    Depends on the file type.

    If it is a PSD, Photoshop is the standard application to open it.

    If it is a JPEG, Preview should be the application that opens, but after you installed Photoshop, that gets quite fubar.

    So if you have a JPEG, right click on it and Get Info on it (Command + I) and go to where it says "Open with". Here you can set the desired software to open your JPEG with. Choose Preview and click "Change All" and "Yes/Okay" in the following dialog.

    That should open all your JPEGs in Preview.

    The same can be done with PSDs, but all layers will be not visible, only the top one.

    Or you could simply just drag the PSD to the Preview icon in the Dock.
