second editor option please
« on: December 04, 2017, 03:14:20 pm »
In preferences I have my default editor set to Lightroom, as that's always my first port of call to edit images. However, once they are edited and resized I sometimes like to pull them into Photoshop to make other changes. I wish there was an option to have a second editor with maybe a slightly different shortcut (shift or alt added maybe). Is there already a way to do this, or could this be added? Thanks

It can already be done:

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.

Great thanks, had looked a few times and somehow missed that option!
