Opening photos in new programs

Question : Every time I download and open a JPEG photo from an e-mail message, the picture automatically opens in Photoshop. How can I make Picasa my default program instead?

Answer : You can change the program that's been designated to open JPEG photo files from Photoshop to Picasa.

One way to do this is to right-click on any JPEG image file and choose the "Open With" option from the drop-down menu.

Windows will give you a list of recommended programs that can open JPEG images.

Select Picasa from the list and check the box next to "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file," then click on the OK button.

If you don't see Picasa in the list, click the Browse button and go to the Programs folder on your hard drive. In the Picasa2 folder, choose Picasa2.exe.

When you open that JPEG photo, Picasa should open and show you the picture, along with its buttons that let you make minor corrections to the image, post it on your blog, print it or even e-mail it to someone else.
