Livetrace - edit original in links

Feb 26, 2011 9:33 AM

Hi, I want to use the "edit original" function inside illustrator, so my picture will open

in photoshop, and the changes I make there will be saved in Illustrator. But when I choose edit original

, it opens paint - how do I change this? And yes I have checked the link-box when selecting the image. I have windows 7 if

it matters.

    You'll have to change that in your system and assign Photoshop as editor to the respective filetype

    Actually not. You could take a look at software like Gridiron Flow. Maybe it allows you to do that.

    The Op wrote they did not aways wan the images to open in photoshop.

     

    But You are close.

     

    before working with the file click on the icon and go to the properties as indicated before and select the photoshop as the default application to open the file in.
    But do not mark it to open all similar files leave that unchecked.

     

    Now the place it in Illustrator and then when you go to edit it will open in Photoshop, inconvenient yes, but the only way I know you have to remember to change the default launch app back to the original app.
