I just did the recent update in Photoshop CC to 2015.5 and again for the third time i can't open images in photoshop while right clicking, the possibility for photoshop is missing. Again i searched the internet all over and decided this time to collect all infos about this issue and get them together in a explanation that is supposed to be understood by every one. I did a little video as well to demonstrate this fix, please read the instructions in order to understand the video i don t know hoe to add sound... https://vimeo.com/172278308
