Could you please let me know the file format that you are trying to edit in Photoshop Elements.
Also please try with a different file type, like jpeg or tiff.
When I select a photo in Lightroom to open in Photoshop Elements (i.e. in Lightroom I chose "edit in"), PSE 13 OPENS but the photo is never there. I have looked and looked in PSE 13 for the photo from Lightroom and I cannot find it.
Exactly what does this mean "the photos is never there"? Does this mean the editor in PSE opens and there is no image? Or does some other part of PSE open (welcome screen or organizer)? Or something else?
Are you sure you have linked in Lightroom to the PSE 13 Editor .exe file and not any other PSE 13 .exe file?
Tanuj, thank you for your response. I have attempted to open both JPEGs and PSDs in Elements 13. Again, PSE automatically opens when I select "edit in" but the photo doesn't seem to be there.
dj_paige, Hmmmm. On my Mac when I go to Lightroom Preferences I went to Applications, then I picked PSE13 and then I selected the icon for the actual program. I didn't see a chose for Editor versus something else.
Could you please uninstall and reinstall Photoshop Elements once and then check.
Under step 2, you need to be sure that you are selecting the PSE Editor application, and not the general PSE application or the PSE Organizer application. This document describes the exact details for PSE 14, but it's the same for PSE 13. 99jon tech: Setting up Photoshop Elements 14 as an External Editor
Took me a while to navigate to the Editor and when I selected that, it solved the problem. Thanks dj_paige. This has frustrated me to no end as on the internet you hear the interface between the two
programs is seamless.
