    No. Unless you are also using iPhoto which can result in duplicated images on your hard drive.

     

    But you can use iPhoto with PSE as the external editing application.

    Disadvantages as compared to what? The mac organizer still lacks some features found in the windows organizer, like the slideshow editor. Or do you mean disadvantages compared to using another photo editor on a mac?

    I use PSE11 editor but from the Lightroom Library. If you have a lot of photos in the iPhoto Library you may wish to set up PSE11 as the external editor.

     

    But you must also change your preferences in PSE11 by going to:

    Adobe Photoshop Elements Editor >> Preferences >> Saving Files

    Change the top dropdown menu to read: On first save Save Over Current File

     

    You should be able to edit in iPhoto by double clicking a thumbnail or edit in Elements using Cmd+Click (or choose Edit in External editor)

     

    The important thing to remember is after you finish editing in Elements to use Cmd+S (or File >> Save) and then the iPhoto library copy will get updated. If you use File >> Save As then you create a new file and iPhoto will know nothing about it.

    Also, you don't have to use either iphoto or organizer if you prefer not to. It's not like you must choose one or the other.
