LR Not Sorting by Capture Time After Photoshop Edit

For quite sometime now, I have been experiencing an issue with Photoshop edited images going to the beginning of a collection after being edited in Photoshop.  Here's a description of my work-flow:  

 

1. From LR, I select highlight the image and then select <Edit in Adobe Photoshop 2022>.  NOTE:  The image is in the correct sort order (Capture time) at this time.

 

2. PS opens and I do my editing.  I then save the image and the edited image (along with the original DNG file) now appear at the very beginning of my collection.  If I go to the Library Module and change the sort by to anything else (i.e. Added Order) then change it back to Capture Time, it then organizes both the PS edited image and the original RAW image in the correct order.

 

While on a call yesterday with LR Support for a completely unrelated issue, I mentioned this issue to the support rep and he saw it and advised that I update the C++ packages and if that didn't work, to completely re-install LR.  I did both, yet the problem persists.  I am experiencing this on two desktops, so it's not isolated to one machine.

 

Do any of you have suggestions?  Many thanks for your assistance.

Please try resetting the preferences of Lightroom Classic:   https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom-classic/help/setting-preferences-lightroom.html

 

It's recommended to backup your preferences before you reset the preferences to the default settings:

Thank you for the reply!  Unfortunately, that didn't work.  I even renamed my preferences file (appdata\roaming\adobe\lightroom) and tried it and still, the same thing is happening.  Very strange!

I tried reproducing the steps you described but didn't observe the problem. 

 

Perhaps make a full-resolution screen recording showing all the steps of the problem.  Upload the video to Dropbox, Google Drive, or similar and post the sharing link here. The video might make it clearer how to reproduce the problem.

 

Unless Adobe can easily reproduce the problem, they're unlikely to look at it.

Thanks for all your help with this.  It's very strange.  It happens on 2 different desktops.  Here is the link to a video I made showing the issue.

I have my photos sorted by capture date with the newest picture at the top. I have a very similar issue when editing in Photoshop as you demonstrate in this video, with my edited photo then appearing at the very bottom of the library (as if it's the "oldest" picture). 
Closing and opening the app does resolve the issue, but I have also noticed that it resolves itself after some amount of time (usually 2-5 minutes). In my mind, it's like the library needs to fully rescan itself to determine exactly where this "new" photo fits chronologically. Maybe not what's actually happening, but it does eventually find it's way back to the proper spot in the library. 
Have you ever waited 10-15 minutes and continue to work in the app to see if it moves to the correct order, rather than just restarting the app right away?

Not ideal, but at least it's not "permanently" broken.

Unfortunately, that didn't work.  I did a quick edit in PS and saved it and both the edited TIFF and the original DNG appeared at the beginning of the collection.  I left and it's 2 hours later and both are still in the same spot.  If I change the sort order to anything else (i.e. Added Order) then change it back to Capture Time, both the original DNG and the edited TIFF appear in the right spot.  It's very odd.  Again, the same thing happens on another desktop that I use.  Thanks for your help.

Interesting that the original file also gets put out of order. Not something I have experienced. Definitely some sort of bug. Hopefully Adobe can address. Is there some way to bring this to their attention? I use a Mac and could upload a similar video if that would help.

I tried replicating all the details shown in your video -- editing in a large collection, filters turned off, using smart previews (with and without the option Use Smart Previews Instead Of Originals For Image Editing) -- and unfortunately couldn't replicate the problem.

 

One other thought: In Photoshop, do the menu command Help > System Info and verify you're on version 23.4.1.  Sometimes LR or PS can behave oddly when they're not both on the latest version.

Yeah, it's 23.4.1.  Thanks for your help.  Not for sure what else to do at this point.

I don't have any further ideas either.
