I've now simply uninstalled PS 2019. Now LR defaults back to opening in PS 2018 which works fine. I'll reinstall once this has been sorted.

Hi!

My photoshop recently updated to CC v.20. I usually work between LR and PS, using the LR as a raw editor and PS to do the manipulation. 
Since the update, I've experienced problems in PS. Sometimes doesn't recognize the file, not allow any function. Other times, allows it but gets really slow, presents problems in preview the effects, etc.
I'm not versed in code nor computer language, however, I cannot find any error or crash drive. CPU seems to be working normally and it seems recognized by PS. If I open the exact same file directly on PS, runs just fine. 

Kind regards,
Alexandra

This is a likely due to a known problem with the recent release of PS 20.0.1. Open PS first and leave it open. When you want to do more editing in PS on an image you are working on in LR they should  open in PS as expected with all relevant editing commands available. See earlier comments from Jeffrey Tranberry on this issue.

Same issue for me.  Reset both LR and PS preferences and still have the problem.   If image is opened directly via Camera Raw, PS works fine.  Otherwise, we should get a rebate for LR/PS package because it doesn't work.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled No longer possible to edit LR files in PS CC after last update.

After the very last  PS update, I can no longer edit images coming from LR. For instance, I cannot duplicate layer, all menus are grayed, I cannot stamp it to other workable one, etc. If I open that image directly from PS all works fine.  It also works right in my desktop which I did not update.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled LR to PS, PS is unresponsive to commands in first instance.

Since the recent PS updates, in Lightroom Classic CC when I select 'Edit in Photoshop' on one of my .NEF images, Photoshop loads up as normal but then I am unable to do anything with the image in PS. Duplicating a layer will not work as well as pretty much everything else. I have to close the image in PS, go back into LR and select 'Edit in Photoshop' again and then everything works fine, it is just a pain having to do this every session.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom to Photoshop flaw.

When trying to further edit a Lightroom image in Photoshop, I use PHOTO>Edit In> Photoshop 2019. When the image comes up in Photoshop, everything in the FILTER tab is greyed out, including all installed plug ins. When I uninstall 2019, and use 2018, everything works perfectly. What's the problem? This problem exists on two separate computers.

Reading this thread, it seems that everyone is reporting this issue between Lightroom and Photoshop. I am not a Lr user, but I do use Br and Ps and I have this problem when browsing Br and then opening an image through ACR to Ps. Most menus are grayed out. I am on Windows 10. I have rebooted, uninstalled/reinstalled Ps CC 20.1 and still the problem persists. If I launch Ps before I send an image from Br everything seems fine. This is my workaround until the issue is fixed.

My two cents worth,
Peter

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Bug while exporting picture from LR to PS with Ctrl+E.

When exporting a picture from LR classic CC (version 8) to PS (buid 20.0.1) the menu items in PS  stay disabled (like there is no picture open). When I first open PS (no file open) and then exporting the picture the menu items are able.

When this issue is fixed, how can we find out?  Does Adobe have an official notification process?  Tech support says the integration issue between LR and PS 20.0.1  is a know issue.  They apparently keep pushing the defective version.  I've gone back to 20.0 and don't want to upgrade until this issue is fixed.

I don't know if it has anything to do with it, but after reading someone has Flickr installed, I realized I didn't have this problem until I added the Flickr publishing service about a week ago. Could just be a coincidence.

I don't have Flickr and still had the problem.

I haven't read all the latest replies, but someone brought to my attention they have the same problem when opening a photo from Bridge.

I could not replicate that problem myself, but maybe worth looking into by Adobe?

I don't know if this will work for others, but it works for me.

I work with Bridge and PS and had the same issues, below is how I solved this,

Open Photoshop with a TIFF or PSD file, which has layers.

Do not open via ACR, but directly in Photoshop, do not open with Photoshop already opened.

I Just select a new layer in that file, which fixes the problem for all other files and the grayed out area's.

 

However, I need to do this every time I start Photoshop again.

It's a silly issue, but it gives me time to wait for a fix weithout the need to uninstall/install
