Using photos from iphoto in adobe photoshop elements

I'm new to the mac world. I do a lot of casual digital photography. I like to edit pictures and create things in photoshop elements.
I'm trying to make sure I'm opening photos from the correct folder in the iphoto library.
I think either using photos in the modified or original photos is the proper way? Any input.
Also, can I create new folders within the iphoto library (finder side) to better organize my photos? I had pictures broken down by month on my pc and iphoto seems to only group by year. It makes locating the proper picture in photoshop elements easier if the pictures are broken down by month.
I know I can use folders and albums within iphoto, but those catagories don't show up when trying to open photos in elements.
Thanks for your input!

Welcome to the Apple Discussions. There ias a caveat to using PSE with iPhoto. It is: if you create a layered file or do edits that causes PSE to want to save as a .psd file you must either flatten the file and force PSE to save as a jpg or do a Save As to the Desktop and import the new file. Subsequent edits to that new psd file from within iPhoto like Terence pointed out can proceed normally.
Using 2 Image Editors in iPhoto
If you want to use both iPhoto's editing mode and a 3rd party editor without having to go back and forth to the Preference pane, once you've selected the 3rd party editor as your editor of choice, reset the Preferences back to "Open in main window". Then when you Control-click on an image, you can select "Edit in external editor" in the Contextual menu to edit in your selected editor.
Do you Twango?
TIP: For insurance against the iPhoto database corruption that many users have experienced I recommend making a backup copy of the Library6.iPhoto database file and keep it current. If problems crop up where iPhoto suddenly can't see any photos or thinks there are no photos in the library, replacing the working Library6.iPhoto file with the backup will often get the library back. By keeping it current I mean backup after each import and/or any serious editing or work on books, slideshows, calendars, cards, etc. That insures that if a problem pops up and you do need to replace the database file, you'll retain all those efforts. It doesn't take long to make the backup and it's good insurance.
I've written an Automator workflow application (requires Tiger), iPhoto dB File Backup, that will copy the selected Library6.iPhoto file from your iPhoto Library folder to the Pictures folder, replacing any previous version of it. You can download it at Toad's Cellar. Be sure to read the Read Me pdf file.

  • Can anyone tell me how to get my pics from iPhoto to Adobe Photoshop Elements?

    Can anyone tell me how to get my pics in iPhoto into Adobe Photoshop Elements?

    Are you talking about iPhoto for iOS or iPhoto on your Mac?
    If iPhoto for iOS export the photo to iTunes. Then sync with your Mac and drag the photos out of the file sharing section of iTunes on your Mac. Then open them in Adobe Photoshop Elements.
    If iPhoto on your Mac then export the photos. I believe that's Menu > File > Export.
    Select export at full resolution and choose a location for the files. Once they have been exported you can open them in Adobe Photoshop Elements.

  • Can't send photo from iPhoto 9 to Photoshop Elements 10.0

    I just got a new iMac with Lion 10.7.2 and Photoshop Elements 10.0. In iPhoto 11. I set the preferences to use Photoshop Elements to edit photos. When I double click on a photo, Photoshop Elements Editor comes up, but there is no photo. There has been some discussion on this for earlier versions, but this is the latest available for both versions. I don't think I should have to go through hoops, trashing system files and stuff to get this to work.

    Thank you. It worked. And it also explains why I always got the Adobe Photoshop Elements welcome screen evey time I opened Photoshop from the Dock. I had the wrong icon in the doc as well.

  • Importing photos from iPhoto 11 into Photoshop Elements 9

    Hi,
    I am trying to import the iPhoto events into Photoshop Elements 9 Organizer. All the photos are imported into one single catalog. How do I import into separate catalogs in the Elements Organizer, just like separate events in iPhoto?
    Regards

    A question for Adobe's Photoshop Elements forum, I would have thought.

