Paint Shop Pro 7 Browse Window
Anyone here familiar with Paint Shop Pro?
I've got a strange problem i can't seem to fix.
Normally, when you have a file type associated with a program, and that program is integrated into the windows shell, you can right click the file and send it to the program. This opens the program and the program instantly opens the file.
I can't get my images to open up within Paint Shop Pro. I used to be able to do this with ease, with other computers. It only happens with PSP. Instead, once PSP opens up, it opens up this strange BROWSER window with a directory tree automatically opened up to it's own image folder (within the jasc psp folder -- it's default image folder). I've gone through all the settings and there's no way to change this that i've seen. I'll add, that i've never seen this problem before with any other computer.
Here's an example of what happens:
I right click on image.jpg within c:\My Pics. I click "OPEN WITH" and choose Paint Shop Pro 7. PSP7 Opens, and it in turn opens up a browser window displaying it's default image folder and some sample thumbnails. My image does not get sent to the program and it doesn't open through the shell unless i open it manually through PSP itself (tedious sometimes).
It's not a problem with the file. It does this with any image and any image type. I can easily open the file with MS PAINT and it'll send the image to MS PAINT as it's supposed to.
Seems to me this funky browser thing is stopping the flow of the image being sent through the program. Anyone out there know a way to get rid of it? Maybe i've overlooked something.
And please... don't suggest i use Adobe because i don't like adobe!
This is what the helpfile says!
"Although you will not see the Browser when you first open Paint Shop Pro, it is an integral feature of the program. The Paint Shop Pro Browser, a tree-based browser similar to the Windows Explorer, is a visual file system that makes image file management easier and more intuitive. Use it to preview the images in a folder before opening them. "
... But i AM seeing the browser when i first open psp!
The only \"intuitive\" interface is the nipple. After that, it\'s all learned. ;)
