I use InDesign CS5 on Windows 7 x64. When I go into the Links panel and right click a linked image, I'd like to add "Photoshop" to the Edit With... menu.
Currently that list contains the options:
Now, I don't understand why such an obvious choice as Photoshop is not in the list. My "Edit Original" command is linked to Microsoft Photo Viewer by the OS. I don't want to change that association because when I browse a folder for photos (JPG) that I took with my camera or something rather, I want them to open in Windows Photo Viewer because it's very easy to go through them using the left/right arrow keys. I don't need every JPG to open up in Photoshop one by one. Therefore, I don't want to change the "Edit Original" command or its file association type.
I just want to add "Photoshop" to the "Edit With..." list. How can I do that - if at all?
PS: It just completely doesn't make ANY sense why would InDesign, Firefox, Flash, listed in the "Edit With..." list but not Photoshop. I can't actually edit images in any of these programs. Common sense rules...
Thanks for the feedback, but if that would've work, I wouln't have posted my question on the first place. In fact, that's another irritating part that the one you choose doesn't get added to the list.
I think the only way is to tinker with the registry. Thank you Adobe!
I've always had the problem the OP has. Just learned to live with it. I
wonder if it's something to do with the 64-bit version of Photoshop
being the defaul, and InDesign being a 32-bit app?
Win 7 64-bit
Don't think so... I also run Win7 64 bit and Photoshop is in my list of things to open with.
That said, it is also the default application for all raster formats -- I made the change away from Picture Viewer on my system. I suspect that's the real culprit, but I don't know why.
