Edit Original Link Image in contextual menu
It would be a lot less clicks if one could right-click an image file and have "edit image" be in the contextual menu. Currently, click the object, go to links palette, click on the little pencil icon... photoshop launches... Kind of labor intensive...
If you have Control panel displayed, there is an Edit in Photoshop button there.
If not — there is a 'pencil' button that does the same in Links panel.
But there is none in context menu, here I agree.

Just like other CC applications, Ai should offer the possibility to open the source of a Placed image directly from within Ai. (Photoshop most of the time).
