Color Profile Options using Photoshop as External Editor

Dear Folks:
When I open an image in Photoshop as external editor, I get these choices:
- use the imbedded profile (instead of the working space)
- convert documents colors to the working space
- discard the embedded profile (don't color manage)
I'm using Photoshop 7 and iPhoto 5. My Camera is a Canon Powershot S410. iPhoto seems to retain the sRGB IEC61966-2.1 working space from my camera.
What choice do I want and why?
Is there something odd about my camera?
Thanks!

Which version of Windows are you using Walterono?
Also, have you tried resetting Lightroom's preferences and trying again?
Do you get the same behavior?

  • Using Photoshop as external editor

    On a 64 bit machine with the 64 bit version of LR installed, evoking Photoshop as external editor still incorrectly opens the 32 bit version of PS, not the 64 bit as used to happen with LR4. One can work around this if one remembers to open the 64 bit version of PS beforehand, but still, this is surely an easy bug to correct.

  • Photoshop File Save useing Photoshop as external editor

    When I open a file using Photoshop CS2 as the external editor within Aperture 1.1 I can't save the file and view it in Aperture. I get an error message in Photoshop: "Could not complete your request due to a program error". I have to do a "save as" and import the "saved as" file into Aperture. This is true whether I try to save as a PSD file or as a TIFF.
    Does anyone know how I can save files in Photoshop and view them as a version in Aperture?
    Tom

    These files were imported into the Aperture library from folders of pictures on my hard drive and then exported from Aperture to Photoshop for editing. When I try to save the edited files in Photoshop, (which is supposed to automatically put it back in Aperture) I get the photoshop error mentioned in my original question. Aperture may be able to read TIFF and PSD files, but that doesn't help if Photoshop is unable to save the exported Aperture version back into Aperture. It appears to me that this is a photoshop error message due to some sort of incompatibility with Aperture. That's my guess, but it still does not solve my problem.

  • I am using Photoshop as external editor but can't use all the filters

    Hi,
    I have just started using Aperture and have set-up photoshop CS2 as the external editor. I'm trying to add film grain to some of my images using the artistic filters. If I open one of my RAW (EOS 5D) images in Bridge once open in CS2 all the filters are available for use.
    If I select a RAW image in Aperture and use the open with external editor feature, once the image is launched in CS2, half the filters are unavailable. Why is this and how do I over come the problem? Is it because Apertur opens the file in a funny format?
    Many thanks in advance for your help

    a few filters will (or have already) changed in cs3, however most remain the same in terms of 8 vs 16 bit. filters who are based on the rgb channels will be "grayed out" in the filters menu if an image has 16bit colours (regardless of tiff or psd of course).

  • Using Photoshop as External Editor in Aperture

    I'll be switching from PC to Mac soon. I use Photoshop to do all my editing. The database mgt tool for my PC does not have a Mac version, so I'm hoping Aperture 3 will fit my needs. I now make three versions of a photo - the original, a "working" version and the final version used for prints (I sell the prints). The PC file names are the same except for CAM or WORK or FINAL added to the end of the file name. Here is what I do. I find the original version (CAM) in the database and start PS and open the file from the DB program. I make my changes in PS and do a "save as" in PS with the WORK or FINAL in the new name. The new file will be added to the DB. So, now there are 2 DB entries - the original and the final along with 2 seperate files.
    From what I read, Aperture doesn't like the "Save as" in PS. If I do a "Save" in PS, won't that just update the original file? How can I save the modified version as a new file (with all layers, etc.) and have it added to Aperture?
    Looking for HELP!

    When You use PS from Aperture, then Aperture makes a new version (a new file) that pass to PS.
    When You save from PS don't change the name, the file will be updated with all the variations made in PS (if You want, also with layers).
    This file is recognized in Aperture as a new file.
    In fact You have two files on disc.
    If You use directly PS without pass through AP, then You have two files, but the new file (made from PS) must be imported into AP.

