How do I delete references to Photoshop as External Editor?

I loaded Photoshop CS4 as a trial, and subsequently deleted it.  I have Elements 7, and DxO Pro, which I would like to make my external editor options.  When I go to the External Editor Preferences page, the first option is Photoshop CS4 (not found), leaving only one choice.  Is there a way to delete the Photoshop CS4 reference, and have the two others as my options?

First off, you probably have to manually set the option to one of the other applications (eg Photoshop Elements). Adding additional editors should be self explanatory (see attached screen shot). To delete Presets you should open the Presets tab in Lr Preference panel. Towards the middle of the panel you should see a button labelled "Show Lightroom Presets folder...". Click on the button and Lr will take you to the LIghtroom folder. Look for the subfolder named "External Editor Presets" - deleting the contents of this folder removes all existing presets. You can also delete individual presets if this is all you want to do.

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • How do I make Photoshop the external editor

    I upgraded to snow leopard and now the "Edit in External Editor" option is grayed out in iPhoto. How do I choose Photoshop as my external editor?
    I tried opening the pictures in Photoshop, editing them and then saving them - but the changes don't show up in the iPhoto file. How can I save the changes to the iPhoto file?

    In the iPhoto preferences you set PS as the external editor - when you finish editing you save (not save as) - and the photos is returned to iphoto and the iPhoto database correctly updated to keep the original and the modified version
    iPhoto has the capability to directly interface with any external editor - simply go to the iPhoto preferences (iPhoto menu ==> preferences ==> General and set the Edit photo option to in external editor - select the desired external editor and you are set - now when you edit photos they are sent to the selected external editor and when you are finished editing you save (not save as) and the edited photo is returned to iPhoto, the original is maintained in iPhoto and the iPhoto database is correctly updated.
    If you want the option of editing in either iPhoto or the external editor after selecting your external editor simply set the edit in back to main window - now when you right click (control Click) on a photo you will get a menu which allows you to select either.

  • Photoshop as external editor, where do my edits go

    I am using iPhoto09 and have Photoshop CS3 set up as my external editor.
    I click edit in a photo in iPhoto and it takes me to Photoshop CS3 where I do my editing.
    I then click save which I believe is supposed to then put my edited photo back into iPhoto.
    How do I then access my edited photo in iPhoto?
    Spotlight tells me that the edited photo has been saved in my iPhoto Library in a folder called "modified" but I believe I should only access the iPhoto Library via iPhoto to avoid corruption.
    Another question, does editing externally in Photoshop affect the original file in iPhoto?

    Have a read of the Help on this, it explains it quite well.
    The link is the word "Help" up there on the Menu Bar.
    IF you're using RAW then you need to send the file to PS and then save the product to the desktop and import it to iPhoto as a new file.
    I just tried duplicating the image in iPhoto (which made another RAW file) and then external editing which I then saved as a JPEG in photoshop without changing the location.
    It then appeared in iPhoto with my edits.
    I suspect that you sent the jpeg preview to PS.

  • 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?

    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

    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).

  • 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.
    NB  Also posted in the Photoshop CS5 forum.

    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?

  • 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.

  • How do I delete all songs on an external drive?

    iTunes recently decided to scan my computer for addtional music and it found and added all the songs in a backup folder on an external drive. Now I have duplicates of over 2000 songs in my iTunes. I want to delete all the backups and use only the original songs on my hard drive in iTunes. Unfortunatly, I cannot tell them apart just by looking at them in the list view. To delete them manually, I have to "get info" for each song and check the "where" at the bottom to see which folder it is from. This is taking forever. Is there a way to delete an entire folder from iTunes, just like you can add a folder? Is there a way to display the folder address in the list view so I could sort by that and delete them all. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Thanks, I tried that, but iTunes also added a lot of songs from my hard drive on that same date that I do not want to delete. So I cannot just delete every song added on that date.
    OK, here's what to do. Unplug the external drive. (Nothing will change immediately about your iTunes library.) Next, sync your iPod. iTunes will tell you which songs it could no longer find, and also it will note them with an exclamation point. Then you will know which library entries to delete.

  • How can I use DxO 9 as an external editor in lightroom 5.3 ?

    I tried to follow the directions in help.  They were to: Open a photo and go to "photo" or "develop" tab in Lightroom.  Under  drop down,  find "edit in"  tab
    Then it lists programs but not DxO 9.  The help menu says "if not listed, just add it using a dialogue that lets you navigate to it".  There is no dialogue that lets you do that in Lightroom 5.3 tthat I can find!  How can I put my raw Nikon NEF files in Lightroom and then "edit in" to batch process the NEF raw files in DxO and store the raw and the tiff files in Lightroom?  Should I do that processing in DxO 9 outside of lightroom and then import both a folder of NEF raw files and a second folder of processed, converted to Tiff,files?

    I have been struggling with the  issue ( D610, lightroom 5.3 and DxO 9 elite).  My solution is going to be just to download to a subfolder of photos outside of lightroom, maybe call it "new folder" and have it contain new NEF files and a second subfolder called new tiff files.  Then use DxO to do whatever I want with the new nef files and save them as tiff files in a different folder.  You could also have DxO Export each treated Nef as a Tiff to lightroom.  I kind of think just using a new folder containing nef and tiff subfolders and then importing may be the be best way to go.  I still have to figure out how lightroom handles the changes in the photo now a tiff.  I also want to use OnOne perfect photo suite 8 as my primary editor for the tiffs rather than photoshop. Photoshop sets me nuts due to the complexity. I don't use any of these on a weekly much less daily basis so to remember all the complexities is more than I can handle. In the interim I bought the Laura Shoe videos as well as a set by George Jardine.  Hopefully they will shed some light. Took me a few hours just to figure out something so simple as how to get photo info to show up on the thumbnails!  I spent even more time deleting photo duplicates from the lightroom catalog and phot folders!  Now I also need to relable the subfolders since it split them all up by date and not names or initial folders they came from.  

  • 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.
