How to edit jpegs in Raw Editor from Photoshop Organizer

I was unaware that we can edit in the Raw Editor, from jpegs.  (go to normal edit - then Alt -Ctl - o, or File - Edit in Raw.)  However, I use Organizer all of the time and it then asks for file name.  What is this?  Any simple way to get to Raw Editor from Organizer with a jpeg, as I would like to try it. Thanks..

You are right. There is no way from the organizer to tell if you want to open in the editor or in the ACR plugin. In much older versions, there was an add-on from @johnrellis which added that choice (openinacr).

In the current state of the organizer, the file opens either way depending on what is stored in the jpeg file metadata. If that file has been previously opened in ACR from the editor (or another Adobe software like the full Photoshop) then it will open in ACR.

So, if you want to open non raw files like jpeg, psd, tiff, the solution is to

- open a batch of those files in ACR from the editor

- Select all and apply a common edit (I recommend 'auto')

- select all and click on 'Done' to exit.

Next time, those files will open automatically in ACR directly from the organizer.

 

Note : Have a look at this:

(no longer works with recent PSE versions)

Regarding the very old EditInACR, mentioned by Michele and which doesn't work in PSE 9 or later, the help is here:

https://johnrellis.com/editinacr/

 

In case anyone with programming skills wants to try, they can download the source to EditInACR from here:

It's just two short scripts, one in Visual Basic and one in Javascript. In PSE 6 - 8, each new release of PSE required minor tweaks.
