    Setting Photoshop as default image viewer
    When I double-click an image file, especially JPGs, I prefer that it be opened by Photoshop, rather than Preview or Color Sync Utility.

    Also, when I want to "Edit Original" from a link in InDesign, even with Photoshop open, most of the time, the OS launches Preview.

    Can I set a preference somewhere to make this happen?

    Thanks, Bill

    2012 13" MBP (2.5 i5, 8GB)
    Can't answer your InDesign question but as for the file association, right click a JPG > Get Info > Open With > change the app to Photoshop > "Change All...". It's possible that this may also answer your InDesign question if InDesign depends on system wide file associations.
