picture it

  highside 15:40 12 May 2005

I have two photo editing applications one of which is "Picture It". Why when I open "My Pictures" in Win XP does the system always default to "Picture It" when it opens the photo for editing. How do I change the default to the other program?
Thanks for any help.

Find a picture the press shift and right click on it Open With...Choose Program, then find the program you want and tick the box at the bottom then click OK.

Why press shift?

Appreciate your replies but I want the whole application to default to a different image editor without having to select individual photos each time?

As AndySD said:

Right click a picture file, select Open With. Click Choose Program and select the program that you want to use always. Tick the box that says Always use this program for opening this type of file.
