Correct the link in Registry(Windows) or correct the plist file on Mac: 'Edit In Photoshop' command missing

Try to deinstall Lightroom and Photoshop, run the Adobe Clenaer Tool and install the programs again.

Have you moved the image file?  What version of Lightroom?  What version of Photoshop?

Moved image files from without Lr (finder on mac / explorer on Windows) opposed to from within Lr is the #1 cause of 'Edit In' being disabled.

Being signed out of PS could also be a cause.

Some Reasons for "greyed out" that I know-

1) The Photo is 'missing'  Lr shows a ! on the thumbnail, or a complete folder is 'missing' showing a ?.

2) There is no image selected. (Not often seen, but is possible by Ctrl+D )

3) Lr only has access to a Smart Preview. (Full size original file must be available to Lr)

just had the same problem.

will try the solution. but have to say: if you ask customers to re-install all the software, this is a major bug and should be handled with a bit more "sh_t, we are sorry"... i am angry right now, because i pay for this software and now i have to go through this....

Have you checked the three points I mentioned on 26/12/2017 above?

They will still apply even if you re-install LrC & Ps!
