Double click in contact sheet to edit - or open in Photoshop
« on: March 04, 2019, 03:49:56 AM »
Is there a way to set Photo Mechanic to open an image in Photoshop - or edit simply by double clicking in the contact sheet?  I'm sure I used to have it set to do this, but can't find for the life of me how to set it again.  The only options I can find in the Preferences are to open a new contact sheet with a double click.

Thank in advance for your help.

Those two bits of documentation will explain everything related to working with an external editor better than I can.

HTH,

Yes, thanks I'd seen those.  Unfortunately it still doesn't answer my question.  Thanks anyway.

Even after setting Photoshop as one of your editors, you can't send photos to it with any of the methods documented in those links I gave you?

Maybe I misunderstood your question?
