Using photos in external editor...

1.) When you edit an iPhoto photo in an external editor does iPhoto open up the original jpeg file in the external editor or is a copy?
2.) When saving a PSP file to iPhoto, is it saved as a PSP file that will retain access to the layers if I reopen it up in Photoshop or is it saved as a non-layerd jpeg?
Thanks in advance for any help!

iPhoto always preserves the Original file, so it's a copy.
2.) When saving a PSP file to iPhoto, is it saved as a PSP file that will retain access to the layers if I reopen it up in Photoshop or is it saved as a non-layerd jpeg
Do you mean a .psd? If you import an psd to iPhoto it will be treated as a psd and preserve layers. Note though, that if your original was a jpeg and you're using Save As, this will be a new file, and that will have to be imported into iPhoto. (it's a new file as it's no longer a jpeg.)

  • New Photo in OS X option to edit photo with external editor such as Photoshop has been removed. will this be back!

    Hi
    I have just updated my iPhoto to Photos in OS X and i have noticed that the option to edit photo with external editor such as Photoshop has been removed. will this be back!
    Its now a pain to send a photo directly to my favourite photo editing software.
    Ross

    Thanks Terence
    Totally understand being a new app and not an update.
    So i'm a ammeter photographer and i like the way i can view my photos in iPhoto and i'm happy with the new App for this also, however i like to edit my photos in PS from time to time and i shoot in raw. As i can no longer select edit in external editor from the photo app i tired to drag a RAW photo to PS but this didn't work. i then tried dragging to desktop but this then made a jpeg so i loose my raw advantage. I would like to be able to find my original raw photos easily so i can edit them in PS.
    Hope that makes sense?

  • 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.

  • Does iPhoto on the iPad support the use of an external editor?

    I would like to use an external editor in iPhoto on my iPad, but can't seem to find anyway to do this.
    Is it supported?

    iPhoto for iOS is not quite like the desktop version. It does not have the ability to directly send photos to an external editor but the photos it shows are simply your camera-roll photos. Any photo editor app should have access to your camera roll and all your photos. When you save out an edited photo you'll simply get a new photo added to your camera-roll it will not repalce the original. As long as the editor app you are using saves out to the camera-roll iPhoto will be able to read those newly edited photos.

  • External edit function not opening photo in external editor

    Hi folks , hope you can help , my external editor function in lightroom 4 has stopped working ie It will open the external edit space but the image does not open in that space any ideas . Your help much appreciated

    You cannot use iphoto that way. PSE can't open photos from iphoto because if it were to write to your iphoto library it could easily corrupt it and cause the loss of all the images there. You should NEVER poke around in the iphoto library from outside iphoto.
    You have two choices:
    1. Set PSE as your external editor and send the photos from iphoto. Save, not save as without changing the name or format and iphoto will remember your last saved edits and the original, but you will need to lose the edits to revert back to the original. You will need to go to the PSE preferences>saving files and set On First Save to Save over existing to make this work. When you see the Save As window, something is wrong.
    2. Export the photos from iphoto, use file>open in the editor and make all the changes you want, then save your image in any format or with any name you like and import the edited photo back to iphoto as a new file. This lets you save as many versions of your photo as you like.

  • Using PS4 as external editor

    Hey guys,
    My question is concerning the presets in preferences for an external editor.
    I use PS4 and am wondering what is the deference between the tiff and psd selections.
    I have played around with both and notice the file size changes when I bring a picture back into aperture. There is also a huge deference between 8bit and 16bit. Also what dpi setting is a good all around setting. I am interested in hearing some different views on how you set this up and why.
    Thanks in advance for any advice.
    Blessings!

  • Edit photo in external editor with LR adjustment doesnt work

    Hi, Im on Win xp sp2 LR 1.2.
    When i try the "edit a copy with lightroom adjustments" i get a Warning and the following massage: "Lightroom was unable to prepare the selected file (name) for editing, It will not be opened.". Whats weird is that lightroom creates the file and its right there if i go to that folder, it just doest open the external editor to continue and edit the file.
    -Notice that "Edit a copy" or "Edit original" works! so there is a connection between the apps but it doesn't work with this option checked.
    I did a test and created a new catalog, added some pics to it and tried the same procedure and it works just fine, so that leads me to think that its a catalog related problem but thats why im here, to ask you guys.
    -Ive read other posts of the same Warning Massage but its not the same problem im experiencing.
    Have a catalog of 25000 photos, im sure its not a lot to some but it has all sorts of collections and tags and colors (u know, the usual mess) so i wanna avoid going into "export as catalog" feature and re-import my catalog all over again.
    Maybe its a registry problem maybe not.
    Any help is welcome, thanks.

    I have no idea, but have you tried File / Catalog Settings/ General tab: Relaunch and Optimize. Relates to the database.

  • Saving PS CS3 files when used as an external editor

    When I open an image through aperature with PS as the external editor it makes a copy of my image and saves it in my library when Im done in PS which is great, but when I take that same PS edited file, open it back up in PS and attempt to save another PS version of it in the aperature library with the "Save as" command it does not show up in my library anywhere. If I go to the aperature library folder I can find my additional saved PS images in the correct library folder, but they do not show up in aperature.
    Does anyone know a way to be able to save additional PS files in the aperature library?
    Thanks!!

    Thanks for the help. Only problem still is that if I do it that way and import the edited saved Tif or PSD file back into aperature my PS layers and settings are erased when I try to reopen that PS file with the external editor through aperature. Unlike the original image duplicated in aperature when using PS as the external editor which I can continue to open and reopen from within aperature and be able to access all my saved PS layers, mask, adjustments, etc.
    Sorry if this isnt making any sense

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • Using PSE13 as external editor with iPhoto w/MAC OS

    Upgraded from PSE12 to 13 and now unable to use PSE13 as an external editor with iPhoto on a MAC OS V 10.9.  Have reinstalled and no change.  Preferences in 13 differ from help for older versions.

    Are you sure you are choosing the correct file? In recent versions adobe has hidden the actual editor away in the Support Files folder in the PSE folder. The file at the top level is just an alias for the welcome screen. You want this file:

  • 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

    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.

  • Editing iPhoto photos in external editor, i.e., PSE

    iMac running Mavericks OS.
    From iPhoto, when I click a photo to edit in external editor (PSE), I am taken to the pse editor, but my photo is not.
    Why is the photo not appearing?

    Because you chose the logical file instead of the correct one as your external editor. The PSE icon at the top level of the PSE folder in Applications is just an alias for the welcome screen. The actual editor is buried way down in support files:

  • Using Aperture as External Editor in iPhoto

    I have selected Aperture as the external editor in iPhoto (iPhoto preferences), because I am happy with the way iPhoto handles files, with no confusion, but I love "brushes" in Aperture.
    Once I have edited an iPhoto picture in Aperture, how do I save it back to iPhoto? The only way I have found at the moment is to export it to the desktop from the Aperture editor, and then import it back into iPhoto. Sort of clumsy, when I get it from iPhoto to Aperture editor with one click.

    Once I have edited an iPhoto picture in Aperture, how do I save it back to iPhoto?
    You can't.
    Like iPhoto, Aperture is a database, not a pixel editor like Photoshop.
