    Link to InDesign

      Hi all,


      Does InDesign link to Elements as it does to Photoshop? in other words, can you right-click a graphic in InDesign and directly open the original file in Elements as you can with Photoshop?

          Hi Ross


          I’m not sure it’s possible as Adobe In Design has a CMYK workflow and PSE doesn’t support CMYK. Obviously you could use RGB images and graphics and edit them in PSE and convert in ID but I don’t think you will get the integration you need.


          You will possibly find more help on the ID forum.

            Thanks for that Jon. Looking at Help for ID CS6 on the Internet however says that ID uses the OS to determine what application to open a placed graphic in. Hence, if I've got Elements as the default app for the graphics, then opening a graphic up directly from ID's Links panel should open them up in Elements. Help was pretty clear so I don't think I need to repost this question on that forum.
