p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Changes from Photoshop, not visible in Lightroom. Why?


I've been reading Scott kelby's book on lightroom, and it says if you do an edit, do changes in Photoshop then just save the file and exit.Now go back to Lightroom and you should see the image you created rigght next to the original.
Only problem is I go back to Lightroom and theres nothing there but the original..
I would like to do most of my editing in Photoshop, and just use Lightroom for looking up and finding images.
So far the two programs aren't working together, but I don't know why.Its probably a settings issue, just don't know where.

Did you start in LR and then select Edit in PS and keep LR open? That's how LR will automatically see the changes when you are done. Otherwise, if you just edited the photo in PS you'll need to add the edited version to LR's catalog.

I think it might work better If I open the files in Photoshop, make adjustments, then import the images after, would that work and save my changes ?

It won't work "better", but it will work. You could also synchronize the folder in LR (right-click the folder on the left of the library) after changing the file in PS.

The best way is what Bruce (and probably Scott Kelby) say to do -- choose a file in LR and Edit in PS.

Or you could also just use Bridge

Chances are that your Lr preferences have been messed up. Check out the preferences for external editing with Ps. Make sure that it saves the edited image in the same folder as the original and that it will be shown stacked with the original in the Lr catalog. You could save it elsewhere, or you could save it without being stacked in which case where it appears may vary according to how your catalog is sorted.

Then when you are viewing the file in Lr you press the buttons required to edit a copy in Ps, you do the edits in Ps (which will open automatically if required), and press the save buttons in Ps. You'll then find the shiny new image already stacked with the original in Lr.

Lr will only let you edit one image at a time this way.

You can send multiple images to Ps for specialist activities such as panorama stitching but it requires a slightly different approach at the Lr end.

Be aware that this process will not let Ps tweak the raw file edit settings - it creates a new file for Ps to edit and return to Lr. If you subsequently make another change to the raw image in Lr then that change will not be reflected in the file that was previously returned from Ps but you free to repeat the edit in Ps process if you think the change was significant enough to warrant the extra effort.

Thanks Alan and everyone else, I did set it up exactly as you said, but the images I adjusted in PS never showed up at all. Maybe I'll just do my edits first and then import the images to Lightroom.
Just not sure If Lightroom will detect the changes I made in PS before I imported them.
If I'm going to see the images in Lightroom, minds as well see them at there best.
Other thing was the smaller images look awful in Lightroom. Almost like there extremely low res JPG shots, not much good for judging anything.

Heavy sigh.... I reported this bug to Adobe in LR 4 era. They are working on it.

The bug on my system is that if I am working with keywords and selecting the photo with keyword. Then edit in Photoshop and return the photo is "not there." If I go to the folder and synchronzie, it shows up, but the keywording does not work. I then re keyword and it comes back. I re keyword, by clicking on the highligthed keyword de keyword and click again and it is back. With one or two, not too bad.

If you select your photos with a collection, no problem. If you are in folder view, no problem.

I have demonstrated it to Adobe, they recognized the problem. And I have re asked and still no solution.

I assume it is either my diffrerent setup or my strange workflow that makes this issue to be rare and unimportant to them.

I am so used to this error, it no longer bothers me day to day. Every once in a while, I go "What the ..." then I remember.

If it doesn't show up, just click the Import button again.
