I am trying to edit phots from Aperture in Photoshop.  When the photo is back in Aperture as a psd file it does not apprear.  Message of unsupported format appears.  Does anyone have a list of supported formats? psd, tif, pdf all seem to be unsupported.  jpeg is not an option in the save as menu in PS

    You set the format in Aperture prefs on the Export tab.  PSD should work.  Same with TIFF.


    Use the "Edit with PS ... " command. 


    When done in PS, simply close and save the file.


    It should then show in Aperture.


    You do not "Save As" in PS.


    Have you ever been able to us PS as the External Editor specified in Aperture?

    Just to confirm what Kirby says, PSD works for me also without any problems.

    version of Photoshop

    Also, are you staying in RGB mode, or are you converting to a different color space such as LAB or CMYK?
