When you first install Macromedia Fireworks 8 if you right-click on an image, you can select "Edit with Fireworks" right under "Open." I just installed some software to go with my new Canon camera and the Edit with Fireworks option is no longer on the list that pops up. The only way for me to open it in fireworks by right-clicking would be to go down to "Open with..." and that just isn't good enough. Does anyone know how to restor this feature? Thanks

Just go into the properties of dreamweaver, and set all the files. It has a list of files you can set it to open different files with different applications. Just checkt hat

I did that just now. They are already set correctly. I think that means if you select a file from within the dreamweaver window what program do you want it to open for the file. Any other ideas? Thanks!

Yes one more idea
I don't remember how to access it but if you are talking about on your computer, I have that problem too, there is a way to set your computers default usage for each type of file, not sure how to do that exactly anymore though/

I'm quite sure there are registry enteries for those menu items - Can't remember exactly where they are though. Google should be able to help you out I would have thought.

when you right click > open with > choose program

and choose the program you want to open the file with, when it successfully opens, the program is supposed to from then on appear on the 'open with' menu

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

Yes when you select if from the open with window it is always there. But that's not what I'm looking for. I want it to be right under open where it is suposed to say Edit with Fireworks. And yes akitchen, I think that was a little more than I wanted. Nice article though.

Any more ideas? I mean I could always reinstall it but I thought there would be an easier way.

There is an easier way which is manually adding the Edit with Firworks option to the right click menu on a gif file for example. You can do this by doing the following:
1. Open up a Windows Explorer window, such as open up My Documents.
2. Now go to Tool > Folder Options
3. Select the File Types tab.
4. Search for a image file extension such as, GIF, in the Registered File Types area and left click on it
5. Click the Advanced button underneath the Registered File Types area
6. Now the New.. button
7. In the Action textbox type in Edit with Fireworks 8 or whatever version of Fireworks you have
8. In the Application used to perform action textbox click the Browse button. Now in the file browser window navigate to Fireworks.exe file. The path to file should be something like this:
C:\Program Files\Macromedia\Fireworks 8\Fireworks.exe
9. Now click Ok.
9. Click Ok in the Edit File Type window
10. Click Appy in the Folder Options window and click the close button after. Now go to a gif file and right click on it. You should see the Edit with Firworks option and when you select that option the images should open up into fireworks for editing.

NOTE: You will have to repeat all the steps above for each and every file extension you like to open up in Fireworks, for example JPG, BMP etc.

I got to about step 7 and couldn't find the textbox you were talking about. I am using Windows XP Professional. I don't know if that makes a difference or not. But I fixed it already. I just went to add/remove programs and clicked on repair. Thanks for all your help and suggestions!
