LR5 - Edit In Photoshop is greyed out [was: Lightroom 5]

Jul 13, 2013 3:11 PM

I have Lightroom 5 and when I right click on the image and select "Edit IN", Photoshop is grayed out.  All of the options for selecting photoshop is grayed out.  How can I fix this issue?

    Maybe this helps: http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/multi/edit-photoshop-command-missin g-photoshop.html

     

    But before you try to edit the registry re-install Photoshop (not Lightroom!)

    Editing the registry is a dangerous thing  - if you make a mistake Windows might not start next time you boot.

    I`m sorry I can`t help you with that. I am not a subscriber to CC and don't know the ins and outs of that.

    There is a special forum for questions regarding installation and setting up of programs from the CC. I suggest you post your question there. This is the link:

    I suddenly have the same problem in Lightroom 5. It worked yesterday, but all "Photo / edit in" optons are greyed out today. I didn't do any updates or change any preferances.

    Certainly originals must be online to edit in Photoshop - dunno if that's OP's problem or not. Note: if you really *do* want to edit (a reduced-rez copy of the original) in Photoshop whilst original is offline, then just export to catalog as DNG, so no re-compression, then edit that instead - that may be the next best thing *iff* it's really what you want to do...
