PS Classic, iMAC, 32gb, Lr and PS all up to date!.
Scenario 1: today I send single photos from Lightroom to PS for further editing via COMMAND E.
Scenario 2. if I want to always make those single photos going to PS Smart Objects I have to go (each time) to (Lr) PHOTO, then EDIT IN, then select OPEN AS A SMART OBJECT IN PHOTOSHOP.
GOAL: send ALL photos (one at a time) from Lightroom to PS as Smart Objects; however, I want to shorten the steps set out in Scenario 2 (above).
HELP: are there any default settings/short-cuts that will send each photo to PS as a Smart Object?
There are just too many steps in Scenario 2. I’m looking some short-cuts.
Thanks - Bob
I'm a windows user not Mac. On Windows you can type Alt+P E O which quickly selects the menu item (Alt+a letter being the standard windows method of shortcutting to a menu). But I don't know whether Macs have those menu shortcuts?
The Mac does not have the Option (Alt) shortcuts to activate menus and menu items; that’s Windows only.
Thanks for confirming Jane. I'll leave my post up in case a Windows user stumbles over the thread on a search with axsimilar issue. Unfortunately it doesn't help Tom though.
I wouldn't use a short cut - but rather the context menu.
