I have been working on some pictures. one folder suddenly appeared as a PSP file. Nothing I have will open it.

try using open as in the file menu. if you’re sure they’re tifs try "open as" tif.

psp is paint shop pro also the extention for photoshop prefrences.

worth a shot. i don’t know how you could mass covert them without knowing it though. how many files?

By PSP, you mean that double clicking on them opens them with Paint Shop, correct? It does not mean that the files now have .psp appended to the end of the file name.

If so, this is just the association with the file. Reloading PSP will not solve the problem, in fact your installing PSP is what caused the problem. It took over all the file extensions it could handle.

Reinstalling Photoshop would let PS take control again, but there is an easier way.

Depending on your OS, you should be able to right click, or shift-right click on a file and get a menu item reading "Open With". Do this, and you will be able to browse to Photoshop.exe. A check box at some point will ask if you want to open with this program all the time. Check it, and when you do, all the Tifs will open in PS again.

Thank you. I did check the box so my pictures will open in Photoshop. However, I did reload Paint Shop Pro and used it to convert the pictures back to tif.
