Who mostly uses a photoshop to editing images, if they want to open an image file then they use file > open from photoshop menus..
Me 2 mostly use photoshop for editing images but im lazy to open every image from photoshop's open menu, so i edit some keys in my most favorite registry editor to add context menu for open jpg/jpeg to photoshop directly....
and made my context menu something like below image.. look it...



Now im giving you settings for this hack...

1] Start > Run > regedit> hit Enter
2] Registry > My Computer > HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT > jpegfile
(if you not found this key then Find it from edit> Find> n tick to key only)
3] jpegfile > shell > New Key (by right click)
4] Then name this new key as 'Open in CS2' or something like you want to set
5] Select 'Open in CS2' > add New Key again > name it 'command' (case sensitive)
6] select '(Default)' from right side pane > Double click to modify value
7] enter value as [ C:\program files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS2\photoshop.exe "%1" ]
(means - your photoshop application path and "%1" with quotes )
8] refesh desktop n check any jpg/jpeg image files context menu

Download jpg-cs2.reg.txt file , rename this txt file as 'jpg-cs2.reg' and merge it..

I cannot grab multiple files and open them this way. For example if I highlight two jpgs and use your commandin the context menu, it will only open one of them. Any thoughts on how to enable this? Thanks

@Lester,
if photoshop is already running, then you can select n open multiples jpgs.
if ur photoshop is not running n ur trying to open multiples jpgs then it open only one jpg

try it :)
