Chapter 1.  Exploring the Basics  > Setting File Associations

Setting File Associations

The File Format Associations dialog box appears the first time you use Paint Shop Pro. The File Format Associations determine which files your computer opens automatically using the Paint Shop Pro application. Your system now thinks that PSP 8 is your application of choice to open those images.

For example, a friend e-mails you a .tiff photograph that you want to edit. By creating the Paint Shop Pro association, all you need to do is double-click the photograph file. Paint Shop Pro then opens with the image ready to edit. You can associate Paint Shop Pro with up to 60 different file formats.
