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.

  • 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.

    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?

  • Can I change the file path that itunes reads my music files from? 65000 files trying to be transferrd from external to internal HD. I dont want itunes to manage my collection, just read it. thanks

    Can I change the file path that itunes reads my music files from?
    I have about 65000 music files that i have transferrd from my external to a new laptop internal HD.
    I have organised the folders myself as I use a PC and do not want itunes to organise the folders because when I'm searching through music on windows it is sorted out by artists/albums with 'the...(eg  The Beatles)' under 'T' instead of 'B'.
    Long story short.... Is there any way that I can keep my itunes library as it is on the external HD and copy it to the new laptops C drive, keep all the info (playlists etc) and still have the same folder structure as on the external HD?
    Or, is there any way of making windows sort things in alphabetical order like it is in itunes (eliminating the 'the' issue)?

    The files that weren't inside the media folder on the original machine need to be copied over to exactly the same paths as they had on the source machine. See this thread for an ongoing discussion of a similar problem. See also this post on migrating the iTunes library.

  • 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!

  • 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).

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Customizing filename when using an external editor - can only one filename be used by all editors?

    I have a number of external editors defined for my LR 3.3 Win7 application. Within my Preferences, when I customize how an editor, say, Photoshop CS5, handles a file, I can set the name of the edited file - e.g., {Filename}-ed.psd . However, if I change the edited filename for another external editor, say to {Filename}-SilverEfexPro.psd, that filename is used for all externally edited files. What am I doing wrong? Thanks!
              Dilip

    A side note here; just because it _opens_ the file in your external editor with that name the first time, doesnt' mean that's the name it has
    to be saved as.  When you go to save it, select save as, instead of save.  I beleive I have used this technique before, and LR still "finds" the file. 
    Sometimes even when I don't *want* it to find the file!
    Cheers!
