Save as to original folder issue

Hello, I think there is a bug with the "legacy" implementation. I have the latest Photoshop and the lastest Windows OS. I have "Enable Legacy Save As", "Do not append "Copy" to file name" and the "Save As to Original Folder" options selected.

Issue is that the Save As does NOT save to the original folder, I have to manually specify it when I use the Lightroom, Edit in, Edit in Photoshop 2022 option. I think it may be saving to a previous folder, not the one where the original file (usually the .NEF in my case) when I access Photoshop from Lightroom. I am pretty sure this used to work, that I did not have to manually specify the original folder (the one in Lightroom, containing the raw files). Right now, this is impacting my workflow, as I have to take the time to specify the intended file location in Photoshop.

Sorry, if I posted this twice, my first time with this system.

Thanks, tried it but it did not help. Photoshop is still ignoring the original location that should have been sent from Lightroom.

Only a Photoshop [SAVE] will (without intervention) return the new derivative file to the folder of the original in Lightroom-Classic.

The moment you use [Save As] then you are 'on your own' and the 'save as' location is up to you!

This has ALWAYS been the advice to use [SAVE] for files to return to LrC.

 

The "legacy" implementation of [Save As] is only meant to allow the saving of file types other than TIF or PSD. It does not change the advice to use [Save] when you [Edit-In] from LrC.

 

 

Regards. My System: Lr-Classic 11.4.1 Photoshop 23.4.1, ACR 14.4.2, Lightroom 5.3, Lr-iOS 7.0.2, Bridge 12.0.2, Windows-10.

Rob is correct. You should not use 'Save as' at all. Use 'Save'. Don't worry that the file name still has the raw extension when you look at the image window in Photoshop. The reason for that is that this is an unsaved file, and so Photoshop shows the last known name. Photoshop cannot and will not save as raw however, so it won't overwrite the original but save the edited image with a .tiff of .psd extension.
