We are working towards giving preference to Photoshop for editing linked images, if Ps is installed. This may mean the label showing as ‘Edit on Photoshop’ when an linked image is selected. The change does not affect OS level file type associations.

I want to be able to edit jpeg images in illustrator to open directly in photoshop and not paint when edit original button is selected. However, I do NOT want all jpeg images on my hard disk to be designated as photoshop files. I want my photos to continue to open up in the image previewer. Therefore changing the edit original "route" should be a preference setting that can be applied uniquely to the user's preference so they can open up the images in the app of their choice from illustrator.
