I am running LR4 and CS6 on a PC, Windows 7 OS.
I would like to send a raw file (CR2 or .ORF) from LR using the "Edit In" mode to CS6 and have it open in ACR, or be able to open it in ACR. Is this possible, if so how?
I have tried a number of approaches, none have worked. Lightroom support told me I needed to uninstall LR and reinstall. Before that I thought I would ask the question here.
If you say Edit In and choose Open as Smart Object in Photoshop… it should open in Photoshop. When it arrives in Photoshop, double click the smart object in the Layer's Panel and it will open in Camera Raw.
Simply click on your thumbnail in the Library module and then click Develop. You will then save yourself the round trip. Develop is the same as ACR.
When you click Edit In, Lightroom will render an export copy for pixel editing based upon your handling settings in the external preferences tab. Clearly you don’t want pixel editing so stay in Lightroom.
