    I used to be able to drag a photo from iPhoto down to the Photoshop icon in the dock and Photoshop would open the original file.

    Now, on my new MBP, it doesn't happen.

    Any ideas anyone?

    As far as I know, it has always opened the modified version of the file. I believe it was that way in iPhoto 06 and now in iPhoto 08

    to open the original, you could right click and choose "show original file" - in finder and drag that to PS

    My apologies. To reiterate, when I drag from iPhoto to the PS icon in the dock, it opens PS but not the file (when I said 'original file', I meant the file itself as opposed to the thumbnail).

    hmm, I don't know then. Since I upgraded to Leopard, I don't have PS (Elements) installed, but I just checked and it worked for me when I dragged over to Graphics Converter.

    Hopefully someone else has an answer for you.
