Is that started happening after the latest update for Lightroom. Please close both Photoshop and Lightroom and reset Lightroom preferences back to default.
Press the shift + option keys immediately after you restart Lightroom, and select Reset Preferences from the resulting dialog box.
Let us know if that helps.
Many thanks for your prompt reply.
I did reset preferences as you suggested. Sorry but it didn't make any difference!
I find that Edit in PS works when I select to Edit a Copy or Edit Original but I get nothing when I select to Edit a Copy with Lightroom Adjustments.
This is pretty frustrating as it stops me in my tracks and takes time to do my own tests and checks.
Would appreciate any further suggestions you might have for me.
By the way I am on Spanish time at the moment.
An addition to my previous email of a few minutes ago.
I also find I get the same results if I try the same action with an UN-edited (i.e. as shot) photo in LR. It will load as an Original or a Copy of an Original but it won't load as a Copy with LR adjustments (which, in this case, it doesn't have). Curious!
We Apologies for the inconvenience caused to you, our team working on this issue to get this fixed asap.
Thank you for your patience's
Once again, thanks for the reply.
A further clue might be:
When I open a photo (with Lightroom Adjustments from LR to PS) as a Smart Object, it does open in PS and does appear with the LR Adjustments. BUT IT IS NOW A SMART OBJECT; not what I wanted in the first place.
Hope this might help.
Now my LR Adjustment Brush has stopped working!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Have reset Preferences. This makes no difference.
What exact type of image are you working with?
The only time you get that dialog box, Edit Copy with or without LR adjustments or Edit Original, is if you are working with a non RAW file.
Do it work with RAW files? Does PS open and load the RAW image?
I can not reproduce your problem. With all functions (except the Open as Layers bug where PS has to be open first or Manually opened after you call up the Open as layers option) it work as expected. With TIF files I get that dialog box with all options available and all working. With RAW files PS opens and the image gets loaded.
This is on a Windows 7 SP1 desktop computer.
And the lack of other posts specifically describing this problem it must be related to your computer. Could be a permissions problem but I suspect it is more than likely a hardware problem.
First place to start is run a memory diagnostic program like Memtest86.
Thank you very much for your interest in my problem.
I did the Memtestx86 operation as you suggested and the result was, 0 (zero) Errors.
I’ll go through the symptoms of my problem again with a little more information included.
I open Lightroom (LR) and then in it I open an image (the result is the same for CR2s, TIFs and JGPs). I modify the photo (or not – it makes no apparent difference) and with a right click on the image I select Edit in and then, in the next window, Edit in PS…! Photoshop then opens and… nothing further happens. No image, no further texts, nothing!
Going back to LR, if I right click on the image, select Edit in (and then in the resulting window) select Open as Smart Object in PS, the image opens as a smart object. Then, in order to be able to edit the image, I first have to right click on the image layer and choose to Rasterize Layer so that I can then proceed to process the image in PS.
I can open and edit a CR2 directly with Photoshop. This process does not seem to be affected by the Lightroom problem.
A fresh development that I have now noticed is that when I close the image in PS I am left with a message which reads:
Error 2: Photoshop is undefined.
OK (a button which clears the message and its window).
I suspect that this error is closely linked to the problem.
Again, many thanks for your interest, and if this helps you to better understand my problem, I might be lucky enough for you to come up with something that can narrow down the causes of this annoying glitch.
What is the exact version of PS you have installed. Please don't say "The Latest". We need to know the exact version.
I suggest you uninstall PS and then reinstall. something isn't right with the current install.
The version is:
Photoshop 2015.5.0. Release
2nd reply to your email:
I have reinstalled PS and I'm pleased to report that everything seems to be working fine now.
