Question PSE edit program will not open an image
Photoshop Elements 7 (PSE) "Edit" will not open an image selected- INSTEAD screen jumps to edit program from my Sony Alpha purchase- Camera-raw 4.5 Sony DSLR-A100 ??????!!!!!

The photo I'm seeking to edit is taken from the PSE "Organizer" & will not open the my open PSE "Edit" screen.
Never had this problem before in years I have been using PSE "Edit "program...

PC using Windows XP (Pentium (R) dual-core) 2.60GHz - 1.96GBRAM

Is this the only file that this happens with?

Is it a raw file or a jpg?

Will elments7 handle raw files?

reply#1- RAW vs JEPEG opening status- OH MY !
Appreciate early on the day reply as well !

New Info: a) Your Q lead me to discover that (at this time- not in the recent Past!) only JEPEG's open in PSE "edit" - I verified this with multiple image file success JEPEG and multiple failure to open RAW files tried.

b) I have no reason to think Elements 7 the problem- worked with RAW files manytimes in PSE "edit" modes.

c) another "desperate look about" found this setting- maybe helpful?

Under "Preferences" (PSE "edit") "Prefer Adobe Camera Raw for Supported Raw Files" ("File"- "compatibility") is checked !!!!

knowledge is power !

Are you selecting this file from a Windows Explorer (My Pictures) window?

If so, then the default for this file type is to to be opened by other program.

You might try, right clicking the file and then "Open with" and select PSE as the program to use. If this works, then next time you done the same thing, just make sure that there is a check mark in to box marked Always use.

Is this a new camera?

PSE7 may not be able to read the Sony raw file without an update to the raw converter in PSE7.

I wasn't opening in " my pics" - but in the PSE "organizer" pane- HOWEVER !
In the spirit of your thinking- I went to my pics-opened a raw file- selected "choose a program" in the "open with" choice- selected PSE 7 & CHECKED THE BOX TO COMMAND "always open this type of file with"-
HIT ''OK'- PSE "edit" window opened & then slected file (image) jumped open in the unwanted sony editor !!!

Still just thinking out loud but...

Here's a link to update to the latest convertor for PSE7.

Or how about uninstalling the Sony software, as long as you have a backup.
