Opening your image from Lightroom as a Smart Object in Photoshop

Well the weekend is nearly upon us and hopefully the weather will be good to us. And gives us photographers, both professional and amateur, good weather to go out and shoot our images. For this week’s Friday Quick Tip I give you another video by Benjamin Ward about opening your images as Smart Objects in Photoshop, directly from Lightroom.

A great tip.. and one that I must remember to do.  It is so easy using the keyboard shortcut CTRL+E (PC) and CMD+E (MAC) to edit a Photo in Photoshop.. But that only opens your image in Photoshop. And then you have to convert it to a smart object.

So far I can’t find anywhere a keyboard shortcut to open your image in Photoshop as a smart object. And the only way to open your image is to Right Click and select Edit in and scroll down to Open as a smart object in Photoshop.

Come on Adobe give us a keyboard shortcut for this..

Have a good weekend … bye for now… happy snapping.
