Lightroom: Add warning before opening a large number of files in Photoshop from Lightroom (Ctrl+E).

I suggest including a warning before opening a large number of files in Photoshop from Lightroom. Because sometimes if you want to batch export and you accidentally hit Ctrl+E instead of Ctrl+Shift+E, all the images (hundreds, in my case) open in PS.

I would suggest the warning limit be anything over 10-15 images.

Bridge has it, and I rarely select the contents of an entire folder in Bridge by accident.

Since part of many Lightroom workflows involve having multiple images selected, having a warning seems to me much more important in Lightroom than Bridge.

I agree with this warning. There is nothing much you can do but wait (a long time) for PS to give up importing the images once this action has been initiated from LR.

Great idea.  This is an error I make often ... and then have to Google for how to close multiple windows in PS...

Not something I've done yet, but can imagine it would be quite frustrating the time when I do!
