Alternatice Edit photo app?
« on: August 31, 2011, 11:06:54 AM »

PM 4.6.7. on Windows 7 Ultimate Dell D830 laptop

Hi gang,

I notice when I right-click on a photo I have the choices of Edit photo and Edit photo with but they both currently launch  the same application. I would like to have a default app for "Edit photo" and be able to populate a list for the "Edit Photo with"

Please let me know if this is possible.

Thanks,
-Bob

Yes, open up Photo Mechanic's Preferences dialog, click on the Launching tab and then click on the 'Set...' button that is preceded by the text "Assign specific editing applications for each file type:" and there you can choose an editor for each file type PM supports and up to ten editors that will be optionally listed for any file type.

Page 146 of the Photo Mechanic manual explains this in a bit more detail:
