rest unless you want manully set all

    your file assiciations to cs6.


    Also, you really should use the program unistallers instead of just puttng the program folders in the trash.

    In the above case an unistall and reinstall usually changes nothing.  You would have needed to run the Adobe Script Cleaner after the uninstall.  THis gets the pieces left with an uninstall.  But if it works now just leave it.
