Lightroom "Edit In" not opening images in Photoshop CC

Prior to today, I could right click an image I was editing in Lightroom Classic CC and select "Edit In" and then "Edit in Adobe Photoshop CC 2018..." and it would open an instance of Photoshop CC, if one wasn't already open, and then open a TIFF called "<image filename>-Edit<ordinal>.tif" with all my Lightroom edits and what not.

This evening, after updating Photoshop CC, when I right click the image in Lightroom and select "Edit in"and then "Edit in Adobe Photoshop CC 2018..." it will open Photoshop CC but will not open the file...it just stops at the Photoshop Recent File list.

Does anyone know how to get this linked back up again?

I have the following versions:

Windows 7 Professional - SP1

Lightroom Classic CC 7.4 (Camera Raw 10.4)

Photoship CC 15.1.5

Thanks,

-Scott

Did you try to go through menu?  Photo > Edit In > Edit in Adobe Photoshop...  ?Try maybe launching Photoshop prior to sending an image from Lightroom to Photoshop?

After updating the Ps version did you relaunch Lr?

Is this happening always? Are you seeing any dialog box after clicking on Edit in->Edit in Photoshop CC 2018? Is this happening on a specific image format?

Venkatesh Penjuri, Thanks for replying!

Yes, this is happening always.  There are no dialogs or other notifications between clicking the menu item and Photoshop opening.  However, sometimes while Photoshop is opening I see a brief flash of the familiar Photoshop workspace before the Recent Files list replaces it.  This tends to only happen during times when my computer is running slower than normal.  All the file formats I'm using are NEF files from a Nikon D610.

Thanks,

marer1976, Thanks for replying!

Very strange.  No, I did not try going from "Photo > Edit In > Edit in Adobe Photoshop...".  So I tried it just now and it worked as usual, not sure why that worked but they ya have it.  Thanks!

Thanks,

I'm having the same problem. I just upgraded all software and now can't open lightroom images in photoshop. When I try to open from lightroom I get a message that the file could not be edited because Adobe Photoshop 2022 could not be launched. Adobe Photoshop does in fact open when I do this but no image comes. up. I have tried opening using photo > edit > edite in adobe photoshop but that doesn't work either. After a delay of a few minutes I then get a message saying "lightroom was unable to prepared the selected file xxx for editing. I will not be opened." I click Ok and after a delay the image eventually opens. This all takes several minutes.

I'm having the same problem loading LrC files to PS2022. Same problem whether I try with a right click or from the Photo menu. Any ideas? It only happens when I select "Edit a Copy with Lightroom Adjustments". The error does not happen with I pick either of the other two options.

Check your PS version. It should be 19.1.5 not 15.1.5.

Otherwise uninstall and reinstall PS all done from the CC desktop app.
