Photoshop 7.0 does not open JPG files anymore

    What's going on?

    The next day, photoshop suddenly fails to load any JPG files (BMPs seem
    to load OK). No matter whether via Open Dialog or by drag'n'drop, if I
    open a JPG, nothing happens. No error message, nothing. The file just
    won't open.

    Any guesses?

    Same suggestion. Photoshop is a Graphic Editor *not* graphic viewer, so
    when it refuses to load some (I am pretty sure *not* all) format then the
    chance that there may be something wrong with the file.

    - It's either damaged

    - renamed from other format *or* may not be the original format

    Or Photoshop needs to know the *exact* format in order to EDIT *not* just
    for displaying.

    None of the JPGs seem to open anymore. They open with windows native
    viewer, though.
    The files are perfectly ok and unaltered. I think it's some photoshop
    setting gone wrong somehow, but which?

    file association is assigned to win fax viewer
    to change it right click any jpeg
    choose open with
    CHOOSE form list tick the box that says always open with

    not a good idea to open ps every time you need to preview a jpg

    And what do you really mean Photoshop won't open? Photoshop refuses to
    open and reports ERROR?
    Photoshop is graphic editor it will open all formats it supports so there
    is no setting. How about giving some more detail instead of "it won't work"
    which won't help to solve the problem. Like

    - What does Photoshop report when you try to open JPG?

    - Try to SAVE other format as JPG then try to open that specific JPG you
    saved with Photoshop. And give little more detail than "Photoshop won't

    I deleted the D3DXTextureFormat- plug-in and the JPG's started to show
    again. Thanks for the suggestions.