  • Where does my saved file go after using photoshop as external editor

    Okay, I understand that when I have a 30MB picture file and edit with photoshop afterwards, I click on Save and back into aperture i'm left with a 175MB picture (bigger or smaller sometimes), but my question is this:
    Since i'm working with all referenced images that have been stored on my external hard drive, after i make the edits and the file size explodes, does aperture save that large file in the aperture library, or to my external drive?
    I keep my aperture library file on my computer, but the images on an external drive.
    Should I make a new library file and store that on an external drive also?
    The whole point of using referenced images is to save space on the main computer, but if it's saving a file that's 6 times larger onto my computer instead of the external drive, it kind of defeats the purpose right?
    Thank you all for your superior technical wizardry and support! I appreciate everything!

    You can test this for yourself, but I just tested with a new Project, importing to Aperture to remain at the currently location, editing a photo with Photoshop. The Tiff that Aperture first created for PS to edit was created in the original folder, and not in the Aperture Library. The edit, when Saved, was made to that new copy in the original folder location, and thus in the external location.

  • When using photoshop elements as editor in iPhoto the pic does not show up when PS opens

    When using photoshop elements as editor in iPhoto the pic does not show up when PS opens

    Ralph9430 offers a good suggestion.  But you may need to do this before taking his advice:
    Check in iPhoto's Preferences (which you can open from the iPhoto menu).  Look in General, and make sure "Connecting Camera Opens" is set to "Image Capture").
    If it is set to "iPhoto", you won't be able to get to Image Capture easily.

  • What is "FND : Diagnostics %"  profile option used for ?

    What is "FND : Diagnostics %" profile option used for ?
    How is it different from "FND : Debug%" profiles ?

    I guess my above update was misleading (Sorry for that) .. Please find below more details about (FND: Diagnostics) and (FND: Debug Log Enabled):
    Both profile options are used to configure logging, the difference between them is (FND: Debug Log Enabled) is a database profile option used to configure logging while (FND: Diagnostics) is used to configure logging to screen.
    Logging to screen provides:
    - The ability to enable logging on a per HTTP request or per HTTP session basis.
    - Dynamic configuration which does not require restarting any servers or changing any log profiles.
    - A convenient lightweight mechanism to diagnose performance issues. Each message is timestamped to the millisecond.
    If Logging to Screen is enabled, then the Java log messages generated for a particular HTTP Request-Response are buffered in memory and appended to the end of the generated HTML page.
    This feature does not affect any existing configurations of file or database logging. File or database logging continues to behave per the configured middle tier log properties and/or log profile values.
    Note that this mechanism currently provides only Java layer messages. Regular file or database logging should be used if messages from other layers (e.g., PL/SQL) are needed.
    In brief ..
    FND: Diagnostics (Self-Service) --> To see this, Login as that user and navigate to self-service, Click the Diagnostics link in the upper right corner
    - Default = “No”
    - Recommendation = “No”
    - Requires APPS password to use Examine function
    - Usually set to “Yes” during development

  • Problem using Aperture as external editor for Photoshop CS5...

    I am having trouble using Aperture as my external editor for Photoshop - if, for example, I select twenty photos and choose "edit in photoshop CS5," for some reason or another, only ten or twelve photos will show up. Some photos are always missing, and there seems to be no rhyme or reason to it. Has anyone else noticed this? It is really frustrating and slowing my workflow down immensely. Any words of advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi Casey.
    First lets make sure we have the flow going the correct way.  You are using Aperture, and use PSCS5 as your external editor (external to Aperture).  Right?
    Second, what size are your Masters?  When you use PS directly (not calling it from Aperture) do you regularly open twenty files at a time?
    My Masters are about 25 MPix each.  PS sizes them in the 140 MB range.  Opening twenty of them at once -- for me that's about 3 GB of data -- will probably bog things down.  Does the problem occur if you open just, say, five at a time?  What's your hardware?  How do you have PS set-up?
    And -- my top suggestion for improving your work rate: do in Aperture as much of the work as you can, and send out to PS as little as possible.  You don't say what kind of work you are doing, but Aperture, for many, suffices for almost all of there photograph processing needs.

  • Photoshop as external editor: can I change TIFF file options?

