Lightroom option "edit in Photoshop" no longer working. Need help to fix it!

Hello guys,

I'm using lightroom 4.2 and have recently discovered the following problem:

When I'm done editing in lightroom and I want to continue editing in photoshop everything works fine. Photoshop opens a copy and I can do my changes.

 

However, once I'm done editing in Photoshop I usually only hit "Option+s" to save the image and then switched back to Lightroom where I then found a copy of the Photoshop edited image in Lightroom again.

Now this doesn't work anymore and I cant figure out why. It is really disturbing my work flow since I manually have to reimport the edited images.

Could anyone make a guess on how I could fix this? Or what I'm doing wrong? I don't get it since I do everything the way I used to and it simpy won't work anymore!

 

Cheers guys,
Thank you!

The correct keyboard shortcut for saving the edited image in PS is Cmd+S on a Mac, not Opt+S. Or just use File>Save.

Thanks, but I use Cmd+S to save the image (just mixed it up in my text above). But it still does not work.
