Hello, my name is Dan.
I will do my best to help you, the only stupid question is the unasked one.

What version of iPhoto is this? Look in About iPhoto.
You have PSE selected as the external editor, I suggest right clicking on any photo in iPhoto and selecting SHow in Finder.
Go there and right click the photo and select Open with PSE and see what happens.

iPhoto 11.


i did not get the SHOW IN FINDER choice when I right clicked on a photo

My fault, it used to do that.
Now it shows this.
Did you try Edit in External Editor? That should open PSE providing that is set in iPhoto preferences.

If that fails I suggest repairing permissions and reinstalling PSE.

Repairing Permissions

Try that and let me know please. This is posted as an answer but may not be the final answer.
