Cannot open Elements with "Edit In" on Lightroom

Aug 18, 2012 10:10 AM

I am unable to open PSE 10 when I select "Edit In" with Lightroom 4.

I have changed Preferences to PSE Editor. I have uninstalled and reinstalled PSE. I am using a MAC. Can someone please help me.

    The usual problem is that in Lightroom, under Edit->Preferences->External Editor, you need to have the application field point to <fullpathname>\PhotoshopElementsEditor.exe and not any other file, where <fullpathname> is the full path name containing PhotoshopElementsEditor.exe

    When you go to Edit->Preferences->External Editor, look for this part of the dialog box

    Click on choose, then find PhotoshopElementsEditor.exe in your file system, and click OK

    When you click on Choose, you have to navigate to the folder that contains PhotoshopElementsEditor.exe.

    On your computer, it is most likely in a different folder than mine, so I can't tell you exactly where to look, it is most likely somewhere in C:\Program Files\Adobe (or C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe). On your computer, depending on what options you have selected, the .exe may not appear.

    First you have to blank in the folderoptions  in the Windows configuration the setting for hide known extensions, the fifth from above in files and foldersFolder-options.JPGUnfortunetaly it's a Dutch version so you will understand why my English isn't that good. After doing this you will be able to see the .exe extension.

    I have done all those steps you mention prior to this post. The only difference is that my file does not have a .exe attached to it.  It just says Photoshop Elements Editor.

    I said specifically that the .exe might not appear if you have certain options set in Windows. If you have found PhotoshopElementsEditor, that is probably the file you should select.
