Photoshop link not working in latest update

After the new update, when I select a photoshop image and or select it in the links panel and click on the pencil I get a error message that an "editor for this link cannot be found." Is there a fix or work around?

Thanks,

Joe

PS: Photoshop is updated as well.

 

AND THE WINNER IS: File associations. The dumb operating system had not associated a psd file with Photoshop. Go figure.

Steve, you da' man

Photoshop files can be in many different formats. Exactly what format is the file you're selecting in the Links panel?

Also: Please tell us what operating system (exactly) you're running. Please tell us (exactly) what InDesign version you're using.

Another question: When you updated Photoshop did you DELETE the older version of Photoshop? Did you actually open the new version of Photoshop so InDesign recognizes it? Might be a good idea to do that.

Windows 10-64 with latest update

InDesign 16.0  - 64

Photoshop 22.0.0

Image files saved as PSD

Yes and Yes on delete old programs.

Factoid: Illustrator files open OK with the pencil.

Thanks in advance for your help,

Jow

I just tested a file I had created in InDesign 2020. Opened in InDesign 2021 and saved the file (to save it in new format). Had no problem clicking a PSD file with the pencil icon in the Links panel to open it in Photoshop 2021.

 

Working on a Mac, if that makes any difference.

I'll delete preferences and see if that makes any difference.

Thanks,

I'm not a Windows user. Maybe a Windows user could make a suggestion. It may have to do with the way the file associations are set up on your computer.
