    A very good way of opening pictures using photoshop is to drag and drop your pic.
    You can do this by selecting your img, then drag it to the photoshop taskbar.
    When you see the photoshop windows release your mouse. And that's it baby! It's much simplier than going to File > Open and search your pic to whereever that file is.

    Remember: - "Drag and Drop"

    You may find this trick useful to other things to.

    From what I remember PS has always had a problem with opening .jpg, .gif,.bmp, etc by simply clicking. I'm not exactly sure of the reason but you will also notice that you can not edit these items as well. Most times you have to select all and paste them in a new canvas and edit them. I believe it has to do with the way PS saves each file. If saved by another program PS doesn't open it right. Try opening a .jpg that was created by PS by double clicking on it. (That is that you have .jpg associated to be open with PS)
    Most of my questions/posts are fairly straightforward and simple. I post long verbose messages in an attempt to be thorough.

    if u are just planning to view files, using photoshop is abit slow. i don't recommend it at all. why not just use ACD viewer? Besides, ACD viewer can be used to view (certain..) *.psd Photoshop masterfiles too.

    btw, in photoshop, you can't edit the file you opened but you do exactly what StupidRalph said. It isn't a 'PROBLEM'. It is a feature.

    Found this on Adobe's forums.

    Just used it on the Wife's laptop and it works like a charm.

    Q. When I double click some image files in Explorer, or select Open With, Photoshop starts but instead of loading the file presents a New Image d/box.

    A. XP/Win2k has put in a bad registry key used for opening that kind of file. If you feel *comfortable* editing the registry, you can find the bad key at

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Applications\Photoshop.exe\shell\open\command\(Default)

    For some reason, sometimes Windows XP creates this key the first time without "%1" at the end. Delete the (Default) entry, go to Windows Explorer, select a file type you want to open in Photoshop, right click, go to Open With, select Choose Program, click Browse (Photoshop won't be in the list after deleting the registry key), select your Photoshop executable, and make sure "Always use..." is checked.

    If you do not feel comfortable editing the registry DO NOT DO THIS.
