    I open, create, and save BMPs all the time with PS CS2. What happens when you try to open one?

    Can you still open BMPs with Paint (wondering if something happened to your file assoc)?

    Does this happen when you change the file type to show all files?

    Yes. File associations. Open explorer, tools, folder options, file types, select bmp and hit change. Then select Photoshop as the default.


    You may have to do this with multiple file types. When some crappy applications install they tromp on the registry entries for other programs so you have to use them instead.
