    Not sure about the cloud version of Lightroom but in Classic the external editing preferences need to be updated to either change existing one for PhotoRAW to use 2023 as the external application or add a new one with 2023 as external application if you want to retain access to 2022.

    Thank you. I do not understand. I just want to get a photo from Lightroom into 2023.  I cannot even figure out how to import a photo from my desktop.  I have always had trouble with imports in onOne and that is why I finally broke down and subscribed to Lightroom but with this new in Ai I decided to try .. but I cannot seem to import a picture to try.  BTW I have beennusing PS, LR and other programmes for over 10 years so I am not new to this - just find any information hard to find.  I will give this a try tho.

    I have no idea how Lightroom CC works, but Photo Raw no longer works as a plugin. There are workarounds for that, but if you want an actual plugin, then you need to buy the Professional Plugins.

    This video helps explain some workarounds.

    Shari, glad that helped.

    Rick, it was the work around that Shari was trying to use, Lightroom's equivalent of PhotoRAW's SendTo is Edit In, but that needs a bit more setting up than PhotoRAW.

    Sorry about that. I have just had a quick look at Lightroom CC and it looks as though integration with other applications is far more restricted than with Lightroom Classic. Even if PhotoRAW still worked as a plug-in then that would only work with Lightroom Classic.

    With regards to importing from Desktop there is no need in PhotoRAW to import at all. In Browse click the Browse button at the top and then open the Local Drives section. You should then be able to drill down to your files from your Mac's Hard Disk entry. Find the Desktop folder and then click on the file you want to edit.

    If you do this a lot then you can add Desktop as a favourite, click on + at right hand side of Favourites line and navigated down then click Open.

    After editing you will need to export the edited version back to Desktop or wherever you want. You will then have to add it back into Lightroom CC.

    This is a complicated process but this is more down to the limitations of Lightroom CC not wanting to work with other applications. Process much easier with Lightroom Classic even without plugin support.
