I'm actually using it for this application:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web_Development/Web_Languages-Standards/PHP/Q_27291199.html

I'm manipulating .jpg files

Not sure which of the above would fit best for that.

Everything works fine on my web server, I just want to process the files locally.

Take a trial of PHPEd it will help you a lot.
Else PHP is just a set of files, always the same depending the version
So choose a good IDE, PHPEd is a very good one

So, I installed phpED, but I'm having trouble.

In Visual Basic, I usually issue the command:
WebBrowser1.Navigate ("http://website.com/myfile.php")

Now, since I have it local, I thought I could do:
WebBrowser1.Navigate ("C:/directory/myfile.php")

But it does not run the php, it simply displays it as a text file.

check the link provided :

Add the location of the PHP executable (php.exe, php-win.exe or php-cli.exe depending upon your PHP version and display preferences) to the PATH environment variable. Read more about how to add your PHP directory to PATH in the corresponding FAQ entry.

php.exe should be under phped folder

the easy way to run it (php.exe) is to go to the folder and run from there (in this case you need to specify the full path to test.php of course)
