That's not a problem I've heard before. What prevents you from opening another file?

Have you installed all the Photoshop and OS updates?

What sort of troubleshooting steps have you already tried? (resetting prefs, disabling third party plugins, etc.)

I am not a computer person in the tech side! I can open one file and work on but as soon as i close this file and go to open another one the file I try to open once highlighted I have no option to open it! The only option if I right click is to open it in iPhoto.

Hmm. I had one of the support folks try to repro with iPhoto 11, CS5 and Lion and they weren't able to reproduce the problem. Have you tried iPhoto and specifying another external editor (Preview or other) to see if it's able to open more than one file for edit?
