EDIT: Re-reading your post I note "image exported from Lightroom Classic"

Do not tick the [Rename] box in the Export dialog! It's that simple.

The Exported file will be the same Filename and a File-type suffix for the file-type set in the 'File Settings'.

If you Export as "Original" (Why?) then a warning dialog will ask to overwrite or [use a unique name] if the destination is the 'Same Folder'.

 

Following answer is for [Edit-in] Photoshop, NOT [Export]

In the Lightroom-Classic Preferences > External Editing tab:

Set the Naming Template to (simply) "Filename".

eg. IMG_9543.NEF  saves from Photoshop as IMG_9453.TIF (or PSD)

You can also set the Preference to any of the File Renaming Presets available (or a Preset you define by [Edit]. )

Mr Cullen:

Thanks for your reply but I am not understanding your answer. My System: LR Classic  1.2, Camera Raw 14.2;

Photoshop 23.2.1; System: Mac OSX Big Sur 11.6.4.

Perhaps your answer is explicity for a Windows based system.  For example I have no "Naming Template" in my Lightroom Classic > Preferences > External Tab.  When I say " image exported from Lightroom Classic" I mean I clicked on the image Cmd + E  and chose the "Edit a Copy with Lightroom Adjustments." option.  Then the image immediately opens in PS.  My LR >Preferences>External Editing page doesnt have a "Rename" box.

I solved the problem. In Lightroom Classic>Preferences>External Editing>Template, I simply chose the option "PSedit Preset." Then, for example, when I export to PS a LR image named "girl_48.jpg", and use "Save As" ( Shift + Cmd + S) in PS, the image opens back in LR as "girl_48_PSedit.psd." However when I open the same image again in PS all the editing layers, gradients, Blend Modes, Blend-If treatments are preserved and availabe for furtherr editing.

I have no "Naming Template" in my Lightroom Classic > Preferences > External Tab.

Do you not see at the base of the Preferences dialog?

And you can create [Edit] and save your own Rename templates

use "Save As"   The correct command in Ps is [SAVE]   "Save As" will not reliably add the new image to the Catalog.

when I open the same image again in PS all the editing ...... are preserved and availabe for furtherr editing.

If you ever re-open a TIF or PSD in Photoshop by [Ctrl+E] - Choose [Edit Original] that will reliably re-open layers, etc.
