I am running CS5.5.
I Just started a new project. I made a title in Photoshop CS5 I imported it into my Premiere project dropped it on the time line and it works. But when I tried to Edit Original the command is grayed out.
Well I am doing that but it is a pain. That isn't how it worked in version 5.
Is this another we will fix it later problem.
Adobe seems to be haveing a lot of that maybe they should I don't know TEST IT FIRST
SOB! Boy is my face red!
I never even saw that! It is right there and I didn't see it!!!
I have been using the Edit Original for years do I just go for that. But still IT's RIGHT THERE!!!
Damn I guess I better get my eyes checked.
And I do not have a suite I just have PS & P a very old After Effects but the PS and P are both in the CS5 group.

I anticipate that this points to why Edit in Photoshop is not available to you. As Jstrawn asks, do you have Production Premium, or Master Collection - one of the suites?
Edit in Photoshop is a close-cousin to Adobe Dynamic Link (ADL), and needs the suite, to be effective. Same for Edit in Audition, or the ADL to/from AE and En.
Without the suite, if one just has stand-alone programs, they do not normally communicate with each other, though there might be some exceptions.
Just tried this on a system with an older version of PS installed, and you are correct. So long as the PSD file affiliation is set correctly in the OS, I got Edit in Photoshop - was not grayed out for me.
I have re-phrased my response to make it NOT sound like having the suite is a requirement for the 'Edit in Adobe Photshop' option to appear.
If you have Photoshop stand-alone installed you will still get that option, in most cases. It just needs to be able to see that Photoshop has been installed. However, I've run tests where I had the suite installeld, installed a later version in addition to the newer suite version, and then upon choosing 'Edit in Adobe Photoshop', the file opend in that later standalone version of PrPro because the OS had changed the affilliation to that version upon install.
I know that there are also cases where the affilitation has been inadvertently set away from Photoshop altogether. Knowing that the user has installed the suite (or both standalone prodcuts of the same version) virtually eliminates that possibility. But in this case, the user was just not seeing the menu item.
@ welchphoto... Perfectly understable mistake. I've done that too. I'm just glad it we could solve it quickly for you.
