When I want to start photo shop I go to "open" and select my image. In the first preview menu it shows just blue & yellow colors. My images are shot in RAW why won't it give me the actual picture preview?

The preview in the OS open dialog is from the OS, the thumbnail saved with the file, or a third party thumbnailing utility.

So, the OS or utility my not read the file correctly, or the thumbnail is corrupted in some way.

Which version of Photoshop are you using?
Which version of Camera Raw?
Which OS version are you using?
