After importing raw files into Lightroom, I want to work on some of them in Photoshop, then save it back to Lightroom as a JPEG file - not a huge TIFF. I used to be able to do this in previous versions, but not in CS5 and Lightroom 3. It is a pain to have to go re-import everything I work on. Any solutions?
David, I looked at the bug notes. This behavior occurs when the file is 16-bit and saved as a JPEG. In this case, Photoshop wants to use the Save "As a Copy" option because we don't want to automatically overwrite/lose the users 16-bit data. The workaround is to convert the image to ‘8bits/channel’ mode, and uncheck the ‘As a copy’ option in the ‘Save as’ menu. The saved JPEG should then be saved and imported to Lightroom.
Can you let me know if these steps work as expected?
