New to cs6. Anything I import to make a layout comes in as a 'smart object'. How can I turn this off?
THanks. candyK

    If there's a cure for this, I don't want it!

I'm using CS5.5, but it's probably the same in 6:

Go to Edit> Preferences> General

In the box that comes up, uncheck "Place or Drag Raster Images as Smart Objects" (it's the last on the list)

Great answer Elisha! Let us know if it doesn't work Candy!

Thanks gals! I guess I didn't dig deep enough into the preferences.

I have this problem even though the box for "Place or Drag Raster Images as Smart Objects" is unchecked.

Everything was working well - windows 10 CS6 - and then suddenly every picture is a "smart object" when I open it.

That's not what I want. Something must have been clicked inadvertently.

Can anyone help me to turn back photo files to simple jpegs when I open them instead of smart objects?

Hmmm... I know how to turn the photos INTO smart objects, but not how to turn them back!

I'll poke around and see what I can find, but I'm sorry I don't know more.
