I am experiencing two problems in Lightroom 4.3
The first is that when using an external editor ie Photo > Edit In > Elements 9 .... elements editor is launched but the image is not transferred into the Editor.
The second is that Lightroom does not recognise files I have edited in Elements and have saved to an external hardrive. It reads some of the tiff files but not, others similarly with Adobe photoshop files.
Any ideas please
I don't know the answer to your first question, maybe someone will jump in here, but I believe if you search the forums you will find the solution, as its a common problem.
Regarding your second question, can you give us more information? What do you mean "does not recognise"? Is there an error message? What types of files are not being recognised? How are you asking Lightroom to "recognise" these files?
There is no message. When I am working on images I put them into a file called 'workroom' When I try to import a file from workroom Light room does not recognise all the files which are there. For example it recognised two tiff files and an adobe photoshop file but did not recognise two other tiff files a jpeg and two adobe photoshop foles. I concluded it was not the file type which was a problem but perhaps I am wrong.
Hi, thanks for your help. My mac is new but elements 9 of course is not. I could not find elements 9 editor or indeed support file you shown in your attachment. I think elements 9 either does not have it or the download was not correct. I did reinstall it but still no file.
I have however solved the problem by downloading a trial of elements 11 and setting it as the external editor in Lightroom, so I need to buy the update.tough but here goes.
The other problem I had in not getting Lightroom to read files from my external hardive may well be associated with the fact they are already in my catalogue albeit in an unaltered form. and different name I need to pursue this one further.
In the meanwhile very many thanks for your help, its good to know that there are people out there prepared to put time in to help others. Great Job

The editor for PSE9 must be present if you (re-)installed the software. Your probably not looking for it in the right place, and hopefully some Mac person can give the exact folder name where the PSE9 editor application is located.
