Newbie question- My Photos Library is on an external disk.

What features would you like to see in Pixelmator Pro?

How do I open files by clicking "Open an Image from Photos"- I get "No photos"

My set up is such that I have my Photos library on an external disk.

Hi there, could you check whether you're able to add images from your library in Pages or Keynote? You'll need to click the Media button in the toolbar and choose Photos. We use the same Apple framework, so I want to double-check whether the issue is on our end or not.

No. In Pages I get this messages - even with the Photos App open.


Similar with Keynote.

In that case, could you open the Photos app, choose Photos > Preferences, and see whether the Use as System Photo Library button is clickable? If it is, click it, then check whether that fixes the issue.
