To be fair its not that it can't but that it can't see Elements 6. This seems to have happened because I trialled elements 10 and then deleted it (didn't feel the need to invest and upgrade) and lightroom 4 would see and open in elements 10. But ever since it fails to see elements 6. So I'm wondering if there is a menu setting where I can manually say "here it is". I've found the one that lets my specify any external editing software, but I'd prefer for it to integrate and see elements 6.
