    I'm in need of adding a program in the "Open With" when I control+click on a picture.

    Situation: I have Photoshop 5.5 and it of course is running in Classic. Problem is OS X sometimes doesn't include it in the "Open with" menu. I don't know how many times I have had to manually choose Adobe PS with the "Other..." option in that menu. I don't want PS to be my Default, just an option.

    Some files will give me the option and some won't, doesn't matter what type (tiff, jpg, etc)

    Hmmm that would be useful to know, I get a list of probably over 30 some are image converters that are .exe (came with PS CS2).

    Bobdude161, is Photoshop 5 located in either /Applications, ~/Applications or /Applications (OS 9)?

    And, another question, does the Classic applications appear on the context menu once Classic is running, and only then?

    That's easily fixed... ;)

    PS is in the OS X Applications folder and the availibilty nor the absence of Classic effects the outcome. I think the PS option doesn't show when I open pictures that are freshly downloaded from the internets or off a digital camera. Interesting....
