Tip: more than a single external editor in the Organizer

Sometimes, you may need more than a single external editor beside PSE (and PS if you have a subscription).

My suggestion is to create desktop shortcuts to the other editors which you find may be a good complement for the normal editor.

I have tested a desktop folder with the following apps shortcuts:

- Bridge

- Faststone

- Irfanview

- Geosetter

- xnviewMP

- OnONe Photo

- Even an older PSE editor (PSE 2021 with my current Organizer 2022)

You only have to drag and drop your icon from the organizer grid over the desired shortcut.


Side notes,

I have the Creative Cloud subscription, but I much prefer to stay with PSE. Selecting Bridge allows me to open the files (even jpegs) in the full ACR version; that gives me a better parametric editing workflow.

I find Fastone is excellent for browsing and more.

The other apps are useful in metadata management and more.
