PSE12 as a Lightroom External Editor

Oct 23, 2013 12:35 PM

I have just purchased & installed PSE12 and want to use it as a external editor with Lightroom 4.  I have set up LR4, but when I ask LR4 to edit a photo in PSE12, the PSE12 Editor opens but no image appears.  I had an older copy of PSE8 set up this way, and the editible image appeared just fine.  What do I need to do differently?  In LR4, I have PSE12 set-up as an additional external editor with PSD format, 8 bits, Adobe RGB (1998) and 300 resolution.  I am working on an iMac running OSX 10.8.5.


Thanks in advance for any help with this

    In Lightroom, where you set up the external editor, you need to point the the PSE12 Editor app executable and not the PSE12 application itself. As I am not a Mac user, I cannot provide the exact details.
