    HELP: Images are Opening Up in Portrait Professional

    I insert my SD card in card reader and put on my desktop these images in a folder on my desktop. When I go to Open an image from my folder on my desktop it automatically opens with Portrait professional. How do I get the images just to Open and see them. Thank you I appreciate any help with this

    Mac or Windows? If Mac right click on the file, choose "Get Info" and then under "open With" enter your program of choice.
    If Windows I forgot since I haven't used Windows since 1998

    It sounds like you probably have it set as your default photo viewer.

    If you're on Windows you can right click on any image > Open With > Choose Default Program and pick which one you want to use.

    If on a Mac, you can quick look any JPEG, TIFF, PNG, and PSD by clicking on the image in the Finder then pressing the space bar. Same action works for many raw files as well (I've tried DNG and ORF).

    If you press the up- or down-arrow keys, you can walk through the contents of a folder. If you select a group of files and then press the space bar, you can also click a grid button in the quick look window and see the group as thumbnails laid out in a grid.

    You can open all the same files with Preview.app for viewing too...
    There are many ways to "just look at the photos."

    Hi Godfrey, you helped me last time with this problem. But now I purchased a Sony A99 and I tried what you recommended before but with this camera. When I try to go to Preview it say" Preview Does Not support this file ( ARW) Raw
    Hope you can help me out or any other forum member.

    Unfortunately, if the raw file isn't supported, it can't be opened. If you're on an older version of OSX or the RAWCamera framework, you'll need to update. Check for compatibility on the Apple website...
