How to change file associations on Mac OS X?

By default PNG images open in Preview. At some point, this has changed on my system so that clicking on a PNG file launches Paintbrush. While that's a really nice app, I'd still like the default to be Preview. How to change it back? (I formulated the question title to be little more generic — how to do this for any file types?)

"Get Info on the file in Finder (⌘I)
Find the ""Open with:"" section
Change the application to the one you want
Click ""Change All…"" to apply the change for all files of the same type."
