I recently converted from Lightroom to Lightroom Classic and find that all the programs which were in my "Edit In" option are not there. How do I get them back?

My SOP for a Manual addition of External Editors 🙂

 

1) In Preferences- External Editing

Look in-  Additional External Editor section-

(*ignore any named editor already in the Preset box!  Do not type anything here.)

Click on [Choose]

2) In the Finder/FileExplorer window that opens navigate to the App/exe program where it is installed.

Highlight the App and click [Choose] at the base of the Finder window.

(Mac systems, Apps are likely found in your "Applications" folder.)

(Windows Example: To add Photoshop 2020 as an Additional External Editor- navigate to-

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop 2020\Photoshop.exe)

3) You will see your chosen App/Program.exe name appear UNDER the Preset box : 

Application:  ......Program name 

 

4) Set up the options for the type of file that your External Editor needs.  That could be a JPG 8bit  or something else.

5) ***Now- the 'tricky' part!  Click back on the Drop-down menu at the end of the [Preset:] box, and select {Save current settings as a new preset...} from the drop-down menu.

6) Type a NAME for the preset as you would like to see.   Then click the [Create] button.

 

7) Done.   You have another editor listed in External Editors from the [Edit-In] menu.

I assume you are talking about external editing, in third party programs like NIK, Topaz, On1, Luminar., Aurora.

 

Easiest way is to reinstall those programs. Thus, reinstalling the plugins. Some, and I am referring to Luminar and Aurora have in their menu an option to install the LrC/PS  plugins.

 

Other way is to manually add them, the programs support pages probably have directions.

 

Perhaps another member has a SOP on the manual method
