I am trying to edit my pictures with iPhoto 9.4.2 but my Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 will launch but without the image to be edited appearing in its application. This does not occur with my Aperture application.

 

I repaired iPhoto's permissions, did a zapping of my PRAM, did a Safe restart and ran Disc Utilities.

 

Have restarted the Applications several times as well as the computer itself.

 

Any ideas?

    Have you ever been able to get photos to open in PSE previously?  Make sure when you select PSE as the external editor you select the PSE app that's in the Support Files folder in the PSE folder.iPhoto002.jpg

    Thanks Old Toad

     

    This resolved this issue. But, I am surprised. Aperture would open PSE without problems. Also, when I looked under <home>/Applications/PSE10/PSE10 the latter was what I had always selected previously. I showed that it was last modified in 2012. I had always selected this level for my editor (one level up from your recommendation) and it has worked in Aperture and used to work in iPhoto.

     

    I checked <home>/Applications/PSE10/PSE10/support files/PSE.app and noted that it had been modified yesterday when I was having trouble. So, it was launched, as I mentioned, but no photo for image editing was appearing.

     

    Today, I went back into iPhoto and reselected PSE as you recommended and it worked! An image now appears.

     

    I thought that was odd.


    But thanks for getting me up and running again!

    Often links to apps get broken or the like and it might take a reboot to get everything hooked up right again.  Rebooting is a under used trouble shooting tool.
