I haven't made this mistake for years, though recently I came across a few picture files that I can no longer open because when I renamed them before saving, I used a period or some other key to denote the file from the original. Is there any way to open these files? Or are they prety much done for. I'm currently using CS-5. I always save files as PSDs unless I'm going to e-mail it, then I'd save as j-peg.

Thanks in advance. Jim H.
