Specifying an External Image Editor in Album

If you have another digital-imaging application installed on your computer, you can jump to that application directly from Album to edit your images. But what if you're lucky enough to have more than one image editor installed on your system? Well, you can instruct Album to choose one over the other by setting it as the default editor in the Preferences file. Here's how:

1. Choose EditOPreferences.

2. Select the Editing category on the left side of the Preferences dialog box, shown in Figure 12-2.

3. If you have an Adobe image-editing program, choose either Photoshop Elements 2.0 or later or Photoshop 6.0 or later.

If you have another image-editing program, you have two choices:

• Default Application for File Type: This option launches the image-editing program associated with the type of file you have selected. During the installation of programs like Elements and Photoshop, you have the option of associating the particular application with various file types. For example, if you are in Windows Explorer or at the desktop whenever you double-click a TIFF or JPEG, you can specify that Elements is launched. Similarly, if you are working in Album and want to externally edit a TIFF or JPEG, Album will automatically launch Elements.
