Lightroom only gives option to edit in Photoshop 2015?? In preferences, it will not allow me to change the external edit program to Photoshop 2017 which is the current CC product. What can be done to sync lightroom 2015 CC to Photoshop 2017CC?

Go to Additional External editors and choose what version you want to send the images to. Normally the top external editor will be the latest, but sometimes it depends on your order of installing or updating.

That would work, but it would also limit you to only 'Edit in'. You will not have options like 'Open as Smart Object' or 'Open as layers'. I would first reset the Lightroom preferences (, and if that doesn't work I would uninstall and reinstall Lightroom.

Do you have an older version of Photoshop installed on a different drive like described in this thread?
