Have Photoshop AND LR as editors?
« on: May 11, 2017, 02:47:35 am »
I'd like to choose which editor I use when I edit photos - I sometimes use Photoshop but I also use LR sometimes. I know I can set one or the other as a default in preferences but can I set it up so I can choose each time? (It looks like I should be able to otherwise what's the point of the "Edit photo with..." option, but I can't see how). Thanks! Rich

Assign Specific Application to File Type: Click ‘Set...’ to assign different file formats to different applications. You might like to use Photoshop as the default but also set ImageReady to open GIFs and a particular RAW Converter to process NEF files. These options are shown when using the right-click context menu option on photos in the contact sheet: ‘Edit Photos with’. You can also use "Custom Editor" slots to be able to assign External editors as options that appear when you select 'Edit photos with..." from the menu.
