Setting files to open in default Applications
 
I want all my JPEGs to open in 'Preview' - however if I make a JPEG in photoshop it then makes that JPEG alone as to open in Photoshop by default.

Also, if I have a folder full of JPEGs, is there a way when I open a JPEG in Preview to press a 'next' or 'previous' button or key so I don't have to keep going through each JPEG and clicking it one by one?

I also have lots of EPS files on my machine, and they will all only open in Illustrator if I go through each one by one and choose it to open in Illustrator.

Any ideas how I can overcome these problems?

G'day Liam,

Ps is a pain like that...it hijacks all images...with the folder full'o'jpegs, just select them all and command+O or double-click them and the will open in Preview (hopefully PS won't notice) and if you click on the Drawer icon in the upper left, a drawer pops out and all you need to do to scroll through them is hit the right or left arrow....

To expand on Pulse-8's answer, open the folder full of jpgs by starting Preview and navigating to the folder go to File in the menu bar, then choose Open. When you find the folder, click on the Open button. All the jpgs will show up in the drawer, and hitting the down arrow will take you to the next one.

You can make all your jpgs open in Preview by right-clicking/control-clicking one of them. Then go to Get Info. At the bottom of the Get Info window is a drop-down menu that says Open With. Choose Preview.

Under that is another button that says Change All. Click on that.
