Now that I have both CS2 and CS3 installed, the default for a double-click became CS3.. I tried by command-i (get info) to make the default CS2 again, but I cannot.. Photoshop CS3 keeps taking over..<br><br>Do you know of a way, other than deleting CS3, to make Photoshop CS2 the default again? Help..<br><br>Thanks<br><br>...<br>** DigitalEye **
Yeesh. That's what the Quark 7 beta did. What worked then — and I don't know why — was dragging the file to the desired app icon and opening it that way. Save as, then set the default in get info. I have no way of knowing if it'll work with Pshop, but it's something to try.<br><br>
Can you do it through the information window? Click on the Open with button, choose the application you want, then make the choice apply to all of that kind of document?<br><br>____________________________________________________<br>Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive,<br>But to be young was very heaven!

Precisely what I did. Worked like a charm. Anyway, soon after playing with the beta I got rid of it. I'm content to wait for the real deal now. At this point, beyond a few minor interface changes (hooray for slimming down the tool palette!) I am not sure how great a leap forward this is from CS 2. The bridge is indeed more usable, however.<br><br>I'm now more interested in what changes they have in store for Illustrator. I will probably upgrade the suite, especially if it means that day-to-day operations are speeded up. Perhaps it's going to be more of a boon to Intel Mac owners. I'm still on a G5, albeit a decent dual with lots of RAM.<br><br>[color:red]max</font color=red>

Thanks, but none of the suggested methods worked I currently right-click on a file and open it with CS2 (even from Bridge CS2).<br><br>I like to use Photoshop CS3 every now and then, but CS2 is more stable.. I guess if I cannot find an answer, I'll simply trash it.. GRRR<br><br>...<br>** DigitalEye **
Well, it is a beta. If you're not interested in giving feedback to Adobe over issues you're experiencing with PS CS3, it's probably best to not use it for your production work. In time it will be available anyway. I wonder when that is, though... is it the first quarter of this year? I've kind of been out of the loop in terms of keeping tabs.<br><br>[color:red]max</font color=red>
From Macfixit;<br><br>In some cases, after installing the Photoshop CS3 beta, all Photoshop documents (regardless of which version created them) open, by default, in Photoshop CS3. Some users have reported that even after switching the "Open With" option for specific files (accessible by selecting a document(s) in the Finder and pressing Command-I or selecting "Get Info" from the file menu then using the "Open With" drop-down menu) back to Photoshop CS2, the documents still open in CS3.<br><br>This problem also manifests when opening images from the Bridge. In other words, the link between the CS2 bridge and Photoshop CS2 is severed by installation of Photoshop CS3.<br><br>When users attempt to click the "Open" button in the Bridge, the file(s) is automatically opened in Photoshop CS3. You can change the associations back to Photoshop CS2 (go to Bridge's preferences, and select "File Type Associations from the left-hand pane), but the file(s) will still fail to properly open in CS2.<br><br>One option is to select the desired individual file in Bridge while holding the control key (or right-clicking) to bring up a contextual menu that will allow you to select Photoshop CS2 for opening.<br><br>In addition, Adobe has posted a potential solution for this issue in its Adobe Photoshop CS3 beta FAQ that involves deleting the following directories:<br><br>/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Launch/photoshop/10.0/<br>/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Launch/bridge/2.0<br>Another potential solution to this problem (albeit inconvenient) may be to remove Photoshop CS3 completely then reset Mac OS X's Launch Services.<br><br>There are a number of ways to reset the Launch Services database.<br><br>The easiest is to use a utility like LSRefresh. Several general-purpose Mac OS X maintenance utilities, including AppleJack, can perform this function as well.<br><br>You can also manually delete the Mac OS X Launch Services caches from the directory: /Library/Caches/. Delete any files that are named as such:<br><br>com.apple.LaunchServices-[...].csstore<br>e.g.: com.apple.LaunchServices-015501.csstore<br>Also, navigate to ~/Library/Preferences and delete the file:<br><br>com.apple.LaunchServices.plist<br>then restart.<br><br>There are utilities that will reset Launch Services also. Tiger Cache Cleaner is one.<br><br>HTH <br><br>

Since my main income comes from photography, I like the fine tuning I can do to the RAW file before I open it (Adobe Camera RAW 4.0), in addition to the B&W conversion tools.. But again, it's beta and I suspect it to be released around May, since it's when the serial number expires..<br><br>...<br>** DigitalEye **<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by walzuhair on 01/02/07 11:17 AM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>
I hear what you're saying about working with RAW files. I don't do that myself, at least not until I score a new camera later this year. But that said, it seems to me that what we get these days in older, established software like Photoshop are somewhat humbler, more incremental improvements; the bolder developments seem to lie in new adventures in interfacing and editing operations like what you find in Lightroom. Although I suppose that the two apps are pretty different and will only diverge in their abilities as time goes on. Photoshop probably appeals more to graphic designers than pure photography professionals.<br><br>I also wonder how Lightroom stacks up against Aperture. I have a pro photographer friend who thinks Adobe's product is already miles better than Apple's. What do you think, Walzuhair?<br><br>[color:red]max</font color=red>
