I use this command all the time in LRC but suddenly I can't do it. Have had a browse in the community and have made sure that PS and LRC are up to date ... but still doesnt work.

Is this a new known issue.

Can anyone help?

Using a Mac

Thanks

Do you have marked two or more pictures in LR when you try to use "open in PS as layers"? Are the original pictures files available when you tried it? This doesn't work with Smart Previews only.

A first step is to try to reset the Lightroom preferences.

Hi Axel,

I have tried your suggestion but no success.

I don't get an error message, the option to open layers in PS is greyed out.

My PS 22.5.0 and LRC 10.4 are up to date. My OS is MacOS Big Sur 11.5.2

I am not an expert so it might be user error.

Thanks

John

It looks like this was user error. I was trying to open only one image, when I open two or more it works.

Thanks for putting me right.
