Open up Explorer and pick an image. Right click on the image and pick Open
with... and then find the application you want to open these images with. If
you then check the box that says ALWAYS open with this application... that
will sort out the problem.
Thankyou so much for the tip! I didnt think of such a simple solution:-) Tina
No problem. Wish everything were like that.
I have a question in the forum just below yours concerning Adobe Photo Downloader opening when I insert my CF card into the reader and I found what to do.
You have to do a resgitry edit though and you may not be comfortable with that.
But here goes.
Find the key that refers to apdproxy.exe
Restart your machine.
Now Adobe Photo Downloader will not take control and you can use the
standard method of opening a folder.
Or someone else, could you please verify this workaround please? and if it
does work, I'll make it into an FAQ. I'm running off to teach right now.
You can do this very easily by unchecking a setting in the preferences of PSA starter edition.
Open Starter Edition, goto Edit -> Preferences -> Files and uncheck the option "Use Photoshop Album Starter Edition to view JPEG files".
Deepika's solution works fine for the initial problem reported by Tina.
My problem is that after installing photoshop Album Starter Edition 3 When I plugged in my usb flash drive I couldn't find it anywhere - except Album. Now I had 3 photos on the flash drive but a load of other files, applications etc., also. But I can't access these! Help! How do I disable Album grabbing the entire usb drive? I think Album is a great free program, but I'd rather have my usb drive............. Any ideas greatly apreciated,
Try disabling the the Photo Downloader by right clicking the icon with a camera and a green arrow in the system tray and selecting Disable on the menu.
If this does not work, please log a bug at http://www.adobe.com/misc/bugreport.html
Thanks for the info. I should have read the manual a little more carefully!!!
>Try disabling the the Photo Downloader by right clicking the icon with a camera and a green arrow in the system tray and selecting Disable on the menu.
This sounds like the same thing that is happening with the Organizer of PS Elements 4. I have heard people say that the icon in the system tray and the problem of taking over the flash drive comes back again after the next reboot.
So should the disable of the downloader done from the System Tray persist after a reboot? Or is there something else that needs to be done to keep it disabled across reboots?
Please answer these questions for both PSA SE 3 and PSE 4. Thank you.
After disabling the icon from the system tray, the icon is still visible in the system tray but has a red cross over it. After this the Photo Downloader stops launching whenever a camera/Flash Drive is connected. This state persists even after reboot.
This seems to be true for both PSA SE3 and PSE 4.
