Select the type of the image
Cmd + I
select the apropriate program
Change all or open always with or similar
Thanks for your reply.
I dont think I understand fully what you mean, cmd + I brings spell check up.
Willi gave you the Mac shortcut, and you're on Windows. We need to let a Windows person give you the steps.
No, he is on Mac, because he writes "Preview", that's Apple's standard program to open any image.
You cannot do it in InDesign
Go to the finder
select any file of the type of the image, then follow the steps.
Great, thanks! that worked!
Is there any way to do this without setting up in finder to open every JPG in photoshop even when not in Indesign?
You have to do it only once in the finder on your computer, when you are in the Info dialog, you have to click "Change All …", that will change it for all files of the same type.
But you ave to do the same for JPG and JPEG and PSD, and TIFF and TIF and so on, each type once.
There is no other way than to di it in the Finder.
But now when I open any jpeg it wont open in preview. It always opens in Photoshop.
Is there any way to make it so the image opens in photoshop when I option double click in Indesign and when I am not in Indesign the image opens in preview.
No, that is a global setting on your computer. But you can drag and drop the file icon to the program icon in the task bar. But why would someone like to open the file in Preview, because this is a very bad program to view images. If you want to preview the content of your files why are you not using Bridge? As you are working with InDesign and Photoshop you should use Bridge anyway.
Yes, good tip! I definately need to use Bridge.
OK that makes sense, Thanks again!
