Cannot change the photo in Lightroom 2 to 9 items

I use OS 10.6.5. I have Lightroom 2.7 installed, and I purchased Photoshop Elements 9. I'm trying to change my Lightroom photos in elements by going to the Menu, select Photos, then select them change in, but I'm not able to select one of the options to change in as they appear in gray. I uninstalled and re-installed both programs and that did not help. Any suggestions?   Let me know if you need more information.

Thank you



I think LR should automatically detect PS Elements and set up as an external editor, when being installed. However, if there is a problem and it is not automatically set up, you can try and set up manually yourself. Instructions on how to do this are here; l

I had an older version of PS Elements on my system, when I started using LR and LR does not pick it up as an external editor - I guess that's because I have PS CS5 installed, and he who used instead.

I hope that this work around will solve the problem.

  • Cannot change the Collections in Lightroom 3.6

    After the removal of a Smart Collection in Lightroom 3.6, the possibility to modify the Collection that was previously in the context menu is a party.  Double-clicking on the name of the Collection will not change either dialog box.  I tried to remove preferences and leaving the Lightroom to create a new, but it does not solve it no more.  Don't know what else to try.

    Thank you, Larry Goodhew

    OK, but are definitely by clicking on a Smart Collection and not the entire Collection called smart Collections?

    If you are clicking on a Smart Collection, could you post a screenshot of the context menu that you don't see?

  • Lightroom can't change the photos of mark IV 5 d in 1DS camera profiles

    May I ask on Lightroom camera profiles? I can't change the photos of mark IV 5 d in 1DS camera profiles. When I tried to change it, the color saturation is very low, as black and white photos.

    Before I used Adobe DNG Converter & DNG Profile Editor to make my own Canon 1DS camera profiles. The effects of the 1DS the color profiles that surrounds the peoples were adorable. It was a success with 5 d mark III.

    But now, using the new camera 5 d IV. I followed the steps of old, using DNG Profile Editor to open it and then choose Canon 1DS DCP to export. The effects of saturation of color does not become as before. It turns very low over the DNG Profile Editor, when I tried to export a new dcp 1DS file in lightroom, looks still very low color saturation.

    I would ask if anyone has come across such a problem...

    I hope that someone can help and can solve my problem.

    Thank you!

    someone already answered my question. The answer is: in the DNG profile editor just add + 1 saturation (any button of saturation), it goes back to normal.

    Thank you all!

    I read online for a solution for this for two hours. I tried all the solutions I found. Please can someone help me with this error message

    "Lightroom cannot use the catalouge named 'lightroom' because it is not writable and cannot be opened.

    I changed the permissions, without success.

    I ran as administrator with no luck.

    Thank you very much

    At this point, I think that you need to restore a recent backup of your catalog file.

  • Good for laptop - cannot change the ISP; keep returning to a previous provider

    Windows 7 laptop of my grandson, I'm migrating FIREFOX (excellent resource!) of my aging XP desktop. An existing Mozilla installation on the guarded device tries to connect to an ISP in Sydney (1000km) which kept out, I guess because the signal is too weak. Too far - on the Internet?

    Reinstalled my new ISP contact, reinstalled a fresh copy of Firefox, copied the old profile XP (just underneath the random string file name), but cannot change the fault. Firefox at startup tries to raise the old ISP (Sydney) and expires, and then allowing me to establish a manual connect with the ISP (my current) new.
    Perhaps a clue: in my Firefox troubleshooting info, change preferences, the browser start page is the address of 'old', with 'override mstone' ignore, what look like prints of registry entries, but I can't change all that - and maybe it's wise! An annoying secondary question: on arrival, the laptop listed no administrator user. So I am me came as an administrator, but I wonder if a past or current even Admin hidden could register (or other) entered resistant to change.

    Late discovery: the laptop is apparently infected with browser pirate Search Google throws a series of removal procedures, and I'm now working through them.
    What Miss me?

    Sometimes a problem with Firefox can be a result of malware installed on your computer, you may not be aware of.

    You can try these free programs to search for malicious software that work with your existing anti-virus software:

    Microsoft Security Essentials is a good permanent antivirus for Windows 7/Vista/XP, if you do not already have one.
