In Lightroom CC 2015.8 when using the Edit in Photoshop CC 2017 feature, the image gets sent to Photoshop and is worked on as norma. Then when saved, closed, and returning to Lightroom, the image is not in the Library as is usually the case. Instead, one must now right click on the folder to synchronize it in order for the edited Photoshop PSD to appear. Is anyone else finding this to be the case?

It's kind of frustrating that whenever there seems to be an update for Lightroom, something essential like this gets broken along the way.

I noticed the same problem. After sending the file to Photoshop, I edit the file, and when saving it, it asks me where I want to save it to and what name and file extension to use. Before, the file would have "edit" added to the file name and it would go to the directory where the parent file resided and automatically imported into LR. Out could Adobe not notice this?

Are only JPEG files affected? Or does it happen to raw and Tiff files too?

So far I've only been using RAW files so it definitely affects Canon .CR2 files.

I can duplicate what you are seeing but only on JPEG files. I have filed a bug and attached this thread to it.

I was running LR CC (2015.8) under macOS 10.11.6. I was having problems with the Nikon D5100 .NEF files.

Try using "Photo > Edit In > Open as Smart Object in Photoshop" and see if it works that way. 

The regular "Edit in Photoshop" has been undependable for me since the beginning of LR CC. But Open as Smart Object always works. I eventually created a new LR keyboard shortcut for it.

I'm having that same issue using the latest updates of CC. I have to independently edit in PS, then save, then sync. Very frustrating. I have uninstalled and reinstalled PS CC 2017 and that still doesn't help. Just now, CC shows an update to LR CC, version 10 so I'm hoping this fixes this issue.

The latest update to LR CC 2015.10 didn't fix the issue. No file formats can be edited in PS via LR. Get this error message: "Some of the application components are missing from the Application directory. Please reinstall the application."

I updated both Lightroom and Photoshop to CC 2015 and CC 2017-respectively. Now I do not have the option to 'edit in photoshop'. I have tried uninstalling then reinstalling.. I have tried removing the .plist file, still nothing! This is so frustrating and I almost wish that I never updated!!!! 

HELP ME SOMEONE PLEASE!

I did the same as Mikalia. The only way to get it to work that I found was to delete PS 2017 completely and only use PS 2015 to edit from LR. The error message that I got with PS 2017 was that "some components were missing" or something like that so it wouldn't even give me the options to open at all from LR. Very disappointing that the updates screwed it all up.

I recently updated as well - now have Lightroom 2015.12 and Photoshop 2017.1.1. Lightroom sends the photos to Photoshop via Control E, or using the "Edit In Photoshop" menu option, but after editing and saving in Photoshop, the photos are not visible in Lightroom. I've also tried the "Open as Smart Object" choice, but it makes no difference.

The only way to get the edited photo back is to "save as" in Photoshop to a new location and re-import it into Lightroom.

I've checked all settings that I see on the Adobe site, including the compatibility settings. Have logged out of Creative Cloud, and relogged in. Have shut down both programs, rebooted, etc. 

I'm using windows 7 Ultimate, 64 bit.

I'll see if I can go back to an older version, but wanted to reinforce that this is a current issue.

Scott, 

I would recommend an uninstall of Lightroom and Photoshop, a system restart and then a reinstall from fresh downloads via the Creative Cloud app.  It sounds like the installation of one or the other was a little wonky. I am using both the versions you are and having no issues. 

Let us know how it goes.

I did exactly that 3 times and still the same result. The only version of PS that opens from LR now is the 2015.5 version.

Rikk, thanks for your reply and suggestions. I had already deleted and reinstalled both programs, which didn't fix the issue, but maybe I should try it again. Before I do that, I will say that after I sent the reply yesterday, I looked further in this forum and found a suggestion to clear out the preferences file from the app data roaming folder, which I did. That did not seem to fix the issue, so tried the next recommendation which was to start LR while holding down the shift and alt keys. That gives you a choice to reset preferences. After resetting, I looked for another folder to try, and when I processed a photo in PS, it actually came back to LR! So I thought that must be the fix.

But in testing a few other folders, what I actually see is that I cannot get the photo back from PS if it starts in a Collection Set. I am able to successfully send photos to PS and back if I use photos from Collections, but not Collection Sets. I can also successfully send photos from imported Library folders, that aren't even in a Collection.

Unfortunately, I can't tell you which step in my process may have fixed the function from the Library folders and from Collections, but maybe others can try the shift-alt way of restarting Lightroom and see if that helps. Just close LR, and restart it while holding those two keys. You then get the choice to reset it to factory preferences.

I also have a feeling that I was able to successfully send photos from Collection Sets before, but I can't prove it. Now that never works, and if that's a new issue, it occurred after my last update. If you never could do that, then I learned something useful at least.

Here's the Collection Set "UK 2012" and the subfolders which are the Collections, to be clear about what I'm talking about.

Scott, 

Thanks for the detailed information. 

I just tested and I can successfully edit from a collections set:  The file returns to the same folder as the original but does not return to the same collection as the original. If memory serves this is by design. 

If you initiate edit from the Collection Set, the image does not retain any collection membership.
If you initiate edit from the Collection, the image does retain collection membership
If you initiate edit from the Folder, the image does not retain collection membership.

Does that jive with your experience?
