canvas1.backdrop contains an image.

Now I want to open that image in an external OSX image editor, outside my RB APP.

How do I do that?

Do you care specifically what image editor? If not, you can write it to disk and then use FolderItem.Launch on that file. If you do care, you'll have to use some declares to call LaunchServices or NSWorkspace.
