image in Adobe Photoshop by double-clicking it or dragging it to
the Photoshop icon, Photoshop opens, but the image does not. If
this has been bugging you, here is the answer:
problem occurs when the "Adobe Unit Types" file is missing
from your Mac OS X library folder. This is most often caused by
performing an Archive and Install method to upgrade to Panther from
an other version of Mac OS X.

you've performed an Archive and Install recently, there may be a

If the folder "ScriptingAdditions" does not yet exist
in your Library folder, you can create it yourself. Make sure to
use the exact spelling shown in this example (no spaces). If you
can't find "Adobe Unit Types" on your hard drive, you
can download a stuffed copy of the file here.
#2: Reinstall Photoshop CS.
Photoshop CS places the missing "Adobe Unit Types" file
back where it should be, thus fixing the problem.
