From what I can dscover Lightroom (Cloudy) does not support Elements as an external editor.

Since I retired I don't use Photoshop enough to justify the extra £10/month, and what I use it for is easily done in Elements.

I would have expected the user population of Lightroom (Cloudy) to have a significant proportion of people who would find Elements sufficient.

Any prospect of it happening? Feature request?

(Of course since I don't use it often, round trip by export and import is not too painful.)

Thanks

No, only Photoshop is supported as an external editor in Lightroom Desktop.

Put in a feature request:

Other Editors are (only) shown as alternatives, when installed on one's computer. If not, only Photoshop can do.
