    I would like to use Photoshop 6 and Lightroom 4.4, together - i.e. to have the ability to use Photoshop 6 whilst still in LR and using PS on the image that I have in LR ………. e.g. whilst in LR - click on File - then Plug in - image is opened in PS6, I perform a few actions on it and save it back to LR

    just as I do with Silver Efex Pro or Perfect Efex

    and to explain further - I am trying to speed up what I now do manually

    My work flow is to use LR to import all my images and perform most of my adjustments

    I then export the file to my Desktop and open it in Elements or PS to perform another few tasks, some of which are (standard) and which I have automated, i.e. created "actions" for …….. I then save the PS/Elements file as a .psd and import it back into LR where I really want to keep it and export it again as a jpeg before posting it to the web, (if that's what I want to do) …….. it takes time and I could do this quickly if I had the ability to work in PS at the same time as LR without exporting a jpeg as the link between the two programs

    does such a plug in exist?

    i do the same thing, but as a .tiff from Lr to Ps, and sometimes back to Lr, still as a .tiff.

    would be cool if you could send whatever image from Lr to Ps like you could with Ps to Ai.

    Thanks Luke - just what I need

    quite "dim" of me as that is the way I used to do it

    Photo - Edit in or simply right click

    The bit about custom (export) settings and smart objects is interesting
