    I've got OSX on a MacBook Pro and a bunch of programs like Photoshop, After Effects, Illustrator etc. and I'd like them to be accessible in my dock like iPhoto or iMovie.

    How do I do this?

    BTW, currently, I have Firefox in the dock but when I click on it a box pops up and I have to again click on the Firefox logo for the app to actually open. Then something that looks like an external hard drive with the Firefox logo appears on my Desktop. Why is this happening?

    Thanks...

    You drag the apps from the Applications folder to the Dock.

    You didn't install the app. See here: http://guides.macrumors.com/Installing_Applications_in_Mac_OS_X
