When I was processing in LR3 and chose CS5 as my external editor. Anything I had process went directly into PS. Now when I process and go into PS, what ever I had done previously in LR4 does appear in PS. Images looks like I never had done anything in LR4. What am I doing wrong?
If you are trying to transfer without rendering in Lightroom, it's because you don't have the right version of ACR installed. The right version at the moment is ACR 6.7 RC available in Adobe Labs.
Using LR4, Edit in Elements 10. Unexpected error performing command: bad argument # 1 `lower` (string expected, got nil). In LR3.6 it is OK to edit in Elements 10, and i have used the same settings in LR4. I install LR4 again, but it don`t work. I use win. 7 64. I use TPG Elemental in LR 3.6 and LR4. I deinstall TPG in LR4 but it did not help. What to do???

I have a 64-bit PC, but when I'm in Lightroom and open files to edit in photoshop, it opens the 32 bit version instead of the 64 bit version. Any idea why. I've updated default programs to Photoshop 64
When I'm in lightroom and request to edit in photoshop, I get the following message: This version of Lightroom may require the Photoshop Camera Raw plug-in version 7.0 for full compatibility. Please update the Camera Raw plug-in using the update took available in the Photoshop help menu. First off, I'm not opening a RAW file. 2nd, I've been to the help menu and it says there are no updated available. I never received this message prior to upgrading to Lightroom 4.
Note that on my LR4.1 interface the above Help file isn't quite accurate. As I installed 4.1 I made the mistake of attaching the external editor status to the 32-bit version of Photoshop. It is not true that Preferences allows me to reverse that. I had to add another external editor, pointing to the different executable:
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CSX\Photoshop.exe (where "X" is my "5" version)
and when I did LR gets a bit huffy and throws a dialog box at me twice. Thank you Rick Flohr who also contributed above, for pointing out why I was getting the 32-bit PS when going for an external editing ession in PS.
Are you responding to my input or the original question? In the original request ACR versions are open to question. In my response above, late in the thread, the particular software called is the issue.
As noted, I used my "secondary external processor" assignment to get the right version of Photoshop to open from the Lightroom menu. I *would* like to know how to remove the simpler first external editor asignment but have found no way to do that.
When I tried to edit in photoshop cs5, and choose the first option, there should be a copy of image with .PSD created in LR. However, the PSD file was not created and PS open a JPG file not PSD file. I have already make the right setting tin the preference, and choose PSD type. Where is the problem and how to fix it?
