Every time I try to use "Edit with..." to open a photo I'm viewing in Mac Photos I get a pop-up error message:

"The application “Pixelmator Pro.app” cannot open the specified document or URL."

Any idea how I can fix that?

Thanks.

That sounds, to me, potentially like a one-time glitch, so have you tried simply restarting your Mac? That tends to help quite a lot in cases like this. Otherwise, we'd love to hear from you at support@pixelmator.com for some more in-depth assistance!

Hello, I'm having trouble editing a photo directly from my photos app in Pixelmator. I restarted my mac as suggested but I still receive the same error: Image

That looks like it might actually be an issue with the Photos app rather than Pixelmator Pro. Do you have any other external editors that you could try and open the image in to confirm?