    I've set up Aperture 2 to use Photoshop CS2 as an external editor. When I save the file it is added to my library (like I expect) but it's a 57 MB file. (16-bit TIF).
    Is there a way to edit the file in Photoshop and then save it in a reduced size, so that Aperture will still recognize it? I tried doing a Save As… and picking ZIP compression, but Aperture seems to have missed that file and only seen the uncompressed one. (I wrote on the picture so I could easily tell which version I'm looking at in Aperture).
    I can always export and re-import, but it would be nice to have this working from within Aperture.
    When working with Photoshop I usually use ZIP compression, which Aperture handles, and sometimes convert from 16-bit to 8-bit for the final product (when it won't be printed). I'd like a way to send the files to Photoshop in 16-bit and get them back into Aperture in whatever format I like, in just one Aperture step. Is this possible, or will I have to Export Version, then Import and manually stack?

    1. Aperture doesn't support ZIP-compressed TIFFs, just uncompressed and LZW-compressed.
    2. Aperture is only looking for the file it created - if you 'save as' into a new file Aperture has no way of knowing about that file.
    You best bet is to reduce to 8-bit, then save as using LZW compression - but save over the open file.

  • Illustrator vs Photoshop RGBs / What color profile to use for an online publication that is also to be printed?

    Hi, I have been correcting the colors of a franchise company logo that is to be used for print, as well as online media.
    I created EPS files in Illustrator using Pantone colors, and I will be providing these for professional printing (signs, brochures, business cards, etc.)
    I have also converted these files to TIFF files through Illustrator, using CMYK, and will be providing these for in-house/desktop printing by business owners.
    I have also converted these files to RGB for online usage.
    When opening up the RGB files into Photoshop in order to work them into a publication template, I noticed the colors (which seem pretty true to the Pantone values I remember in Illustrator) were picking up as different RGB values from the ones provided to me from the marketing team. (The PMS color I was given was 280C, my file picks up as RGB 0-72-144 in Photoshop, and the RGB they gave me is 0.43.127) I understand that assigned Pantone colors can appear different than the RGB conversions when viewed on screen together (seeing that Pantones are printed, RGBs are on screen...I'm assuming the Pantone colors, when printed, should appear close to the RGB on screen versions...right?) Anyway, I changed my original RGB values (0-72-144) that were created from the original Illustrator values to the ones provided by the marketing team (0.43.127) just to play it safe.
    Firstly, please let me know that all of this is correct, and that I am provided the owners with the correct types of files and color profiles dependent on the jobs.
    Secondly, I am also to produce a publication using the logo that will be distributed online (RGB), but needs to also be able to be printed, in the case that the business owners would like to distribute it via hard copy as well (CMYK/Pantone)... need I provide them two variations of the same document (one for online, one for print), or is there a color profile that can be appropriate for both uses?
    Forgive me, as I only know the basics of these color profiles, and don't quite yet understand the way they work together.
    Thanks!

  • Elements 8 Organiser will not load Photoshop as External Editor

    For some years I've succesfully used Photoshop CS2 with Elements (various versions) Organiser as my photo file manager.  The Organiser allowed me to select Photoshop as the external editor and subsequently accepted/managed the edited photos from Photoshop when I closed the file there.  (I prefer the facilities of Organiser to those of Bridge; and other folk in the household prefer Elements Editor).
    I recently upgraded from Photoshop CS2 to CS5 64bit.  Initially Elements 8 Organiser (which is 32bit) continued to call up Photoshop (CS5) as the external editor but has now ceased to do so.  There is still an option in Organiser's dropdown EDIT list to "Edit in Photoshop" and any thumbnails selected in the Organiser get the "being edited" label applied if I select the "Edit with Photoshop" option.  However, Photoshop does not open;  or, if I have Photoshop open already, the photos selected in Organiser do not appear in the Photoshop workspace for editing.
    I cannot, either, find the "close external edit" option in Organiser. When I eventually close Organiser, it warns that I will lose any editing done with the external editor to those photos it thinks it has handed to Photoshop, even though there has not been any handover in fact.
    I can chose, in Organiser, to edit the very same photos with Elements Editor, even though Organiser appears to think that they are currently being edited by Photoshop.  If I do edit such a photo in Elements Editor then close it, the Organiser becomes happy and forgets it thought Photoshop was involved at all.
    Is there some switch in a config file somewhere that I can throw to get the Organiser to actually call up Photoshop and hand it the file(s)?  Or is this just an Adobe glitch?  Any help or clues would be much appreciated.
    Lataxe
    NB  Also posted in the Photoshop CS5 forum.

