    I am using a PowerBook G4 with OS10.3.2 and Photoshop CS and Nikon
    View 6. When opening an image file it defaults to View. Can I make
    files default to Photoshop rather than removing View from the hard
    drive to accomplish this?

    Select a file in the Finder

    Press Command + I

    In the dialog box that opens there is a entry that says "Open with" and the
    application is listed.

    Click on the box to select another application that can open the file.

    Then, below the application there is a box to use that application for all
    files of the same type.

    Thanks for your help, but this doesn't work.

    1 I selected a file.
    2 Pressed Command + I
    3 In the dialog box under the entry "Open with" the application listed
    is Nikon View 6 (default).
    4 I chose "other"
    5 A new window opens titled "Choose Other Application". I chose Adobe
    Photoshop CS and checked "Always Open With". The "Add" button remains

    I assume that I need to be able to click this to complete the change.
    What have I done wrong?

    It sounds like PS does not know how to handle the image file. Does the
    files have an extension? Are you sure that PS can open that kind of file?
    Do you need a plugin to open it? Did you check documentation/installer
    CD/web site?
