When viewing images (specifically jpgs), the screen tells me that I am using the Windows image viewer. When I load Adobe Photoshop (5.5), when I try to view the same image, I am diverted to the Adobe Image Reader (2.0).

How can I disable the Adobe Image Reader function and use the Windows default image reader?

Using Windows XP/Dell Latitude.

thanks

You are saying you have the photoshop program open, and open a jpeg, instead the image opens in imageready?

The Photoshop program is NOT open when I click on a jpg image file. The default reader appears to be Photoshop AFTER I install the software. Before I install Adobe Photoshop, the default image viewer is the XP Windows viewer. Somehow the default viewer changes when I install Photoshop.

I have uninstalled Adobe Photoshop, and Windows again becomes my default viewer. Once I install Photoshop, it becomes the default, even when, during the installation, I specify that I did not want that part installed.

When you install photoshop it will ask you what extensions you want it to handle from then on. Dont let it choose bmp, jpeg, jpg, gif, or pngs and you should be good.

I just tried that and I still get Photoshop to open when I click on a jpg image. Is there somewhere in XP where one designates which viewer is to be the default viewer. Clearly, before I install Photoshop, Windows is the default viewer; afterwards, Photoshop is. Now, can I change that?

I have this verson on another computer with Win 2K installed and I don't hae that problem. Hence, this make me think it is an XP issue.

Try this please, right click one of the files in question and choose Open With, Now click Choose Program, now choose Windows Picture and Fax viewer and check the box that says always use this to open files of this type. Next click Apply & Ok and see if that resolves the problem. :thumbsup:
