    First of all: I'm not a regular on this specific under-forum so please bear with me if this has been asked and answered before. I tried searching for this problem without any results.

    My problem is that Preview in Leopard seems to react differently to Preview in Tiger.
    When running Tiger I used to open all the pictures I transfered from my camera in Preview to delete the pictures I didn't want. Having a DSLR I shoot raw files and these were also opened by Preview in Tiger. Nice.

    But after I upgraded to Leopard I discovered that all the raw files all of a sudden is opened in Photoshop by standard, and not in Preview. This would be okay if I wanted to edit the picture right away but I usually edit the pictures after sorting them.
    I then tried to ctrl-click on a raw file to try and change which app it would open with as a standard. I chose Preview and thought all was good... But no. Now it's only the specific file I ctrl-clicked on that opens in Preview and not all my raw files as I thought. Not so nice.

    I tried looking about in the Finder and Preview preferences but without luck.

    So I REALLY hope somebody can help me because I don't want to ctrl-click every single raw file I've stored :)

    Click one of the pics. Cmd - I to bring up the info.
    Under the 'open with' header choose Preview. Then click 'change all'

    Enjoy. :)

    Do'h... I actually knew this. I just forgot everything about the possibilities of "Get Info" :).

    Guess that's what happens when one is a newbie to OSX.

    Thanks :)
