You probably need to reinstall the plugins
Nope I reinstalled and still greyed out?? Any ideas anyone?
These two situations will show all "Edit In" options greyed out-
1. There is not an image selected.
2. the selected image original file is 'missing' '!'
I reinstalled and still greyed out?
What did you re-install? Lightroom or the Additional External Editors?
Do you have Store Presets with this Catalog checked in Preferences. If yes uncheck this box, exit Lr and reopen Lr. Let us know if this works.
I reinstalled the plugins. I did move some photos but even the photos I did not move also don't work
Denis, We are going to need a lot more detail if anyone is to help your problem.
What plugins? What named? Where did you buy/download? How did you re-install?
Are they "Additional External editing Programs" or "Plugins"?
Your Operating system? Your Lightroom version number?
Location of original image files- internal/external?
Saying "...don't work" is simply not enough information on which to base an answer.
Nik Collection plugin. Is the latest LRCC update which I have reloaded and it now does not see any of my old files/photo. I think when I moved some photos I broke the index...I only moved old files and did not touch newer ones. I moved the older ones to an external drive. I know that one should use LR itself to move the files which I have always done ...but these were files/folders not in my catalogue.so I thought) . I think this is the problem I need to start a new catalogue and re-import my newer files that I want
Are you having problems finding your external editors in the Nik collection or are you seeing question marks or exclamation points on your images? Your original post says you are not able to find your editors. If you have the preference to Store Presets with this Catalog checked you will not see you Nik Collection - Read more here: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEw iJg6v717rUAhWKdD4KHZGCDJQQFggm…
If you've moved your images around outside of Lr you will need to tell Lr where they by clicking on the question mark or missing image text and relink them. Read more here: How to find missing photos in Photoshop Lightroom
Hi thanks for the help.
The problem is basically the moving of the images. I have solved the problem.
Thanks so much for the help
Great! Glad that worked out.
