I am working with the latest versions of Photoshop, Lightroom & ACR. A couple of weeks ago I noticed that the links to Photoshop from Lightroom were all grayed out. for example when I right click on an image and select "Open With," it and all of the rest of the links to Photoshop are grayed out and inaccessable. I have been using Photoshop since v2 ansd Lightroom since v1. My operating system in Win 7.
I read some related messages in the forum and followed advice to uninstall and reinstall Photoshop to reestablish the links. I spent about two hours doing that yesterday. when I was done the links were back and functional. I left the compluter on all night to make sure everything was backed up. This morning I opened Lightroom (64bit) and attempted to open an image in Photoshop for editing. All of the links were grayed out again.
So today I uninstalled and reinstalled Lightroom. Still no luck.
Please, if anybody has insight regarding this issue please let me know.
Personally I'd try Photoshop again after the Lightroom reinstall, just so I'd done it in both Orders. Photoshop>Lightroom and Lightroom>Photoshop. I had to do this ages ago and it worked. YMMV. Otherwise look at deleting the preferences files.
I have also just noticed this problem. When I try to "Edit in Photoshop" it is greyed out, I recentlly had a problem in Bridge where I couldn't open psd files into PS, in - edit/prferences/ file associations, all the the list had "none" beside them so I had to browse to Photoshop exe. and re-instate them seperately because when I tried to "Restore Defaults" the complete list disappeared. I was wondering if this is connected to the above problem so if anyone can help it would be deeply appreciated.
Well I wish I could say that my issue was fixed but it is back. After reinstalling PS the links worked. During the same session, after leaving the computer for a while and coming back, the links were broken again. I am at my wits end and can't imagine myself reinstalling Photoshop several times a day. If I can't get a resolution I will have to eliminate Lightroom from my workflow.
