After the latest update, lightroom edit in photoshop command opens photoshop with the home screen but it does not open the picture.

I use macbook pro. The library files are in the local disk and the pictures are in a LAN (network) drive. I've always worked like that perfectly.

What is the exact number of your "Latest Update"?

Do you mean update to LR and PS?

What happens if you try to open files from the local disk, not the network?

The first thing to try is to open PS first before sending image over from LR. This had been a problem with Windows apps, but not so much with Macs.

Another thing to try is turning off the home screen in PS preferences: General - check the "Disable Home Screen" box.

Tried disabling the home screen and opening PS before doing "edit in..." in Lightroom - nothing is happening.

It worked earlier - BEFORE i applied the updates to both Lightroom and PS.

Same here since last update. It happened before, a couple of updates ago, but then I found that if I opened Photoshop before I sent the photo from Lightroom, it worked. No this trick doesn't work anymore. This problem has been happening for years.  Come on Adobe!!!

Hey! I had the same issue just now after doing the Photshop 2020 update with the Camera Raw 12.2 upgrade. It wouldn't render my lightroom images in Photoshop and was just giving me a black pasteboard. I reinstalled the Camera Raw 10.5 installer and that worked! Here's the link to download the Camera Raw installer. Hope it helps!

THANKS!  Reinstalling the older Camera Raw 10.5 (overriding the latest version of Camera Raw) did the trick for me, too--thanks for the link.  🙂

I have the same bug with Lightroom 9.3 and Photoshop 21.2.1 and Camera RAW 12.3
When I run the command in Lightroom to edit the selected image in Photoshop, Photoshop opens but it does not open the image. Strangely enough, after about 30 seconds a window opens in LIghtroom with the message: "The file could not be edited because Adobe Photoshop could not be started". After clicking on OK, the selected image opens in Photoshop.

With Camera RAW 10.5 everything works fine!!!

I have a new PC, everything installed from scratch.
Win 10 X64 pro 2004, 64GB Ram, CPU AMD X3950, Nvidia graphics 1070

Ich habe den gleichen Fehler mit Lightroom 9.3 und Photoshop 21.2.1 und Camera RAW 12.3.
Wenn ich in Lightroom den Befehl auslöse, das markierte Bild in Photoshop zu bearbeiten. öffnet sich Photoshop aber es öffnet sich nicht das Bild. Merkwürdigerweise öffnet sich dann nach ca. 30 Sekunden ein Fenster mit dem Hinweis: Die Datei konnte nicht bearbeitet werden, da Adobe Photoshop nicht gestartet werden konnte. Nach Klick auf OK öffnet sich dann das ausgewählte Bild in Photoshop. Mit Camera RAW 10.5 funktioniert alles reibungslos.

Ich habe einen neuen PC, alles von Grund auf neu installiert.

Hello, a client is experiencing the same problem with Lightroom Classic. When choosen "Edit in Photoshop" using the menu there is no reaction at all. When he right-clicks on the Photo (either in the Library Module or in the Develop Module) it opens Photoshop but nothing happens. The image is not opening in Photoshop at all.

 

Lightroom Classic 9.3 with Camera Raw version 12.3. The independant Camera version is 12.3 as well (checked using Adobe Bridge). All the apps are up to date and the original RAW-file (NEF in this case) is accessible. With DNG-files same problem. Camera is a Nikon D800.

 

@Adobe this is clearly buggy behaviour! Not everyone has this problem. Please fix this