    Graham,
    I have tried to persuade Elements Organiser to reconsider Photoshop as an external editor by going to the "Editing" section of Elements Preferences dialogues and specifying Photoshop.exe.  However, no matter which version of Photoshop.exe I point at (64bit CS5, 32bit CS5 or even the old 32bit CS2) Elements tells me that it automatically already has Photoshop as an external editor and I don't need to specify it as such.
    On trying to exit the Preferences/Editing dialogue, Elements then pops up another dialogue box that tells me that "The path you chose for the external editing application is invalid.  Please correct the path or choose another external editor".  I need to uncheck the "Use a supplementary editing application" to stop this box re-popping.
    The Elements EDIT drop down menu still shows Photoshop as an available editing application.  However, as described in the original post, Photoshop does not load or pick up any file specified for Photoshop editing within Elements Organiser.
    I've also tried resetting Elements Organiser Preferences to their default.  This does not make any difference to the problem either.  There is an Organiser glitch I think.  I am begining to think it will need a Registry fix ..... but of what I have no real idea; and it isn't a good idea to mess with the Registry in a haphazard way.
    Perhaps I should try a reload of Elements from scratch, after saving my Catalogue file somewhere safe?

  • IPhoto: No option to edit in external editor

    I'm running iPhoto 08 under Mavericks on my MacBook Pro. The option to open photos in an external editor is grayed out when I right click on a thumbnail in the main window. In another post I read that in order to do this you first had to select the editor in the advanced preferences settings pane and there was a picture showing that option. That option does NOT appear in the advanced preferences pane on my computer. I have looked pretty carefully at all the settings I could find, preferences and otherwise, and cannot figure out how to open the images in PhotoShop, or any other external editor for that matter. What am I missing?

    You first have to select the external editor in iPhoto's General preference pane:
    If you haven't selected an application that line will read something like "External Editor". Click on it and go to your Applicaitons folder and select the editor.

  • Which color profile to use, if any, for web?

    Hi,
    For years, I've been accustomed to saving JPGs for web use by including the sRGB color profile.
    However, I now realize that IE either discards color profiles, or forces a new one on them (took me this long to notice because while I always proof-check my code through IE, I never paid close attention to image colors 'til now). Meanwhile, Firefox actually uses the ones the JPGs were saved with, so I see the exact same thing in Photoshop as I do in Firefox.
    Anyway, as I was saying, I just noticed the colors are very different in IE. In fact, trying to match a hexadecimal color value with a JPG is pretty much impossible as long as both IE and FF interpret JPG colors differently.
    As a test, I tried saving a JPG with no color profile included. Interestingly, it showed up near identically in both FF and IE.
    Which begs the following question :
    Why the hell have I been using color profiles all this time? :-(
    Another observation I made is that the Adobe RGB color profile more closely resembles the No Color Profile state than sRGB does (sRGB is a lot less saturated color-wise).
    So what is it I need to do now?
    1. Go over the entire website and re-save all images with no color profiles.
    2. Go over the entire website and re-save all images with Adobe RGB color profile.
    The goal here is that I want my hexadecimal color values to match what's on the JPG (for example, when a gradient ends and goes to a flat color state, I'd like to be able to fill that region with a hexadecimal color value instead of using more images needlessly... but for this to be a seemless transition, everyone needs to agree and match).
    Thanks.

    I've been doing something completely different.
    To the extent that a color needs to match or be like a color that is a background on my website (which is the usual issue I run into with color differences), I make a .PNG or .GIF file and use transparency. That way I don't get the problems associated with color profiles and web safe colors.
