Hi All,

 

I'm having trouble working out how to export to / edit in photoshop as layers, from lightroom, I'm able to edit in one image at a time, but when I select two images I'm greyed out of the edit in Photoshop button?

 

Can anyone see where I'm going wrong?

 

Cheers

Andrew.

Sounds like you are using Lightroom desktop, the version of Lightroom that uses the cloud for storage. Lightroom desktop does not have an option to open multiple images as layers in Photoshop, only Lightroom Classic has that option. You can open them individually in Photoshop and then in Photoshop place them as layers in one document.

Thanks Johan,

 

Great help, I'll stop trying to work it out now and as you say place as layers separately. 

Cheers,

Andrew.
