"Thank you. I got the alpha view enabled, but jpegs saved as progressive still open as black. I can get around this problem by not saving in progressive, and other photoediting programs do not seem to save in progressive, but it does appear rather…"

"As far as i know the default JPEG save preference in Photoshop is standard baseline - that is in Windows versions anyway. Saving a JPEG as progressive in Photoshop CS5 on my Win7 64bit opens perfectly in SA4."

Nora Laiken replied to Nora Laiken's discussion Problems With Opening Certsin JPGs
"I now have part of the answer to this problem. If I save a file in CS5 (Photoshop) in the "progressive" jpg mode, it opens as a black screen in SA. If it is saved in the standard or optimized jpg mode, they open normally in SA. I must have…"
