I'm having a problem that CS5/Bridge does not recognize Aperture when I try and open up a photo. What am I doing wrong.

Thanks

AFAIK, Bridge only recognizes Adobe apps. Not sure why your workflow would need to open Aperture from Bridge. Aperture can open up Photoshop CS5 for more advanced edits but not the other way around.

Bridge can not access the Aperture library like some other Mac applications can. If you want to open the pictures directly from Bridge/CS5, you will have to point it to the folder on your hard drive where the images are stored. If you do open them this way, you will not see any of the edits that you have done in Aperture.

The correct way to do it is to export the image from Aperture to CS5. You do this by setting CS5 as the external editor in Aperture's preferences. Once you export from Aperture to CS5 and save the image, your CS5 edits will be shown in Aperture (as a new TIFF file). Bridge has no part in the Aperture/CS5 integration.

You are better off "round tripping" from Aperture. Go to Preferences and set CS5 as your editor. Then you just right mouse click on the photo and open it in CS5. Once you close or save from CS5 it will show up in Aperture.
