    Does anyone know how to create a default on the OS to open ALL jpegs in one particular application? I would like my Mac to default to function that way but I can't figure out if that is possible or not. I have about half my jpegs and tiffs opening in Preview.

    I know you can manually use the information window on each file and tell it to open in a specific, app. But I would like to just create Photoshop as the default for all PSD, Jpegs, and Tiffs.

    thanks for any tips you have, now... back to my podcasting.

    i'd be more clear if I were at home on my g4, so ill try from memory.

    iirc, get info on a jpg, in one pane, it should say "open with" change that to Photoshop, and there should be a check box that says "Always open files of this type with" or something like that.

    There's an option in the information window where you can select if what you selected should be used for all files of the same filetype, IIRC.

    Select your jpg, tiff, etc. picture, and press apple+i. A window will open, click on the "Open With" drop down menu, select Photoshop, then click on the "Change All" button.

    Now all your pictures will open in Photoshop.

    edit: beaten :(
