What version of Photoshop? Photoshop CS5/CS6? Photoshop Elements?

What OS?

Does the file have a proper extension like tif or jpeg or psd?

Hi Jeff,

I am still in CS3 and have Snow Lepord as my operating system. All has been working well until a couple of months ago. I use random extensions mostly jpeg and sometimes tif and I store photos in psd so they can be adjusted to a new program. I have been using PS for ten years and I have a library full of old versions. Yes, I need to up date to Lion, but being a video editor, doing it to soon gets on into serious trouble with people such as Adobe, Epson, and you name it. I am about to update to Lion but as you know Apple announced Mountain Lion is due soon. Can't win.

I was told my preferences have gone sour. How does one reset preference back to the original settings? Or is there another fix. Or,,, should I just reinstall the program?
