I'm editing a picture of the beach I shot and it has a few adjustment layers. I wanted to save it and then open it in Color EFX to make other adjustments (detail enhancer etc.) and in Camera RAW to change the color profile(I don't know how to do it in PS). It won't let me open it. It'll display the error ' Failed to open image'. Could anyone help me out?
Color Efex Pro does not work on RAW images natively. If you are starting from a RAW image with either Aperture or Lightroom, the application will generate a rasterized (RGB) image from your original RAW f ile and send it to Color Efex Pro. You can use the Preferences for Aperture and Lightroom to choose the file type, color profile, and resolution of exported images.
