    Before I had Photoshop CS2 there was a context menu with CS that said "Open in photoshop" when I right clicked on a picture. Has anybody found a way to get this option back?

    Hm well you can try this script I made, which will point it to the default install path for image ready cs2 and photoshop cs2 for gif, png, bmp, and jpeg images, as well as PSD files.

    It would take too long to do all the file types and those are the most common. If you do use it then be sure to back up your registry first as safe practice. View attachment 5990

    Did it work out for both of you? It did on my system, but I was not sure how well it would carry over on others.

    I basically installed CS, and then modified the CS keys to point to the CS2 exe file and exported each bit of code to one reg file.

    hi guys

    I always had to teach windows to do it once for a particular file and I would have the option after that.

    Right click on a jpeg and select "open with" choose program.

    In the next box select browse and choose the photoshop exe.

    make sure that you do not check "always use the selected program to open ..."

    Now whenever you decide to open a jpeg you could also right click and open with photoshop

    hope it helped.

    for gif images I have both phtoshop and gif animator as my choices.

    very handy
