Hi,

I've edited a photo from Lightroom (5.3) to Photoshop (23.3.1) by using the "edit in Photoshop" function. After I've saved the photo in Photoshop back to Lightroom, I wanted to open it in Photoshop again in order to continue my edits, but I figured that all layers etc have been merged to one. Is this normal? Is there no chance to maintain all edits in the Lightroom container?

 

thanks!

 

regards
Juergen

Expected Behavior:

 

  1.  Edit Photo in PS and return to Lightroom
  2.  If no LrD edits are performed on the returned file, editing a second time in PS should open the file with layers intact.

 

  1.  Edit Photo in PS and return to Lightroom
  2.  If any LrD edits are performed on the returned file, editing a second time in PS should open the file with layers flattened.

 

I hope that helps you diagnose your issue.

ok, great, thanks! Do you have any idea if I could revert a file, once it has been flatened by LR again?

Simply quesiton: How to reopen a already started project from Lightroom directly. After editing a image i closed it in photoshop, the tif project apears in Lightroom and it's synced to the cloud. So far so good 🙂 

But if i want to edit it again an click "edit in photoshop" lightroom generates a new project with only one layer instead of just opening the full project. Any advice here? Or is lightroom just killing all layers storing the image to the cloud as a tif and the project is gone? In this case i will leave lightroom again and go back to lightroom classic. Cloud is nice, but i want to have everything everytime locally and cloud is only a additional feature. 

 

Funny thing...photoshop don't see the open images as last opend as well. From my perspective this is a bug.

Workaround 1: Befor closing, go to your temp location and copy the tif to your project folder, so it will not be deleted. You can add it then to the lightroom again. 

Workaround 2: Don't use lightroom to open in Photoshop....onyl for managment and sharing with models. Rest ist done in Lightroom Classic. 

 

In the end the whole eco systems feels messed up here, the hard urge to put everything into the cloud and feels not like a symbiosis of local working and online cloud.
