    I see nobody has anything to offer. No problem - I have found the answer elsewhere. For those of you who might be interested (as this resolves similar issues with other Office Apps.), the answer is as follows:



    First, create a System Restore point, then Start, Run regedit. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\9.0\Common\Internet and create a new DWORD value named ForceShellExecute. Double-click on this and give it a value of one, then close the Registry editor.
    You will probably have other version numbers of Office as Registry keys. I was using Office 2003 and had keys for 8.0, 9.0 and 11.0. Adding the key to 11.0 didn’t work, but adding it to 9.0 caused the hyperlink associations to correspond with the Explorer associations. This should also work for Office 2000 and Office XP.

I don't want photoshop to launch when I open a pdf or a jpg


Well, here's the simple steps, Right-click on any jpg/jpeg file, select "properties" click "change" and select "Windows Picture and Fax Viewer" "Ok" "Apply" "Ok". Sometimes you'll need to browse the application, but in your case, i hope "windows picture and fax viewer" is right there. Same thing with the pdf, but you'll only need to open a pdf reader like "Adobe Reader" or "Fixit Reader". Good luck. Thank you for using FixYa.

Photoshop automate-batch rename


I think Photoshop renamed all pictures using the wrong extension. If you can open images with Windows Fax Viewer, they should work in Photoshop too. Check the extension of the photos, they should be JPEG with a .jpg extension. If not, try to rename them using the .jpg at end of the file name. I would be very surprised if Photoshop cannot recognize photos that Windows can. Tell me if this works because ther is another way but I need to know what extension it is currently.

Have rec'd email with a jpg file attached How can I open it


JPG, JPEG, are standard picture files. By default windows XP should be able to open them. But, sometimes Email programs block those files (attachments) because of infection potential. Check your mail security settings, specifically, look for a setting that says "block potentially harmful attachments" and uncheck it. then reopen your mail client program.

Paint cannot save file windows 2000 proffessional


This fix should allow you to use MS Paint to Open and Save JPG files, and Open and Save GIF files. The quality of the saved GIF with MS Paint may be reduced because of the limited 256-color palette (See here for an explanation and workaround). A better alternative for opening and saving JPG and GIF files would be to download and install a great FREE image viewer called IrfanView (MS Paint is still better for individual pixel editing, so it's good to have both).
If you want to proceed with the MS Paint Fix, you should first do a search on your hard drive to see if you
have the jpegim32.flt and gifimp32.flt filters.
You can find those files here:
http://www3.sympatico.ca/one.human/files/Jpegim32.flt
http://www3.sympatico.ca/one.human/files/Gifimp32.flt
You need to make sure you have both filters in the following folders:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\grphflt
C:\Windows\MsApps\Grphflt
You may already have the JPEG Filter on your system, but only in one location. If that is the case, Copy and Paste it to the other location. Once you have the JPEG Filter in both locations, you may only need to do a simple Registry edit to be able to "Save As" a JPG.
If you already have the JPEG Graphics Filter on your system (and in both locations as stated above), but MS Paint still won't let you "Save As" JPG, you can manually edit the Registry to correct this. It's a simple fix. Go to Start, Run, type REGEDIT, and click OK. Go to this key by clicking the + signs beside the keys (folders):
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Shared Tools\Graphics Filters\Export\JPEG.
Click on the "JPEG" key (folder) in the left pane, and you'll see a String Value in the right pane with the name "Extensions". Make sure under the "Data" column it shows only "jpg". If it shows "jpg, jpeg", double-click on the "Extensions" string and from the "Value data" field remove "jpeg" so that it only reads "jpg" (without the quotes).
If it worked, this edit allows you to "Save As" JPG. If it didn't work, or if you want to be able to also open and save GIF files, read on.

Or use this reg file to export your files as jpeg

Nero Photosnap Viewer Suddenly stopped working.


Let's say you cannot open JPG pics. This is what you have to do. 1) In explorer (My Computer), click Tools > Folder Options. 2) In the dialog box, click 'File Types' tab. 3) Scroll down until you see the JPG extension. 4) Select it and click 'Change' button below. 5) Select a program you want to use to open JPG files. (Windows Picture and Fax Viewer is the default program: You can select it.) 6) Click OK button. 7) If you have trouble opening other graphic types (BMP, GIF, PNG etc.) look for those extensions and repeat steps 4 to 6. 8) Click 'OK' button to close Folder Options dialog.

Problem in opening picture files


Its possible that you installed a graphic program that upon install it changed the extension of your picture files. An example would be photoshop, This program could change your JPG files to PSD format upon install.
You can download a software program that can convert your pictures from the PSD ext. to JPEG. Once such program is (Easy Graphic Converter), It is Free... Another excellent program is Graphic Workshop. I think that one is trial but it has a time limit.

If you don't want to go that route you can go into your file ext. settings and change it to where a jpg file will be opened with another program other than PhotoShop. This might solve your problem.

To get to this screen, you can go into ( My Documents ) click on ( tools) at the top on the menu bar. Then click on ( Folder Options ). From there click in ( File Types ). Then find your JPG ext.
and it will tell you what program opens your jpg files. If it says CS3, change it to something else like WIndows Picture and Fax Viewer or something else.
