Howdy Clint,

What steps are you taking?  How are you trying to open them?  And then, what precisely are you seeing?

Screenshots would be super handy, if possible.

Can you post a screen shot of what you're seeing when you have 4 images open?

Hello Clint,  Without more detail it is a bit difficult to know if you have a PS problem or an operating system problem. David and Jeffrey assume that you have PS open and can see the names of the images in the bar near the top of your screen but nothing where the image should be, but it occurred to me that you might be still in the operating system and double clicking on the thumbnail representing the image and wondering why PS doesn't start.  It is possible to persuade the operating system to use PS to open images, but I often forget how and usually start PS and then use one of its Open commands to open each image.  Have you tried using a different program to open the file to be sure it isn't blank?

I got in contact with an Adobe rep who told me I did not have the current updated application. After down loading the new version, I was able to do what I had been attempting to do. Thanks for your interest in my problem. Clint