  • Problem importing photos from iphone3G via Adobe Photoshop Elements v7.0

    I have adobe elements v7.0 and an iPhone 3g running the new release
    iPhone OS.
    When I connect the iPhone to upload the photos I have taken on it into
    pe7 the import photos dialog box opens and then shows how many photos
    are there to import. But each thumbnail is blank and I get an error
    message that finally crashes pe7 without importing the photos.
    The same thing happens if I have pe7 open and choose to import photos
    choosing the iPhone as the attached device from the drop down list
    This problem has started since I downloaded the new iPhone OS 3.0 - before then the import into Elements 7.0 worked fine
    Is anyone aware of this bug and a way of fixing it?

    I, too, have experienced the same problem - but without full resolution. I chose to have PE7 automatically download the photos from the phone upon connection/syncing and have continued to experience the "fatal error" message. Even though I cancel the action when the "fatal error" show up (and the phone syncs without further problem), I believe that the conflict messes up something within the iPhone system. For the 5th time (and 3rd phone in 2 months), it appears that every time I try to use the camera shortly after receiving the "fatal" error problem, the phone ceases to work. It works just fine as long as I don't open the camera program. So - I am now trying to figure out how to get the computer(PC)/PE7 to not automatically download pictures upon connection and see if my suspicions are accurate. Any suggestions on that question are appreciated!

  • Resetting iPhoto to Open as Photo Manager vs. Adobe Photoshop Elements

    How do I reset iPhoto to open whenever I connect my SD card and have photos upload to iPhoto directly rather than to Adobe Photoshope Element's Bridge?

    would that be reverting to default?
    If you are referring to the "Revert to default" option for a modified photo--then no, that restores the "version" photo to the original "master" image. (I.e., modification of photos in iPhoto or Aperture is not applied permanently to the original photo so it unchanged in case you ever want/need to restore/re-modify it.)
    I am referring to the "Preferences" window under the main application menu. If you click the "General" tab at the top of the preferences pane, the window displays a "Connecting camera opens;" line with a "pop-up" that allows you to select which application (e.g., iPhoto, Aperture, etc.) is to automatically open when the digital camera is detected.

  • IPhoto with Adobe Photoshop Elements 4 and Adobe Bridge

    I have not used iPhoto before now as I have been downloading photos from my Canon and Nikon cameras using their software. I have now moved everything into iPhoto but cannot find iPhoto using Adobe Bridge so I am unable to do any editing using Elements 4. Previously I could find the Canon and Nikon photos using Adobe Bridge. With a simple click on the relevant photo it opened up in Adobe Photoshop Elements 4 and I was able to edit it. Now using Bridge I simply cannot find iPhoto thus I cannot use PSE4. Can someone help before I go crazy ? I havde called Apple support but they have been unable to help me and suggested using [email protected]

    Many thanks for your quick response although, as a new iMac user, the mere mention of the word "corrupt" scares me ! I previously used a PC with Windows XP and PSE3 and loved being able to sort all my photos into albums with PSE3. Unfortunately the PSE4 which I have installed on my iMac doesn't let users sort their photos into albums and the only alternative is Adobe Bridge. I only recently started to use iPhoto after a visit to an Apple Store and it's great being able to catalog my photos so easily. Unfortunately PSE is far and away superior to any editing software that iPhoto has to offer. Anyway, I'll cross my fingers and try your suggestion first thing tomorrow morning.

  • IPhoto witn Adobe Photoshop Elements 4

    Hi
    I wish to use Adobe Photoshop elements 4, in conjunction with iPhoto.
    So I would like to purchase a video tutorial to assist me in using Adobe Photoshop with Mac. However whilst I can find a Windows version of video tutorials, I have been unable to find a Mac version.
    Can anyone give me a Web address where I could find this software?
    One problem I am trying to overcome is that when Adobe photoshop is loaded, it takes up the full screen, I would like to be able to also have iPhoto on screen as well, so that I could simply drag photos straight to Photoshop for editing. Is this possible?
    Thanks for any advice.

    Can't help you with the first part of your query.
    However:
    so that I could simply drag photos straight to Photoshop for editing. Is this possible?
    If you drag photos from iPhoto then they are exported, and the changes you make will be to the exported file, not to the one in iPhoto.
    The correct way to use PSE with iPhoto is to configure it as an external editor. If you do this then
    double click a pic in the iPhoto Window and it will open automatically in PSE
    save a pic in PSE and it's saved back to iPhoto automatically
    To set a PSE as an external editor, go to iPhoto Menu -> Preferences -> General Pane. At EDIT IN from the drop down menu, choose Other app, then navigate to PSE.

