I've seen a couple of threads about this in other forums. Were these PNGs shared via MS Teams? Long shot but that seems to be a trend.

Otherwise you can try going to Preferences/File Handling and disabling the "Prefer Camera Raw" option.

There seems to be something in Teams causing these files to change their code indicating that they are RAW not actually png files specifically.

I have encountered the same problem with png files downloaded from Google Photos. I have made the 2 changes suggested in this thread (Unchecking Prefer Adobe Camera Raw for Supported Raw Files and amending JPEG Spoort to Disable JPEG Support) but still it opens .png files in Camera Raw. This has only started happening in updating to PS v24 (Windows)

Can you zip up a PNG (just posting png to this page may resave the file and affect the ability to reproduce) and post a URL to the zip using CC files or dropbox, or something similar to share the file.

Hi Jeffrey,

Sorry for delay in responding, my spam filter grabbed the notification of your request.

I have created a folder on Google drive at the link below. In it is a zip file containing 2 png files. They started out as the same file (a screenshot of my iPad homescreen). Firstly I emailed it directly to my PC - PS can open this without any problem. I then put the same file from my iPad into Google Photos and batched it up with some other files and downloaded onto my PC - when I open this from PS it opens in Camera Raw.

Thanks for your help

Nigel
