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?
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.
Thank you for the reply. But HELP! I followed the instructions for reinstalling but first removed PS CC and then attempted the reinstall. I even went back to Adobe to download a fresh copy of the software. It download successfully and when attempting the reinstall, I now have problems in that area. I click on the file “CreativeCloudSet-UP” and then it says initializing and then displays the Creative Cloud Apps Menu. It is blank! It shows no options whatsoever and I cannot install PS. What do I do now?
Thanks for your help,
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'm useing smart previews and I don't have the drive attached. I'll bet that's it.
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...
