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?

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Error message when using Photoshop Elments as editor

    Hi,

  • 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.

    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?

  • 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 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 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!

    Little Lee
    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?
    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.)

  • 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!

  • 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.
