    I have a new 24" iMac, 4gb, 1tb, all the bells ad whistles. I have Adobe Creative Suite Design Premium on it. Every time I click on file>open in Photoshop; Photoshop shuts down unexpectedly.

    IIRC, PhotoshopCS is not officially supported in Leopard. (CS3 is though)

    Problem solved... it is a quirk

    Apparently the last file I loaded last night was from a customer flash drive. Photoshop was erroring out because when I clicked OPEN it was looking for the place it last found a file which had been removed. I rebooted, reinserted the flash drive and did another FILE > OPEN and it worked.

    seems quirky to me....

    Thanks to all for the help...

    Files from CDROM, Flash Drive, etc... should be first copied to the internal HDD, then opened in Photoshop.

    Sounds to me like you were clicking "File>Open Recent"

    FedEx delivered the drive, I opened the file in PS CS3 (since it was already open) to see what he had, since it was what I was looking for I saved it to my HDD (did a 'save as') and went home... not something that normally happens with most users doing FTP but next time I know to change my process.... live and learn.
