How do I access all the images I have saved in iPhoto albums?
July 24, 2010 at 1:27 pm
iPhoto and Elements don’t let you share albums, although you can set iPhoto to use Elements as it’s “editor” in the iPhoto Preferences.

I have just watched the video on how to edit iPhoto images directly into PSE8. In the iPhoto preferences, I set ‘edit photo’ to Photoshop Elements 8. As I am using a laptop with a track pad, I right click using the option key with the track pad. When I open a photo and go to ‘Edit’ at the top, there is no choice for opening PSE8. I have tried every trick I can think of. The ‘help’ menu on iPhoto also explains how to go into iPhoto’s preferences to click/check how you want to edit your photos. Clear explanation BUT, there is no ‘edit in external editor.’
Here is a screen shot of my edit drop down menu:
Can’t even show you that. Anyway, there is NO ‘edit in external editor’ on my iPhoto ’09.
I’ve been trying to do this for 1 year and finally… decided to ask about why I cannot do this.
Please do respond to my email address as I may never find this page again!

Can I import a photo from iPhoto to Bridge ? I would like to use the Raw converter in Bridge that comes with Elements 8.

In iPhoto, set your preferences to edit your photos in Bridge. Then when you click on Edit in iPhoto the photo will open in Bridge. You can now select File>Open in Camera Raw in Adobe Bridge to edit using the Raw converter in Elements 8. I just figured this out last week!!

This just a question about showing my photos in Adobe Bridge on my mac. When I bring my raw photos in from my Canon Professional program, I am not able to view my photos. It shows up as a white piece of paper. Is this normal, or do I have something set incorrectly. Also I am unable to get my pictures from my Mac Aperture program.

Program stopped after just a short time. How do I get it to continue?

Since the program stopped,I did not learn how to import photos with bridge ; therefore , elements 8 is of no use to me if I can not get the photos imported . Sorry that I renewed my subscription.

I’m not sure why the video isn’t playing all the way through, but I sent you an email message to see if we can help you out.
I’m sorry for the trouble.

I’m a little sorry I just bought PSE 8 too. It is easier to use Flickr or Picasa or Photobucket to edit without tearing my hair out.
