Mac Picasa to Photoshop Button

Although it’s already pretty straightforward to right-click on an image in Picasa to edit it in Photoshop, sometimes it’s nice to be able to just tap a button.

If you’re on a mac, you’ll notice this button designed for CS3 doesn’t work for you. I’ve taken their work and made it work for any version of Photoshop on a Mac.

To add this button to your Picasa, click to automatically download and install. Let me know in the comments below if it works for you or if you run into any trouble.

  1. hey rob, thank you very much for this cool button!! it works flawlessly with my cs5 and i often use and enjoy it 🙂

  2. thank you very much!! this is what I was searching for! works perfectly!

  3. Wonderful, after 18 months of sheer frustrations I can now open the photo in Photoshop, Great job One problem, I have both PS4 and PS5 It will always open the PS5 but I want it to go to the PS4 I am on a Mac and would love to know how

    Thanks in advance


  4. @Erik: Unfortunately, I believe it will always launch the “most recently installed” version of Photoshop automatically. Not sure how to change that for you.

  5. Thanks so much

    Is it not possible in the API to type photoshop 4??


  6. Unfortunately not. It launches by photoshop’s “bundleId” which is just “photoshop” no matter the version.

  7. This is great, when i right-clicked/ctrl clicked, Photoshop was not an option in my “Open With…” menu. Found this extension while evaluating Picasa, and that would have been a deal breaker, if not for this tool. Thanks!

  8. Hi Thanks for a fantastic button As I am at my sons who is a mackie-I am not but getting up to speed with a different system, I did try another button that did not work. So thanks for helping this old man out

  9. Thank you, just what I was looking for!
