One thing I have never figured out on the Mac is how to choose which Application should be used for opening specific file types. For example, I had Graphic Converter installed on my system then bought Photoshop. I now want Phototshop to be my default program for opening specific image files .jpg, .jpeg, .gif, .tiff. I have tried endlessly to configure the system to use Photohop for these File types by using the Internet Control Panel. Under the Advanced Tab: File Mapping and also under the File Exchange Control Panel. Neither of these locations allow you to force file types to open with certain programs. Is there no way of doing this?? As of now, these file types try to open with Graphic Converter but when the system cannot find the program it opens a file translation window and asks me to pick an APP. Once I have resaved the file it now opens with the new app, I would like to figure out how to use a global reassignment of file types, maybe I can't. I seem to remember this was possible with Windows.
any help would be greatly appreciated,