  • Moving images from iPhoto 11 to Photoshop Elements Organizer

    I understand that iPhoto 11 kept all images within the iPhoto Library.  In order to move them into the Adobe Photoshop Elements Organizer, they must be moved to the hard drive of the Mac and then imported into Elements 12 Organizer.
    Is there any way to do this in one step?

    If you want to keep the photos organized by the Events they are currently in use this export setup:
    If you want to keep the keywords, titles and descriptions added in iPhoto change Kind to JPEG and set JPEG Quality to Maximum and check both checkboxes.

  • Videos from camera do Adobe Photoshop Elements 9

    I brought my pics/videos over to my computer from my camera using Adobe Photoshop Elements 9, and when I did this, I told the program to delete the pics/videos.  I've gone back through all of my pics and videos, and there is one very important video missing.  Can anyone tell me where it would've gone?  Since I had it delete off my camera, it's not there anymore, but I can't find it in Photoshop Elements either.
    Holy cow, it took me about half a dozen tries to even get to this spot where I can post this question!

    Yes, use the Editor
    File >> Import

  • Is it possible to send photos from LR 5 to Photoshop Elements 12 and directly get them opened in layers?

    I want to do Exposure Blending in Photoshop Elements 12 and I am wondering if it is possible to send photos (RAW) from LR 5 to Photoshop Elements 12 and get them directly opend in different layers?

    I don't use Photoshop Elements. Photoshop has an option to open images merging them to HDR. Does Elements have an HDR option? If it doesn't then I don't think there's any way to send the images layered.

  • Importing photos from iphoto to adobe bridge

    Ultimately I want to put all my photos on adobe bridge and use iphoto as a way to easily update my website. I did not know if there was a seamless way to properly take all of my photo files from iphoto and put them with adobe bridge.

    Here are some tips on using Photoshop with iPhoto:
    Using Photoshop (or Photoshop Elements) as Your Editor of Choice in iPhoto.
    1 - select Photoshop as your editor of choice in iPhoto's General Preference Section's under the "Edit photo:" menu.
    2 - double click on the thumbnail in iPhoto to open it in Photoshop. When you're finished editing click on the Save button. If you immediately get the JPEG Options window make your selection (Baseline standard seems to be the most compatible jpeg format) and click on the OK button. Your done.
    3 - however, if you get the navigation window that indicates that PS wants to save it as a PS formatted file. You'll need to either select JPEG from the menu and save (top image) or click on the desktop in the Navigation window (bottom image) and save it to the desktop for importing as a new photo.
    This method will let iPhoto know that the photo has been editied and will update the thumbnail file to reflect the edit..
    NOTE: With Photoshop Elements 6 the Saving File preferences should be configured: "On First Save: Save Over Current File". Also I suggest the Maximize PSD File Compatabilty be set to Always.
    If you want to use both iPhoto's editing mode and PS without having to go back and forth to the Preference pane, once you've selected PS as your editor of choice, reset the Preferences back to "Open in main window". That will let you either edit in iPhoto (double click on the thumbnail) or in PS (Control-click on the thumbnail and seledt "Edit in external editor" in the Contextual menu). This way you get the best of both worlds
    2 - double click on the thumbnail in iPhoto to open it in Photoshop. When you're finished editing click on the Save button. If you immediately get the JPEG Options window make your selection (Baseline standard seems to be the most compatible jpeg format) and click on the OK button. Your done.
    3 - however, if you get the navigation window that indicates that PS wants to save it as a PS formatted file. You'll need to either select JPEG from the menu and save (top image) or click on the desktop in the Navigation window (bottom image) and save it to the desktop for importing as a new photo.
    This method will let iPhoto know that the photo has been editied and will update the thumbnail file to reflect the edit..
    If you're editing RAW files from within iPhoto with PS you must save the edited version to the Desktop and import as a new file.
